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.

This is the perfect trail for kids! We had kids in age from 9 years to 18 months and they all loved it. There are two parts to this trail. The first part seems like it dead ends at a road, and is pretty short. If you head west down this road, the trail will pick back up on your right. You'll see the little Carousel sign showing where it picks back up. This second part takes you over a couple bridges, goes under a road and takes you all the way to the base of Farmington Canyon and to the little pond there. You can't park right by the trailhead as there are signs, but we parked at the Junior High down the street and that worked perfectly. Seeing the Lagoon animals was cool and sad since their cages are so small, but the kids loved it.

Only downside was that the trees were blowing cotton (or whatever it is) EVERYWHERE! So much that the kids could pick it up and shape it into cottony snowballs.

We parked at Farmington Pond and walked to the Lagoon Campground. The trail gets split, markers are pretty good. At one point you cross a dead end road to get to the Lagoon Trail. It was a bit confusing at first, would be helpful if they had signs. LOTS of shade! Nice stroll! Be aware family photographers are out - especially in the evening for prime lighting. Other than not enough signs at times, we loved it! It was fun seeing the elk and buffalo in the theme park as well as we walked by.

I would recommend starting at Farmington pond and making your way back toward lagoon. There are more parking options at the pond. Enjoy some time playing in the stream at the pond on a hot day!

We like to ride our bikes on this one as a family. Even our little kiddos can ride on their own because it's a nice, paved trail.

This is always an enjoyable trail. Very easy and mostly shady. Sometimes you get the screams of people at Lagoon as background noise. Also look for the birdhouses hanging in trees.

This is a beautiful, easy trail. Something the whole family can do. It's well shaded year round. Buffalo and elk from Lagoon are visible. A pond at one end and lots of beautiful bridges. We have done family pictures here before. It's more of a Sunday stroll, not a Saturday hike. It's fun.
