"The trail follows Farmington Creek, the largest stream or river in Davis County, up a broad canyon to a primitive U.S. Forest Service campground. A 40-foot waterfall near the top of the trail and expansive views make Farmington Canyon a rewarding destination, especially in spring and fall."
"This urban fishery, in the midst of the city of Farmington, gets a lot of pressure, especially in the evenings. Locals know the hatchery truck schedule for Farmington Pond well. As a result, the planted fish rarely last longer than three days. The city manages the fishery and does not allow ice fishing. Farmington City Reservoir is usually open to fishing April to December; the season varies depending on the weather. Key Species: Rainbow trout, bluegill, and channel catfish."
