Trail Overview

Take this route from the Golden Spike Auto Tour Trail, and it will lead you to the Spiral Jetty. Not much of a challenge, but a great afternoon cruise with some great views of the surrounding mountains and the Great Salt Lake. There is a visitor center on the way, but this is a remote trail. Cell Service is nearly none, and there are no services around so come prepared!
