Frary Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Antelope Island lies in the Great Salt Lake, and you may find yourself thinking of oceans when you spy the plentiful seagulls that happily call the area home. At forty-two square miles, Antelope Island is the largest of the islands in this huge lake."

"Ascend to the summit of the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. You’ll find spectacular vistas and excellent wildlife-viewing in a surprisingly distinctive geologic zone and natural habitat. This hike offers the best chance in Utah of spotting bighorn sheep."

"Antelope Island, a mountainous landmass in the middle of the Great Salt Lake, isn’t a place one would think to go ski touring. Low elevation and a ban on off-trail travel deter many would-be skiers. But if lake-effect snow dumps powder in the valleys that measures in feet instead of inches, then it’s a good opportunity to ski tour the island’s highest mountain, Frary Peak. Antelope Island is a state park, and the peak is located on the protected animal-sanctuary side of the island, where encounters with bison and antelope are common. As a result, park rangers are very strict about how you travel in the backcountry. You’ll avoid a citation if you stay on the trail and do not ski off the marked path. And if you follow the rules, you’ll be treated to an otherworldly tour high above the lake with 360-degree views that are uniquely Utah."
