Getting to Spiral Jetty

Spiral Jetty is about 2.5 hours from Salt Lake City


1. From Salt Lake City take I-15 north approximately 65 miles to the Corinne exit (exit 365), just west of Brigham City, Utah. Exit and turn right onto Route 13 to Corinne. LAST GAS STATION is in Corinne.

2. Past Corinne, the road becomes Highway 83. Continue west for 17.7 miles. Follow signs to Golden Spike National Historic Site (GSNHS) Visitor Center.

3. Turn left onto Golden Spike Road and continue 7.7 miles up the east side of Promontory Pass to Golden Spike National Historic Site Visitor Center. LAST BATHROOMS are at the Visitor Center. LAST CELL RECEPTION.

4. From the Visitor Center, drive 5.6 miles west on the main gravel road to a fork in the road. Continue left, heading west. There are small white signs directing you the entire way to Spiral Jetty.

5. Cross a cattle guard. Call this cattle guard #1. Including this one, you cross four cattle guards before you reach Rozel Point and Spiral Jetty.

6. Drive 1.3 miles south to a second fork in the road. Turn right onto the southwest fork, and proceed 1.7 miles to cattle guard #2.

7. Continue southeast 1.2 miles to cattle guard #3.

8. Continue straight 2.8 miles south-southwest to cattle guard #4 and an iron-pipe gate.

9. Drive south for another 2.7 miles around the east side of Rozel Point. You will see the north arm of Great Salt Lake and an old oil jetty (not Spiral Jetty) left by old drilling explorations.

10. The road curves turning north and ends at a parking lot directly next to Spiral Jetty.
