If you have ever driven north on Interstate 15 in Davis County and looked atop the mountains to the east, you have undoubtedly noticed the round shaped radar components atop Francis Peak. This is a radar sight which provides weather data to the University of Utah and the National Weather Service.
It is a beautiful, yet sometimes nerve racking drive to get to Francis Peak, but the views once there are spectacular. I used to have a lot of pictures taken from up there, but they have become part of history in the moves that we have made. The peak its self is about 9500 feet above sea level.
In the vicinity of the radar site there is some great camping places and some wonderful hiking trails. In my opinion, a four wheel drive vehicle is needed to drive up there, the road is well traveled but it does get rough in many places. There are also several switch back turns. It is accessable from Skyline drive in Bountiful or the Farmington Canyon road in Farmington.
If you're in the area and have access to a four wheel drive or off road vehicle, this may be a great ride to take! Here is a shot of the radar site taken from Main Street in Kaysville.
