“An easy traverse with beautiful views of the Great Salt Lake.”— Yuriy Syrota
The trail descends about 200 feet from the ridge, then hugs the shoulder of a horizontal band of conglomerate as it follows the canyons carved into the south face of the mountain. The canyon walls are rocky and steep, with exposed cliff areas.
After following the shoulder where the limestone and dolomite meets the conglomerate layer around two canyons, the trail splits and one branch descends back to the lake shore. Keep left to continue on the shoulder area further around the island.
The trail suddenly ends right before cliff with great views to Great Salt Lake.
