1. Trucks Marker
Inscription.  

Eventually trucks replaced wagons as a more efficient and cost-effective mode of transportation and movement of supplies.

During low water years a sandbar was exposed on the Southeast end of the Island. Trucks could cross this natural land bridge.

In 1952, a causeway was built on this sandbar and used to transport animals and supplies until it washed out in 1983.
 
Erected by Utah State Parks.
