HIKING FRARY PEAK AT ANTELOPE ISLAND
October 2003 - 15 photos
Friday the 17th of October, 2003, our hiking group hiked up to Frary Peak which is the highest peak on Antelope Island. Frary Peak was named after George Frary who homesteaded on the Island from 1890 to 1897. The peak is 6,596 feet above sea level. From the trail parking lot to the top is about 3¼ miles one way and climbs 2,100 feet. GORP lists this hike as Strenuous and the trail is fairly steep in places, especially near the top. The trailhead sign warns, "This is a strenuous hike with difficult terrain, recommended for experienced hikers only". Still, the view from the top is fantastic and worth the hard climb. You can see the Wasatch Mountain chain from the Utah/Idaho border to Provo. From this point high in the middle of the island you can view all of the Great Salt Lake.
Besides the Buffalo, We were fortunate enough to see a deer and many Big Horn Mountain Sheep, but they were so far away it was hard to get good photos.
