First Day Hike
Hike with the Park Naturalist to Beacon Knob. We will meet at the Gravel Pit trailhead and start hiking at 10:00 am. Learn about the history of the old beacon that used to be on Antelope Island. We will also talk about the wildlife on the Island. The hike will be approximately 2.5 miles one way, 5 miles round trip, with moderate elevation gain. This is considered a moderate to easy hike. We will be serving hot chocolate at the top. Dogs are welcome on a leash.
Directions to the trailhead: Once you are across the causeway stay left at the “Y”. Then make the first left on to the Ranch Road. Drive about 1.5 miles then turn right onto a dirt road, you will see the trailhead sign in front of you. There will be a sign for the hike at the dirt road turn off.
