I love this trail. It is close to home and even though it's close to civilization, with all the scrub oak, you feel like your away from it all. It's fantastic for the kids who are just starting to hike or even if you need something to do with them. Kaysville Parks and Rec have taken down the exercise stations, but there are places for you to rest and lots of shade to bask in. My nine year old daughter loves it there as well as my Boarder Collie Buddy. It is perfect for mountain bikers, kids of all ages, and the trail runner. If you are looking for a wonderful out of the way place to get your exercise for the day, with out cars wizzing by, this place is perfect!!!! I give this place a nine out of 10 stars!!

We arrived at the trail head of this area and actually left immediately. The trail is right next to a rifle range and I did not feel inclined to take my family on a walk/hike salt and peppered with the sounds of rifle fire.

Two Starsâ€¦ Ok if you live in the neighborhood a just want a short walk. The trail was probably nice when the city first developed it but now it seems to be a bit rundown. Not much to see except a few rattlesnakes sunning themselves on the trail.

This trail was a little hard to find, and the scenery was so-so. The trail itself wasn't too bad. It was relatively short and not too hard to hike. It's ok to hike once, just to see what it's like, but I wouldn't be that inclined to do it again.

nice round trip exercise trail! some stations along the way that were built for different exercises, but not in good shape. good for biking and jogging! there are trails that break off and head towards adams canyon and back towards baer if you go up to the fire break road.
