This is a good trail for the kids to get out and run a bit. There isn't a lot of shade, but it's a nice place in the middle of town. It isn't usually crowded and you get to see wildlife in the park. There is an entrance fee. It's not my favorite spot because it's so easy, but if you don't want to drive very far and just want to get away for a bit, this is an okay place to come.
I think some type of guided tour of this area can introduce you to some of the most interesting locations. There are many trails all through the nature center, and little gems are at the end of each path if you can find your way to it. There are also great programs in the visitors center for kids and adults alike. It's a fun area to explore.
This is a great place to take an easy hike right in the middle of Ogden. ONC has an abundant amount of wildlife from , turkey's, waterfowl, deer, foxes, song birds and much much more.
