The Golden Spike Buffalo Range is adjacent to the Golden Spike National Historic
Site (GSNHS) in Promontory, Utah. The range can be reached from either I-15 North
of Ogden, Utah, or I-84 West of Tremonton, Utah.
To get to the Golden Spike Buffalo Range, from I-15 take Exit 365, State Road 83,
west to Corinne, then follow the signs to ATK (used to be Thiokol) and the Golden
Spike National Historic Site. From I-84 take Exit 24, south to Howell Valley and follow
the signs to ATK and the GSNHS. Once at the GSNHS turn left on the first gravel
service road past the railroad tracks with the “Authorized Vehicles Only” sign. Turn right up the gravel driveway to the rangers’ house, then turn left just past the embankment surrounding the locomotive storage area. Go through the gate and follow the road to the right. Pass through the gate in the next fence and immediately turn left up the trail to the firing line at the top of the first small ridge.
The first map shows how to get to the area of the Golden Spike National Historic Site (green arrow) from the I-15 freeway. Once you are near the historic site, use the second map for detailed directions on where to turn into the service road and get to the firing line.
