mtn_pikaOne of my favorite hikes  Sucess!

Although the height of Frary peak pales in comparison to the nearby Wasatch mountains, this is one of my favorite hikes due to the beautiful scenery, wildlife and the variety of microenvironments Antelope Island offers. The hike is best in winter or early spring; worse than the heat, biting midges (aka "no-see-ums") make the trail very uncomfortable in summer and early fall. I've seen Buffalo, snakes, small lizards, tarantulas, rabbits, grouse, bumblebees, and many varieties of birds along this trail. The seemingly innocuous ridgeline to Frary peak will definitely give you an adrenaline rush, should you choose to take this route. I would also highly recommend the hike out to Elephant Head on an early spring morning.

Mostly sunny day with scattered thunderstorms. Noseeums were atrocious on the summit. Spotted some bison. A great way to spend half the day.

3 of us were stopped by a huge bull buffalo who took exception to us being on his mountain. We were about 1/4 of a mile from the top when this happened. He actually chased two of us back down the trail (I was almost run over by these two who were ahead of me as they were being chased by the bull) We snuck back up above the critter but he was watching our every move. Exciting but no pics as I had my camera in my day pack at the time this all happened. I'll finish Frary another day.

This was a surprisingly fun winter hike. We turned back about 300 yards past the radio tower because it was snowing pretty hard and the rocks were pretty slick. It was still fun to get out of the house though.

I live close to Antelope Island so I decided to take a hike while I was there. The trail is in good condition. Near the top the trail divides around the rocky summit. Bottom trail is easier but the ridge is fun scrambling. On a clear day you can see most of the Wasatch Range.

I hiked this the day after my grandfather passed away. It was an uneventful, slushy, easy going day. The trail was not marked well when it directed to the West instead of up the final ridge to the summit. I tried to place some rocks there for it.



Very quiet, the entire Salt Lake was mirror-still. A little bit of slippery mud/slush near the top, but steps and trees helped out in places.

Got a late start and there was a good bit of snow on the trail. The last bits were untouched (since the last snow). We post-holed up to the summit, scrambled the rocky ridge back to the saddle, and had to run back down to make the 5:00 PM trailhead deadline. Very fun.

Fun, quick hike. Minimal snow on top. Big horn sheep on top at the tower. No antelope any where to be seen and the buffalo have been herded up for the season. Plenty of bunny wabbits though.

I agree with Mr. Wasatch. This is a great early and late season hike. I've seen buffalo at the top of the ridge by the radio anttenas, so watch it!

Nice early season hike. Excellent views. Last part of trail was a little rougher than I'd expected, but enjoyable. Saw buffalo and pronghorn along the way.
