Summary: Centerville Peak rises 2500 feet above the town of Centerville in Davis County. One of the major advantage of hiking in the foot hills of the northern Wasatch is virtually year around accessibility. Utah’s extraordinary winter provides extreme snow fall in the higher mountains and mild winters on the lower western slopes. Depending on the snow conditions this trail can be hiked during much of the winter. The trail on Centerville peak was one of the nicest trails I have found smooth enough for hiking or biking. Several switch backs allows a steady climb without being too steep. From the top of Centerville peak the view of the Great salt lake is breathtaking. From the peak the trail continues all the way to skyline road.
Trailhead: From I 15 take The Centerville Parrish lane exit (exit 322). Follow Parrish lane East to the end of the pavement. Take the unimproved road to the left. After it curves around up the hill to the right you will see the trail head sign. (Lat:40.93473 Lon:-111.8813)

Another great Davis County hike! The switchbacks are not too steep, but once past the switchbacks there are some very steep sections up the ridgeline as you move towards Skyline drive. During the late summer months you will have to bushwhack through a 100 yd fern meadow that grows to about 6 ft tall - I felt like I was in Jurrasic Park waiting for the Velociraptors to surround me! Incredible views down both Centerville and Parrish Canyons. Once you reach the top there are some great rock outcroppings to sit on for a snack and great views down Centerville and Parrish canyons before you head back down.
