Frary Peak Trail is a 6.2 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Syracuse, UT that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from April until September.
Hike this trail and plan to be at the peak for sunset. Well worth it.
Don't do this on a 90+° day, you'll hate yourself. The incline is pretty unrelenting, especially the first and last half mile. Totally worth it, though. Views the entire way are stunning.
This hike is steep and 95% in the sun, best to start early in the morning. Make sure to bring bug spray, sunscreen, and plenty of water. The views at the top are fantastic! We took the route to the right of the radio station at the top to avoid scrambling along the ridge (adds another mile or so each way). We did the hike in about 2.5 hours up and took plenty of quick breaks along the way.
We hiked this in the afternoon early in the summer. It had just rained the day before so there were a lot of gnats. The hike was amazing though and the view was phenomenal you could see all of the Great Salt Lake and Salt Lake City off in the distance.
It's a good hike if you are an experienced hiker. Make sure to have sunscreen and bug spray. After the 3 mile mark, it gets scary. The trail length is closer to 8.5 miles if you go right at the satellite tower. It took about 6-7 hours to complete as I am not fit.
This is a cool trail. From the top, you can literally see from Brigham City, to Wendover, to Lehi. However, I believe this trail is a little deceiving, as we logged 8.3 miles round trip.
This trail starts off pretty decent but at the end gets very steep. At the end after the towers there is an option to either go right (trail goes down then steep uphill till top) or go left (involves climbing on mountain ridge). We took a left (basically having to be on top of the ridge till the summit) it was definitely scary but a great adventure but please be careful if you take this left.
Offcourse at the end it was all worth it, great 360 degree view of the salt lake and the county.
When you reach the radio tower, stay to the right and follow the trail downhill. When you reach a fork in the trail after going downhill, STAY RIGHT AGAIN. We followed the left trail (it had cairns) that led to a very steep, honestly scary, use-all-four-limbs, why-didn't-I-bring-a-rope scramble to the summit. The trail to the right is also steep but much less so. None of the reviews we read mentioned this second fork in the trail.
Love this trail! First time today and it was great.
First off this trail is dog friendly. Its posted lots of places its not, but thats not true. I would also recommend most people follow the advice listed below about the last 0.25 mile. Go to the right and circle below and around the peak. I did that because I had a dog, but from the other reviews the climb on the ridge might be fun.
good. GPS said closer to 8-1/2 miles. rough section in last 3/4 of a mile
Great views. a lot of bugs. Couldn't stop or I was getting eaten up.
Great! Definitely doing it again.
