Centerville Peak rises 2500 feet above the town of Centerville in Davis County. One of the major advantage of hiking in the foot hills 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 was one of the nicest trails I have found smooth enough for hiking or biking. Several switch backs allows 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.

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.

Great hike. Still snow starting about a third of a mile from the top.

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.
