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.

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.
