Went out on Saturday, of Labor Day weekend. Drive took about 2 1/2 hours from Point of the mountain. Last 15 miles are on gravel road so takes a little time. Gravel road fine for cars.
Saw the Jetty and walked out past that to...More
The opportunity to visit one of the late Robert Smithson's earthworks should never be missed. Spiral Jetty is awe inspiring and completely magnificent. The decade long drought has left it exposed and accessible year-round. Walking down to it you will find lovely treasures and homages...More
The isolation and the peace and solitude are alone worth a Spiral Jetty visit. It took me 50 minutes of driving in a car on dirt roads (past the Golden Spike headquarters) to reach the end of the road and the Jetty. A lot of...More
I always wanted to see the Spiral Jetty. It was very dry so we could walk on and around it. The lake was way out and we waded a little but it's kind of nasty water. The drive out there was a little rough in...More
The Spiral Jetty is about a 2 hour drive from Salt Lake City. If you drive through Corinne, you will see Promontory Point and the National Parks monument commemorating the joining of the transcontinental railroad. That is a good stop for its own sake. Use...More

My wife and I drove around the Great Salt Lake, it took two days and was a lot of fun. We saw tons of the left overs of towns along the way from the original trans continental railway, before it went through the lake. We...More
This is unusual in a very cool and innovative way. An art installation in the middle of nowhere, sometimes underwater, sometimes not, on the northern Great Salt Lake. We loved seeing this in February -it was totally deserted and NOT underwater! You can walk it...More
If you are in Northern Utah, and ESPECIALLY if you are visiting Golden Spike Memorial, make an effort to go see the Spiral Jetty. It's only about 45 minutes to an hour away. It is best if the water level is just right, or sometimes...More
The Spiral Jetty’s beauty is really dependent on the weather conditions at the time. When I went, the lake was very low and much of it appeared like it was just made from large vehicle tracks. It would be very wise to check the water...More

An hour is about right. It depends how much walking around you want to do. We walked to the center, then walked further to the waters edge. It was very dry when we were there. We also climbed the hill behind the parking area... More
An hour is about right. It depends how much walking around you want to do. We walked to the center, then walked further to the waters edge. It was very dry when we were there. We also climbed the hill behind the parking area to get a view. The driving in and out is the time consuming part
