My favorite trail in Davis County. Be forewarned, it deserves its “Hard” ranking. Also, I have seen plenty of rattlesnakes so watch your dog very closely.

This trail is really close to home so I use it a lot. It's great! You get a good leg workout on the steep parts and then a little bit of leisure when it evens out. I love it!

Great trail, locals and routine hikers know of an abandoned mine shaft to explore off the trail

I love this trail for a good run! Beautiful views along the mountainside. I couldn’t see a whole lot due to the fires. But this would be a perfect trail when it is clear and when the sun is setting.

Great quick hike. I would enjoy this a lot more on a mountain bike. Restroom at the start.

Edit: Walked this again last night for a quick hike and I came within 4 ft of a rattlesnake. He saw me before I saw him on the trail Bamberger(sp?), which I assume is the main trail. Just something to keep your eyes out for.

Great trail. Amazing views, but hard. The switchbacks near the top are overgrown, so the tail goes straight up.

I did a trail run from the parking lot of Bair Canyon to the radio towers. It was just over 4miles (by my garmin watch) to the top of the canyon and another .75 -1 mile to the towers once on top. After about 1.5-2 miles up (past the 2nd creek crossing) this trail gets very steep and doesn’t let up. The brush grows over the trail a good portion until you are above the tree line. Gorgeous once you are on top, especially early in the morning. There are maybe 3 or 4 spots for a single tent the whole way up. I saw two or three fire pits.

This trail is family friendly up to the 1st creek crossing and difficult for anyone after the 2nd.

It was about 5,000 vertical feet of gain in 5miles to the radio towers. It took me 3 hrs from top to bottom and 32oz of water wasn’t enough for 7a-10a.

Great workout. Would definitely do it again.

This hike is a great workout for sure. Its shaded most of the way, so that's nice if you want to stay out of the sun. Trailhead parking is limited (and a little hard to find) so make sure to come early.

Great trail; difficult at sections. Carried a backpack; camped and enjoyed the trail.

Great beginner's trail. After a month of healing from surgery, this is exactly what I needed to enjoy the scenery and build my energy reserves without over-exertion.

Not fun for kids or dogs.....

Tough hike, but lots of shade and water.

Awesome hike all the way to the top. Great scenery and beautiful views. Watch out for snakes 05/21/18

lots of fun. zero shade. plan for breaks

Great local trail but also a favorite for hikers so early morning is the best time to avoid the crowds

Lots of trail options. A simple walk to a moderate hike or more if you take the trail to head up to the BST. We will be back next week as everything was just about to bloom. Should be amazing.

There is no shade and it’s pretty dusty... it’s ok. You just kind of look down at Farmington the whole time, the summit doesn’t afford an extra spectacular view. The plaque being all the way up there is pretty interesting though.

I absolutely love this trail it is one of my favorites, but it is really hard but totally worth it!

We winter-hiked this trail over to the merge with Adam’s Canyon trail. We wore spikes & needed them in some places. It was a nice 4 miles (we took an “alternate” route on the way in haha) on a nice winter day, but the nearby gun range made the hike not all that pleasant. Don’t take skittish dogs on this one. I’ll bypass this one & stick to Weber County or farther south.

Great trail!! Beautiful views for miles!! ❤️

It was a pretty area to hike. Steep hike, definitely rated correctly. Had open/sun-exposed areas but had tree canopied areas too. It was nice to hear the river/creek along the way.

went past the 3-mile mark about 4 miles the trail started getting Rocky and steeper then I was prepared for.Good hike. The rating is pretty accurate or difficulty higher on the trail.

Beautiful scenery. Well defined trail. Well shaded. There were some steep drop offs and inclines so I was glad I had my poles. Well placed boulders or bridge made it easy to cross stream. I'd say it was really only "hard" after 2.5 mile

All trails has the name of this trail wrong. It is Bair Canyon. Named after John Bair who established the first lumber mill in Davis County at the mouth of this canyon.

Nice and shady thur half of the trail and there were a couple of hard spots. The second half of the trail you
are out in the open and still easy untill the last hill and it is very hard up and down getting to the road on top.

Not a bad little hike to take the kiddos on. Very easy and linear. I rated a two because what I look for in a hike is an escape from the city and you can still here the cars and hear the noises of people's back yards. Very clean and well maintained though. Great for a quick trail run just to stay in shape.

Beautiful hike located conveniently close to home. Dog friendly and river running through completes it. No car noises or city sounds, good place to escape.

Snow covered the steep trail at 3 miles in so we couldn't get to the summit. Some good news, though, we didn't see any rattlesnakes! Also, this is actually 8.4 miles roundtrip unless you have a 4x4 to get to the trailhead marked on AllTrails. Otherwise plan on parking at the golfball radar towers at Francis Peak.
