Antelope Island Road Professional Review and Guide
"Frary Peak is the highest point on Antelope Island—a thoroughly original state park that sits in the Great Salt Lake (second saltiest body of water in the world) west of Salt Lake City. The trail rises quickly and is unfettered by trees, so the views around the island and across the lake stretch before you from the beginning of the hike. The hike runs through sparse grass and sage on this desert island as well as fascinating rock that dates back 2.7 billion years. The views across the island and the Great Salt Lake, along with wildlife such as bison, antelope, and deer, propel this highest-peak notch to a must-do status. From the summit you get 360-degree views that open the entire island, even the southern section, where public access is limited. The trail offers very little shade, so hiking in the morning or evening will provide the most comfortable temperatures. Take plenty of water."
