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

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.

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.

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.

Was limited on time so was only able to go in about 2 miles. But, this is a beautiful trail. Mostly covered and shaded. Could hear the creek the whole time. Gets steep in sections but not terrible. Looking forward to coming back to finish it.

Took my 7 and 4 year olds for a sunset hike while visiting Grandma. Only 5 minutes from home. Not sure which trail is the actual east mountain trail but we walked on A trail. Saw numerous signs with arrows pointing different ways. Since I didn't know the way and the trail is pretty close to town, I just let the boys take turns picking which path we'd follow. That worked great and the boys liked it. We followed trails labeled Upper Crest, Connection, Graveyard, and Bamberger. Again, not sure which trail we were supposed to follow but I wasn't too worried about getting lost. After a bit, I started strategically picking which way to go at the forks and we ended up back at the parking lot. Clocked 1.6 miles. The trail is pretty level in most places, couple of short steep sections. Some exposed areas and some really heavy overgrowth "tunnels" that the boys liked. Overall, pretty good. We'll go back and try different directions or maybe find the real path.

Fun hike! Lots of variety along the way. Definitely gets steep in a few spots. Amazing views from the top!

Great 360 degree views for pretty much the entire hike but rattlesnakes everywhere! My group saw a dozen. It was very hot with little shade and the snakes seemed to agree because most of the ones we saw were at the edge of the remaining snow. We even saw a couple venture out onto the snow itself which was a first for all of us. Don't be deceived by the elevation of the trailhead in relation to Thurston Peak, the elevation change racks up quickly as you make your way up and down all of the peaks. Bring a lot of water and reapply sunscreen often.

Such an amazing view, however, the hike was a struggle primarily due to number the rattlesnakes my friends and I encountered. There were approximately a dozen scattered throughout the trip. Although it's dog friendly, I would think twice (or maybe more) about it. If you do decide to hike Thurston Peak, please be careful!

This trail gets pretty steep and sometimes narrow so the way back downhill was a little technical but overall great trail. I'd recommend starting early because I started at 1pm and it was HOT.

As of 6/10, the trail to the top of Francis Peak (The very last push up to the ridge) is still kinda sketchy unless you have the proper gear to deal with it (a la microspikes/ice axe). If you plan on getting to the summit, bring it with you. The snow was still hard enough to where those things would be effective. This hike is rough, but it gets so cool the further up you go.

I agree that it's a "great little Little trail" but I disagree about it being marked. I had to retrace my steps several times to get back on the trail. Thank goodness I could follow my steps on the map.

Great Family Hike and kid friendly. We stopped at the bridge and played in the water. It was a perfect short hike for anyone wishing to hike with a few kids.

Lower section to the bottom bridge great kid hike. I would not take them any higher water still flowing high at all crossings. Beautiful hike though

Great hike with low pressure! Get past the river crossings and your good to go. Creek is flowing hard! At mile 2.5 the climb gets intense! Difficult for sure. Still some large snow drifts towards the top that make it tough to go all the way! Downhill is painful on the knees.. give it a go! Definitely worth a shot! Beautiful view the entire way!

Pretty easy leisurely hike.

Some sketchy parts after the first bridge, but my stubborn butt completed it while it was raining. Will do again!!!

I took my 3 boys (9-12) up this trail to the third creek crossing. That crossing looked a little sketchy - almost sure to get feet wet above the ankle (and the water was moving swiftly) so we opted to head back at that point. It was a soundly challenging hike. Some sections past the first bridge were significantly eroded, and it made for tenuous passage for shorter legs.
The traffic was minimal. We only saw one other couple down lower. Maybe it being Easter Sunday had something to do with it.

We didn't see any critters, and the bugs were minimal. The sound of the creek was ever present and the newly leafing trees were delightful.

I am definitely looking forward to tackling the whole thing by the end of this summer.
