(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah park officials will be closing a couple of trails on Antelope Island to protect wildlife this spring.

The Frary Peak Trail on the island has been closed and will stay that way until May 23rd. The trail is closed to protect bighorn sheep, which have their lambs at this time of year.

Next, the Mountain View trail, from the north trailhead to the Frary Peak junction, will be closed from May 19th until June 6th. That's to protect pronghorn antelope, which will be having their fawns.

All other trails in the state park are open. Park hours are seven a-m until 9 p-m daily. Entrance fee is eight dollars per car.
