There are 40 miles of non-motorized trails on Antelope Island, all with spectacular views of the Great Salt Lake and surrounding mountains. The trails also offer excellent opportunities to view the island's wildlife, though there is no water available along the trails.
Check our personal notes for detailed descriptions of these trails:
|Distance:||.25 miles one-way||Rating:||Easy|
|Description:||This short trail takes you to the highest point on the trail. At 760 feet above the lake you will be treated to dramatic views of the Wasatch mountains and the Wasatch front.|
|Split Rock Bay Trail|
|Distance:||5 miles one-way||Rating:||Moderate|
|Trailhead:||This trail Spurs off of White Rock at the Split Rock Bay overlook.|
|Description:||Traversing the Provo terrace of Lake Bonneville, this trail takes you past a historical horse corral. Past the corral the trail makes a dramatic descent into Split Rock Bay and loops back up to an overlook. The trail to the horse corrals is moderate and is a "must see" stop. Steep switchbacks and long climbs make the remainder of the trail most challenging. Big horn sheep and mule deer are seen on occasion.|
|White Rock Bay Loop|
|Distance:||9.2 miles round trip||Rating:||Easy to Moderate|
|Elevation:||Total Ascent:||710 feet|
|Description:||The heart of the trail system. Traveling south the trail meanders along the west shore and gradually climbs to a ridge 710 feet above the trailhead. The trail is relatively easy but has long ascents, descents, and is sandy in places. Excellent wildlife viewing opportunities.|
