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

While visiting friends in Salt Lake City, they asked if we'd be interested in driving out to Spiral Jetty - never been and had been looking for reason to go. Sure, why not? About an 1.5-2 hours drive from SLC, approx 16 miles past the...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

I agree you could make it--but it would be slow and a bit rough-going!
