The Prettiest, Easiest Hike | Silver Lake Loop Trail

I’m excited to share Silver Lake with you! Silver Lake is a place you have to know about! It’s the place we go to when we need to get out of the house and into nature but aren’t quite up for ditching the stroller and dragging the kids up a mountain. The Silver Lake trail might be the easiest hike you’ve ever been on. I can’t even bring myself to call it a hike, it’s more of a nature walk. BUT, it’s the prettiest nature walk you’ve ever been on.

In 1970, Robert Smithson used over six thousand tons of black basalt rocks to form a coil 1,500 feet long that winds from the northeastern shoreline of the Great Salt Lake and into the water. He name his work "Spiral Jetty". Its pretty awesome. We made the mistake of trying to tack this trip onto the end of an already adventure filled day, and our kids just didn't make it
