Golden Spike National Historic Site is located in a high desert environment on the north end of the Great Salt Lake. The lake and channeling of winds through the valley, where the site is located, can cause very unique weather conditions. The temperatures can reach over 100 degrees in the summer and into single digits in the winter. Winds can cause severe cold in the winter. Visitors are recommended to check forecasts before coming to our site and come prepared for changing weather conditions.
