Antelope Island State Park

Antelope Island State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Mountain biking in Utah conjures up images of redrock canyons in the south and of alpine mountains in the north. But would you ever imagine riding on island trails surrounded by aquamarine water? In the Caribbean perhaps, but in Utah? Biking at Antelope Island State Park is a unique experience that will leave an indelible impression that is very different from the rest of the state.

The encompassing views of inland sea, rocky island, and distant mountains combined with scents of sea breezes are surreal, and sunsets on Antelope Island are always superlative. White Rock Bay Loop and half of Split Rock Bay Loop are doubletrack; other trails are singletrack."

This trail is really different. You are out in the middle of the Great Salt Lake on a desert(really dry) island. The riding is ok but you share the trail with horses and you know what they leave behind. Trails are smooth except for some sandy sections and a few loose rock sections. Overall not the best place to ride but the scenery is what makes it fun. Don''t go in the summertime. Too hot!!
