Getting There

This is a rigorous hiking trail ascending the mountain. You will then be able to travel north or south to other canyons using the gravel Skyline Drive. The trail is left as pristine as possible for a natural hiking experience. Occasional markers are provided to keep you on course. Generally speaking, the upper part of the trail usually follows the top of the ridge. Stay on top and keep climbing.

Farmington Parks & Rec 720 W 100 N Farmington, UT 84025 (801) 451-0953

Access #1 - Reservoir Trailhead with Parking: The trailhead is 200 feet south of Davis Canyon on Little Valley Road, which is reached by traveling east up 500 South off 200 East and bending south with the road that becomes gravel. There is parking available by the reservoir just north of Davis Canyon. Park, then walk up the road about 200 feet. Look for a small draw on your left. The trail starts in a small, wooded glen to the east of the road. Access #2 - Triumph Trail Junction: Hike up the Triumph Trail (#34) a half mile to the first waterfall, then descend down to the creek and cross the bridge.

A relentless climb up a very pretty canyon. Trail fades away near the top, but navigation is easy over fairly open ground. Good choice for one seeking solitude and/or catharsis. I did this as part of a loop- up Davis and then over and down Steed. All pretty fun except for about a mile or so of seriously unpleasant bushwhacking on the middle part of Steed.

The Davis creek trail is excellent all the way up. It does kind of disappear near the top but if you still to the bar rock sections you should be fine. THE OLD NORTH TRAIL DOES NOT EXIST!! Do not use it!! I had the worst bush whacking experience of my life trying to get down on that “trail”. It eventually linked up with the Triumph trail but even that was over grown and the path was hard to follow. I got lost repeatedly and I was using the map on AllTrails. Stick to the Davis Creek trail. Bring twice as much water as you think you’ll need and food as well.

A very rewarding hike. not for the faint of heart. Trail difficult to follow above the split above the cattleman trail but doable.

This trail lives up to it's hard rating. It is very steep and climbs at 1,000 ft/mile. Once you get past waterfall number five any semblance of a the trail disappears. We just keep following the trail and just before getting to the road before the peak finally found a trail again.

First to Review

Beautiful views and a nice waterfall on the way up. However, I don’t know that I’d recommend this trail. The trail being basically unmaintained halfway up the ascent means you’re just trampling around through undergrowth most of the way — bad for the individual and the environment. I’d hope someone either works on maintaining it or removes it from the visible trails map if not.
