You’ll Have An Eagle Eye’s View From This Utah Vantage Point

Sure, you’ve been to Antelope Island. But I bet you’ve never seen it like this. Most visitors don’t hike to Frary Peak – it’s a rigorous hike and it will take you hours to complete. Trust me. You’re going to want to make the effort.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Before you take this hike, take the following into account:

  • The hike has full sun exposure the entire length of the trail. Bring a hat and sunscreen.
  • Make sure you have plenty of water with you.
  • If your fitness level isn’t the best, take your time. The elevation change is significant.
  • April is one of the best months for this hike – the bugs can be horrific during the summer!
  • If you’re hiking in the summer, you might want mosquito netting, and you’ll definitely need bug spray (though it doesn’t always work on the insects here).
