We stopped at the rest area before the exit for the Flats and enjoyed an amazing view of this singular geological site. Take the 20-39 min minimum...so worth it.

Driving across Utah on I-80, you will cross the salt flats without any extra effort or planning on your part. Though the facilities are very basic and minimal, it's worth stopping at the rest stop near Wendover to look over the flats, or walk out...More

I was headed east on I-80, and pulling over at the rest area about 10 miles east of Wendover does not really afford the best view or walk-out experience. You have to be at the rest area on the I-80 west side. I managed to...More

There is a rest area that you can stop while coming from SLC. We were driving towards SLC when we visited and couldnt turn around to the rest area.
