20.2 Farmington Upper Terrace Trail - Cliffhanger Section

Description: This section of the Farmington Upper Terrace Trail goes east instead of along the terrace. It swings around a large ravine on top of the cliffs before meeting with the Francis Peak Trail (#22.4).

Access Locations:
Access #1 - Cliffhanger Split-Off:
This trail branches off from the Farmington Upper Terrace Trail (#20.1) just as it reaches the highest point above Farmington Canyon. Go east along the terrace.

Access #2 - Francis Peak Trail Junction: Watch for this trail to split off to the west from the Francis Peak trail section #22.4 as it bends to the east and continues up to the ridge.

  • Enjoy a loop through a ravine high above Farmington Canyon.
  • Deer often hide in this large ravine.
  • Enjoy a great view from atop some tall cliffs.

Trail Surface and Status: This is a smooth trail, except for the steep descent toward Farmington Canyon. Be careful!
