The trail used for the Bair Gutsman race that goes from the base of the mountains in Fruit Heights to Francis Peak. Steep climbs, great views, and a challenging race.

All trails has the name of this trail wrong. It is Bair Canyon. Named after John Bair who established the first lumber mill in Davis County at the mouth of this canyon.

Nice and shady thur half of the trail and there were a couple of hard spots. The second half of the trail you
are out in the open and still easy untill the last hill and it is very hard up and down getting to the road on top.

Beautiful hike located conveniently close to home. Dog friendly and river running through completes it. No car noises or city sounds, good place to escape.

Was limited on time so was only able to go in about 2 miles. But, this is a beautiful trail. Mostly covered and shaded. Could hear the creek the whole time. Gets steep in sections but not terrible. Looking forward to coming back to finish it.

This trail gets pretty steep and sometimes narrow so the way back downhill was a little technical but overall great trail. I'd recommend starting early because I started at 1pm and it was HOT.

As of 6/10, the trail to the top of Francis Peak (The very last push up to the ridge) is still kinda sketchy unless you have the proper gear to deal with it (a la microspikes/ice axe). If you plan on getting to the summit, bring it with you. The snow was still hard enough to where those things would be effective. This hike is rough, but it gets so cool the further up you go.

Great Family Hike and kid friendly. We stopped at the bridge and played in the water. It was a perfect short hike for anyone wishing to hike with a few kids.

Lower section to the bottom bridge great kid hike. I would not take them any higher water still flowing high at all crossings. Beautiful hike though

Great hike with low pressure! Get past the river crossings and your good to go. Creek is flowing hard! At mile 2.5 the climb gets intense! Difficult for sure. Still some large snow drifts towards the top that make it tough to go all the way! Downhill is painful on the knees.. give it a go! Definitely worth a shot! Beautiful view the entire way!
