The Indian trail loosely traces the old Shoshoni Indian path used in ancient times to get out of Ogden Canyon and onto the salt lake plain. The trail is heavily forested and, even though you are close to Ogden, has a wilderness feel to it. The trail is well maintained and cool even in the summer. The Indian Trail is a moderate hike that ascends through lush evergreen forest and past interesting geology. It climbs steeply into Ogden Canyon, winds in and out of Warm Water Canyon, climbs to "Nevada Viewpoint" on the ridge between Warm Water Canyon and Cold Water Canyon, and then descends to into Cold Water Canyon near the Cold Water Canyon Trailhead. You can hike it out and back, or arrange a shuttle and hike from Trailhead to Trailhead.
Fun, steep, shaded trail.
Starting at the smoky bear sign in Ogden canyon . There is a small parking area . Trail goes up a few switch backs crossing a couple of bridges , the trail forks left fork is the trail head to cold water canyon . Continue straight trail curves right continuing to climb up over a rocky ledge and threw the pine trees across a rock slide and arriving at the emergency shelter on top.
Turn around and head back or continue to the 22nd street parking lot .
Trail goes down but then heads straight up for about 1/4 mile trail dose some up and downs until you arrive at a very narrow trail around a large Boulder then down some narrow switchbacks continuing along the mountIn side , rounding the point looking into Ogden canyon , more switchbacks and emerging out looking into Ogden valley ..
This so far is my favorite hiking trail around Ogden . It's a beautiful hike & about 80% of the tail is shaded. There is also free spots up there for overnight tent camping.
its a workout and some nice people you meet there
awesome. very hard. really good workout. beautiful
the sights were amazing and the trail was a challenge but it was well worth.
Great trail, we connected by taking Coldwater Creek trail, which is a really good, slight incline!! The trail took us up top to a huge boulder! I was with my 3 and 7 yr old and the trail only got a little difficult for my 3 yr old. Lots of shade until you get closer to the top.
Challenging and beautiful. Abolutly stunning views of both Ogden and Ogden Canyon. We did the full trail and back which took about 4.5 hours. Totally worth it.
one of my favorite hikes in Weber county.
I've hiked Indian trail in the summer and fall, this was my first time in the winter. I started from the 22nd trailhead. The mountains and trees look beautiful covered in snow. Some girl commented saying its boring. It's no Lake Blanche, but definitely not boring. There's lots to see-you can get a good look at the canyon below and the mountain peaks on ahead. Lots of evergreen trees so at some points it's like being in a forest.
