Bonneville Salt Flats

Description:

30,000 acres of flat ancient salt beds, a remnant of the prehistoric sea, Lake Bonneville, which once covered a huge expanse of the Great Basin, and is now reduced to the Great Salt Lake. The Salt flats are legendary for their high speed raceway, which provides a perfect surface and size for the jet powered rocket racers which attain speeds of over 600 mph. Permits must be obtained for filming, racing, rocket shoots, archery, and any off-the-wall experimental use. Hiking and sightseeing are considered transient uses and do not require a permit. No improvements, no facilities beyond an interpretive sign. Bring water, sunscreen, first aid, and a car repair kit.

Directions:

3 miles east of Wendover, take exit #4 of exit #4 off I-80 and go 1 mile north then 3 miles east.
