Hike and Mountain Bike

The shady Gailey Trail at Nicholls Park (also known as Bair Creek or Nicholls Hollow) is perfect for walking, running, and enjoying the fresh air of nature all four seasons of the year. The nature trail has a nice tree cover overhead to keep you cool in the summer and is mostly dirt and bark. The trails trees leaves are incredible to admire in the autumn and transform into a magnificently snowy wonderland in the winter months as the white treetops are covered. While dogs are allowed along the trail, they must be on a leash. Trail map boards and benches are located along the way. There are small bridges to walk over streams throughout the trail. The trail is not difficult but there are multiple entrances to the Gailey trail and some are easier access than others. The parking lot closest to Main Street in Kaysville provides the least steep hill to access the trail whereas the entrance near the Nicholls playground and pavilions is quite steep. The trail is located below Castle Park of Fruit Heights City, known for its bright red castle tops, bark, swings and large grassy areas with a spectacular view of the mountains.
