Trail Overview

This is a well-maintained packed dirt and gravel road which takes you to the Old Ward Canyon camping and target practice site. The route starts at the Skyline Drive trailhead below the bountiful "B" on the hillside. There are several pull-offs along the way which give great views of Salt Lake and Antelope Island, especially during sunset. In the Winter/Spring, there is a gate past this parking lot that is closed to vehicles.
