This is an easy, paved trail through tall trees and following the Farmington Creek. This nature trail has many species of native trees and brush together with sites of fenced Elk, Buffalo, Horses and Cattle. Note the signs identifying the tree species along the path. Other wildlife including geese, ducks, small birds and mammals may also be observed. Four picturesque bridges cross Farmington Creek as you meander through a serene trail in the heart of the city. Connecting access to the entire Farmington Creek Trail is available at the northerly and southerly termini of this trail.

Parking at the south end of the trail is very limited. Signs are up that say parking on the street is for homeowners on that street only. I recommend starting at the north end of the trail and there is a lot of parking by the pond. Most of the trail is shaded and you also see some elk and buffalo along the trail.

Great little stroll, lots of people with kiddos on scooters and bikes. I was super intrigued by the tree study that its going on down there. There are multiple Redwood and Sequoia trees that have been planted alongside the trail. It's also covered with wild blackberries and we saw a mulberry tree and mushrooms as well. Fun little nature walk.

Thankfully it was no major time commitment to drive to this little trail because it is so short! My kids enjoyed it for what it is, though, and its nice that 50% of it is shaded. This is a great place to bring a picnic lunch if your kids just want a short nature walk.

Good trail. Shaded. You have to park off lagoon dr.

It was very short we drove over 40 mins so it wasn’t worth it for us. But it was very nice and clean. You could hear the animals from the zoo.

Super easy, nice paved area. Great for little ones on bikes or scooters. Lots of shade and things to look at.

Really fun walk with kids. Saw animals, a pond, and beautiful greenery.

This is a good trail for young families. It’s paved and shaded, and there are benches and picnic tables along the trail.

Great quick paved trail. Part of the trail goes along Lagoon “zoo”, so you see bison and domestic Elk. Mostly shaded. Stream runs next to trail occasionally.

based on the map, the trail begins in an area where there is no parking. we parked a block away at a school. It was a really nice trail, paved the whole way. There was a spot when we had to ask for directions because we had to walk on a street to get to another part of the trail. Now is not the time to go if you have cotton allergies. There was cotton blowing from all the cottonwood trees. Some areas had it so bad the path was slippery to walk on. There are a few metal picnic tables on the sides of the trail but they had cotton all over them, plus with the cotton blowing around we ate our lunch in the car. There was plenty of traffic on this trail. The bridges & the tree chair are fun for kids. We will definitely do it again.

It was absolutely beautiful! Only reason for 4 stars, there were so many people. Glad we found this on AllTrails, it's an area we didn't know existed and we are very glad to have made memories walking on this pretty trail.

There was a lot of cotton flying. If you have an allergy to cotton, make sure to take your meds or skip it until the cotton stops flying.

Went all the way to the Farmington Big Foot and then turned around.

Highly trafficked but worth it. A few picnic tables along the way if you want to make it a lunch/dinner walk.

This is a pretty populated hike. It’s a very beautiful walk tho and the greenery is gorgeous. You pass behind Lagoon and can see some animals. This trail does lead to the Farmington Pond which is also very beautiful. A lot of memorial benches and picnic benches along the way to rest or enjoy the view. I would recommend this and do it again.

Great family trail and not too busy yet on Sunday morning.

Ok walk for being in city. Tons of people, and parents don't control their kids on bikes. My toddler almost got ran over multiple times. Good local walk but definitely wouldn't travel far to go.

A nice little walk but a lot of people with uncontrolled kids riding scooters and other things. maybe because it was sunday

Started out early morning. Pleasant stretch of pavement.

Such a fun and easy walk for families! The whole walk was stroller friendly and paved and it was mostly shaded. We love the hollowed our tree trunk, the chair made of a tree and the pond at the end!

Fun for families. I went with my niece and nephew who are sad that Lagoon hasn’t opened yet, so they were at least excited to see the back views of rides and some animals. They also enjoyed counting bird houses. We took a couple of sandwiches and there were picnic tables along the way.

Overall good trail for what is it. Decently paved and shaded. Not super clear markings of where to go but it’s easy to find your way. I took a baby in a stroller and did well. Lots of people on runs and walking with kids. Is worth mentioning the northern end does get a bit steep so it’s not super friendly for wheelchairs or the disabled. Goes past part of the lagoon zoo, which isn’t much to see, but the Farmington pond is nice to hang out at and feed and ducks and geese.

This is now my 2nd favorite local hiking spot! This is a paved trail, that has wide enough pathways that you can easily stay 6ft away from people during this quarantine. Its a great trail for small kids; we saw a few with scooters and bikes. You could also bring a stroller. It has a mild incline along the creek path as you approach the waterfall heading north, then it leads you up to a beautiful lake. We had to park down the road since these directions start you at the south end of the trail by lagoon, but there is actually designated parking if you start your hike at the lake and work your way south towards the back side of Lagoon. I like that you get to see Elk, buffalo, and the occasional squirrels along the way. Very peaceful and easy trail.

This took us to a place with a bunch of no parking signs so we had to google where to go. Trail was okay, mostly moms with strollers (like me). Pretty shady so that’s a plus from other paved trails in Farmington.
