Parrish Creek Trail is the best route for climbing Bountiful Peak from the west. It was named after Samuel Parrish who settled along the creek in 1848. The route basically follows the ridge that is located between Parrish Canyon and Centerville Canyon. It starts by following the ridge overlooking Parrish Canyon and then goes around the ridge that overlooks Centerville Canyon. The foothill that is located above both canyons is known as Centerville Peak. The trail meets the Skyline Drive road below the ridge line. It then follows the road north to the summit of Bountiful Peak.

This trail is ....maybe better for hiking or trail running. There is little shade until you get further in, then there is some. Having said that, it gets beautiful once you get a few miles in....... great views of the valley.

This trail surprised me. We started out on the Centerville Peak trail and discovered that this trail continues past "Centerville" peak and continues up to the Skyline Drive Road. We ran out of time and didn't make it to the road but loved hiking on the ridge until we had to turn back.
