"Stansbury Island provides a fascinating glimpse into the geology and natural history of the Great Salt Lake. This loop hike gains all of its elevation in the first mile before following the ancient shoreline of a much larger lake. Solitude, salt, and sweeping lake views define the experience." Read more
Best Hikes With Dogs: Utah (The Mountaineers Books)
Dayna Stern

"This interesting and strange dog hike should be done during the cool season when trails in northern Utah are still under snow. Stansbury is the second-largest island in the Great Salt Lake. It’s named after Captain Howard Stansbury of the U.S. Corps of Topographical Engineers, who charted the area in the 1840s. Stansbury Island gets an average of only six inches of rain per year. An arid and exotic desert hike requires plenty of water for you and your dog. The hike is best done on a breezy day to keep the bugs away, so bring bug spray on warm, calm days. It’s a popular mountain biking destination." Read more
