From August 2017. Hiked trail with intention of photographing some rattlesnakes. Saw several within a half hour. They don't want to be bothered and will generally avoid you. Be careful, my buddy almost stepped on one. it didn't give classic "rattle" warning. Also saw some bull snakes as well.

My husband and I completed this hike on December 9 with our neighbor's dog, Scout.

This hike was a little tricky for us to find... we didn't realize there was a second parking area up a steep driveway. Once we got on the trail, it was pretty straightforward, although we did have to use navigation once more to find that path.

We loved this hike! A slight incline most of the way, with some steeper parts. The snow-covered tree branches were lovely, and as we got farther into the canyon, we loved the view of the snow-tipped evergreens. We were also able to glimpse some blue sky! So gorgeous!

This hike doesn't have a definitive end.... it actually keeps going for 5 or ten miles I think. We had to look on the app to see when this officially "ended," and turn around.

Overall perfect winter hike for us! Almost gave it five stars because Christian was excited to see the weather radar up on the peak.

Beautiful trail that goes up and up and up and up. I finally made it to the rocky observation point out of the woods and turned back there.

We just moved here, and we we looking for a nice trail near my home. This trail is perfect, dosent hurt its fall and the colors are spectacular! My dogs loved it too!

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

Nice easy hike for the whole family.

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 out and back. Saw a baby rattler near the start and got some good pictures and video.

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.

This was a great hike, gorgeous at sunset

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 hike for my little ones (7, 5, 2) with shade covering most the trail.

beautiful views and amazingly close to civilization without seeming to be.

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.

This is one of the best hikes around. It’s like a secret gem. Perfect for kids. My 3 year old loves it and it has a huge pay off! (Playing in the creek)

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.

Steady climb uphill when you start, but overall pretty easy! I had my 4 and 9 year olds and they loved it! The trail is actually very easy to follow, there are also a bunch of places people have had fires.

Hiked the entire trail. Great views of the valley and Great Salt Lake after you get up out of the canyon

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.
