Trail Overview

This route allows you to drive between Farmington Canyon and Bountiful Canyon. After hitting the gravel and gaining some elevation, there are beautiful views of the canyon. Along the route, you will also pass several pull-offs that provide an overlook of the city and the Great Salt Lake in the distance. Cautions to note are sharp, blind curves and loose gravel. Any vehicle can confidently drive this route as a high-clearance or 4WD vehicle is not needed. You come across mountain bikers and ATVs as well. It is a very easy road that follows the side of the mountain. It is closed in wintertime.
