Baer Canyon - exploratory hike

  • Baer Canyon

    1800 East end of road, Fruit Heights, UT (map)

    41.011753 -111.907965

  • We will meet at the trail head
  • I have not been to Baer Canyon for many years.  I was going to explore the area for a future Meetup hike.  If anyone wants an informal Monday morning hike, you are welcome to explore with me.  I have my GPS so we won't get lost.  I was planning to hike the canyon and also figure out where the trail for the Fruit Height Upper Terrace connects with the Baer Canyon trail.  I want to determine if a future loop hike would be possible. 

    These trailhead directions were copied from Richard's hike:

    Directions: From the south: Take I-15 north. you will pass Bountiful, Centerville and at Farmington right in front of Lagoon, you will see the turn off to the right for highway 89. Take that through Farmington. Midway through Fruit heights, you will come to a light at Nichols road. Take a right (head east) on Nichols road and head to the top... see common instructions below.

    From the north: Come down highway 89. you will pass Hill Airforce base, Layton and enter Kaysville/Fruit Heights area. Get in the left lane and at the stop light at Nichols road, turn left (East) and head to the top.

    At the top is mountain road. Turn left and head to East Oaks Drive. If you make it to the Rock Loft, you went 1 block too far. Head east and take a left on 1800 East until the road ends. Parking is off to the right on a steep paved driveway. Lat[masked] Lon[masked]

    Changed the hike to Wednesday AM because of the weekend rain & muddy trail conditions.

      In under an hour from the start (heading straight up the mountain), we'll hit a lot of snow. We can turn around there. Anyone else can just go back to the vehicles but I want to explore the side trails that lead south. I'm trying to link up with other Farmington hikes.

      My schedule is too tight for this. It would have been an enjoyable adventure. Have fun!

    Thanks for the information. Sounds like I won't be able to go far up the canyon. However, I would still like to see if I can figure out some trail connections heading south to the Fruit Heights Upper Terrace - which is still relatively low in elevation

    I was geocaching near the BST above Bountiful on Tuesday (4/1/14 -no fooling) and encountered more mud and snow than I cared to deal with. I fear this hike would be also. I did the Baer Gutsman nine times - many years ago and would like to return, but maybe sometime later in the spring.
