One of the best things about Davis County is the expansive trail system. The trails offer a wide variety of outdoor experiences. From a casual stroll along the old DRGW rail trail or the Legacy parkway, to a strenuous wilderness trek along the Bonneville Shoreline, or up one of our many Wasatch Front canyon trails, the path is guaranteed to show you something that you didn't know was there. We encourage you to practice courtesy and common sense as you enjoy the trails.

This cache is placed in Ezra T. Clark Park. Its a secret urban gem in a location with a lot of history. Using this as your starting point you can head northeast up and around Lagoon to the mouth of Farmington Canyon, or you can go west along Farmington Creek and meet up with the DRGW rail trail and the Legacy trail.

The park’s namesake, Ezra Thompson Clark is one of Utah’s most notable pioneers and financier. He eventually settled in Farmington from Missouri.

This park area is also near the historic Bamberger Railroad line that served Lagoon in 1896. ‘The Bamberger’ Electric Railroad at its peak served Salt Lake City to Ogden until 1952. Owner Simon Bamberger had financial resources from his interests in coal and metal mines. To gain riders, he purchased a swampy area just north of Farmington, drained it and built the Lagoon Resort at a destination for travelers. Lagoon remains today as one of the largest resort parks in the West.

Special thanks to the City Parks for their permission and to bsmallee for archiving her cool cache in this location to allow us to place this one here.
