Centerville Peak rises 2500 feet above the town of Centerville in Davis County. One of the major advantage of hiking in the foothills of the northern Wasatch is virtually year around accessibility. Utah's extraordinary winter provides extreme snow fall in the higher mountains and mild winters on the lower western slopes. Depending on the snow conditions this trail can be hiked during much of the winter. The trail on Centerville peak is pleasant for hiking or biking. Several switch backs allow for a steady climb without being too steep. From the top of Centerville Peak the view of the Great Salt Lake is breathtaking. From the peak the trail continues all the way to Skyline Road.

This is a great trail for conditioning. Not the most scenic, but steady uphill. About 20% of the trial had snow, starting about 1.5 miles up. Traction was useful. This trail is extremely exposed to whatever the elements are on the day of the hike. When I went it was very windy!

Not sure why on earth this trail has 4 stars. Was tedious and very uninteresting.. probably one of my least favorite hikes of Wasatch front. Not sure why someone said there were ferns up here. Must’ve been describing a different trail and the trail itself goes on but the trail marker shows it ends in the middle of thick scrub oak LAME! Not surprising no other hikers were seen. Would’ve given it 1 star but I saw some cool birds and there was a good view of the valley Won’t do this one again

Decent hike with a moderate incline. 75% of the trail is pretty exposed to the sun, and there's no real ending. Started the hike 9am Sat, and I saw two people on the whole hike with me.

nice late season wild flowers up top. the chest high ferns are awesome. Surprisingly I only saw two other people on the hike but saw chuckers, turkeys and vultures. I think next year I'll do it again withe the family. I'll get someone to drop is off at the top and then enjoy the flowers and views on the way down.

Uncomfortably windy today, but extremely beautiful. The recorded track we followed seems to end at a weird place but still totally worth doing. Great switch backs and grade the whole way.

this trail can be much longer than 6 miles if you want it to be, not sure why its listed as 6 on the site. round trip is roughly ~15 miles

Good workout, excellent views. Great place to see very old mountain mahogany. Contrary to the description, winter travel can be quite difficult when trail crosses over to the north facing slope of Parrish Canyon at 5200' and 5700'.

I love this trail. Done it tons of times. the best is to do it in the evening, especially on July 4th so you can watch all the fireworks from above.

It's 3 miles to the peak box on a map but with all the dips and rises it's more. If you keep following the trail past there it gets majestic. Follows the spine of the mountain through big oak groves that block the sun to flowery meadows that bloom early spring. You can follow it through to skyline drive and hike all they way to Morgan if you want. Great if you don't follow the route on the description

This trail is very skinny most of the way and it's not very majestic at all.

One of my favorites. This is strenuous but well worth the view at sunset.

We hiked this one almost all the way up.... I think we missed the peak though and turned around. There were some snow and ice patches but mostly rock and dirt. It was fun!

Not too bad. Sun exposure for most of the hike. Its better in the early spring or fall( IMO). my favorite part is getting up on the peak to get another view of Deuel Creek to the South.

This is a great exercise close to home. The switch backs are a great workout but not too steep. Don't plan on any shade the entire hike is very exposed on the ridge line.
