Runner Notes

This is a spur trail, all singletrack, that takes you out from the main trail to the Elephant Head overlook.

Description

This is a spur trail off the Split Rock Loop Trail on Antelope Island. Generally added on to a run to take in the fantastic views of the Great Salt Lake and Split Rock bay. The trail is approximately 1.5 miles each direction, all singletrack, and generally easy. It does have a few climbs and descents, but not of any significance. It's worth the trip out to the overlook for the views.
