Hike the Frary Peak Trail

Utah Frary Peak Trailhead

Added by Tom Klyczek

See beautiful views over Salt Lake from the highest point on Antelope Island. The hike is fairly easy with no real obstacles, and elevation gains of 2050' in 3.5 miles. Duration is 4-5 hours.

This is a fairly easy hike starting at the parking lot near the trailhead. You will encounter little or no obstacles on your hike, just a nice incline leading you to the highest point of the island.

You will be able to see lots of buffalo roaming around most of the island on your way up. Be sure to drink lots of water if hiking in the summer as there is virtually no shade on this hike. Once you reach the top the views of the mystic Salt Lake are undeniably one of the coolest sights in the country.

After you finish the hike, drive around the island to the beach and try floating in the water. The buoyancy is incredible as if somebody is pushing you out of the water as you float on your back. Definitely a must on the bucket list.

How to Get There

Though But Worth It!!

This was much tougher than I thought from the reviews... I'd say more like intermediate/hard. Medium to steep inclines with a few flatter trails. Won't do it again this year (2016). Take sunscreen, water and snacks.
