Farmington: Farmington(Sunset) Trail spring 2019- To the Waterfall

June 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am Farmington Canyon Road


Difficulty:
Moderate/easy: 4.3 miles, 1264 feet elevation gain. 2 hours 15 minutes.
I hiked this trail on Tuesday May 28th. 2019 with the above results.
At the moment there are 2 waterfalls due to all the rain.
1 gate is closed on the road. So we will need to walk .8 miles up the road to the trail head.

Description:
This hike has a beautiful waterfall, several crashed cars and the remains of a cave too. You can use a rope and hike down to the bottom of the waterfall, and you only need to hike 2.3 miles in to see all this.

Normally this hike would be 1.5 miles out and back. However 1 of the gates is closed and that adds .8 miles up and back on to the hike.
We will cross a steam a few times on the way. There are 3 or more crashed cars on the way to see for fun and also a small waterfall by one of the stream crossings that I like.

The picture at the top of this write up taken along this trail is looking west and shows Antelope Island in the distance.

Below is a link to the May 21, 2017 hike. We had a lot of fun that day.

Directions: From I-15, take the Lagoon Drive/Farmington exit (#326 from the south or #327 from the north) and head East to U.S. Highway 106 (Farmington’s Main Street). On Main Street, drive south towards town. Turn east on 600 North then turn north on 100 East (Skyline drive) follow this road up Farmington canyon to the end of the pavement at 1.5 miles. The extensive directions below are because I got lost finding the unmarked trail head myself.

I have added the following information to help when on 100 East(Skyline drive) below. I did not realize Farmington Canyon starts near the intersection shown below.

You will reach a place on 100 East where you can turn left and head toward the pond, or STAY to the RIGHT and go up the canyon. At that intersection, there is also a sign pointing to the left saying PARKING. IGNORE the PARKING SIGN. DRIVE to the RIGHT at that intersection and head up the canyon. You will reach a closed gate with a dirt parking lot.
