day hike: sentry peak

This Antelope Island hike circumnavigates a high point known as Sentry Peak on the islands' southern extremity. This 7 mile event will gain about 1,000 feet as we ascent the island's southeastern slope; we'll then loop around to the western flank and ultimately descend back down the eastern slope on our return. This hike provides marvelous vistas of the southern part of Antelope Island plus a wide arc of the Great Salt Lake and Wasatch Front. It is common to see wildlife to include buffalo on this hike. This late season adventure should avoid pesky micro fauna, but everyone should bring bug spray just in case; also, depending upon the weather micro spikes (or similar) traction devices or snowshoes might be appropriate. Meet Elliott (801-969-2846) at the Council Hall parking lot located across from the State Capitol building on 300 North at 8:00am, or at the east Antelope Island causeway parking lot at 8:45am, to carpool or caravan to the trailhead. Bring money as a fee is required to drive across the causeway to Antelope Island.
