  • 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 le...  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 woul...  more »
  • Over the years, it has become easier and easier to venture out to see Robert Smithson's 1970 land art work called Spiral Jetty. Now it shows up on most devices which should not take away from taking t...  more »

  • This is an interesting place to see.... once. I would definitely suggest going close to sunset and watch the color display! Driving in, we saw a couple of cars driving out and when we got there, there was 1 guy there taking pictures but he left right before sunset and missed the best part! It was gorgeous! but the drive out to spiral jetty is pretty far out of the way of anything (180 mile round trip from Centerville). It's a long, boring ride out. But the Jetty is definitely worth a 1 time visit.... at sunset.
  • Very neat place, spent hours walking around the place. There is natural crude oil spilling from the earth here. Lots of neat things to see. The Jetty itself is not in the water put still a sight to see. Lots of birds and the water was a neat pink color. I'll go back to explore more ! Even my daughter loved hiking around to see different things!
  • Even with the rain on this visit the Jetty was just as beautiful as ever. We visit the Spiral several times a year for hiking, picnicking, and meditation. There is a dirt road you must navigate to reach the parking lot. Bring bug spray and water to totally enjoy your time spent. Come back often, each visit the scenery looks magically different.
  • Fun little day trip. The road is grated very well and so we were able to drive our van on it without a problem. Brought picnic lunch, since we knew there is nothing for miles to eat or drink. Also made sure we had plenty of gas for the same reason. Will go back soon.
  • One of the most amazing places I visited in Utah. Smithon’s Spiral Jetty is impressive. But not nearly as memorable as the Great Salt Lake! Visit after a windstorm to witness piles of foam that are out of this world.
