The Ogden River Parkway is a spectacular 4.4 mile trip through nature in the heart of downtown Ogden. It begins near Rainbow Gardens at the mouth of Ogden Canyon, and ends just west of 21st Street Pond. It connects with both the Weber River Parkway (Ogden) and the West Haven Trail near its west end. Trail is excellent for biking and walking. With numerous points of river access, it is also a popular place for bird watchers and nature lovers. This section of the river is full of rapids, so be careful if getting close to the water.
I love the parkway
Very fun trail , we biked it in about 4 hours
Starting at Rainbow Gardens ending near Weber Canyon on I-84 .
Up and back 22 miles
One of the best times I'v ever had riding a bike
Good trail for a run, walk or for biking. Super easy. There are always a lot of people on the trail, and many people off the trail. I'm not too fond of the trail in the dark because there are so many transients next to it at night. But it is a great trail during the day and you can get on at several locations around Ogden. I use this trail very often from spring to fall.
Okay, fairly level, lots of people even for a weekday.
This is an extremely relaxing trail, which is paved in its entirety. There was quite a bit of bike traffic while we were there
Trail was nice! Paved surface throughout! Nice people saying high and smiling! Dogs on leashes!
Great trail for walking, running, skating and biking. This trail can get heavy use at times so if you are biking keep an eye out for walkers and runners. This trail spans from the mouth of the canyon west past I-15 and ever turns south and runs clear to Riverdale. Fun trail for the whole family.
Great trail for biking if you can beat the crowds. Rode it from rainbow gardens then merged with the weber river parkway trail down to West Haven. It can get pretty busy once its warm enough for the crowds to come out.
Great for hiking, biking, running, or a nice walk.
Ogden River Parkway provides a great easy family hike or bike. This trail is paved and crosses a handful of parks so the kids will love it. Take bathing suites with you, as there are a couple of great swimming holes along the way. We have nicknamed one of our favorites "the Zoom Floom" which is located right off of the parkway trail, very near the Walmart just past "Wall Street". Stop in for lunch at the Slack Water. They have good pizza and sandwiches, and an awesome beer selection. You can sit right on the river and park you bike next to the tables.
Picturesque biking / walking trail that is paved until it meets with the Weber River trail which is also paved. The Ogden trail runs along the Ogden river and has some hills and changing landscape that makes it a lot of fun for us when we want some quick cardio without having to drive too far.
Easy paved trail by the Eccles Dinosaur Park. Very pretty during the fall time.
I'd say the best way to enjoy the Ogden River Parkway is on a cruiser bike with kids. It's flat, pretty, goes through a variety of scenery (and behind the dinorsaur park), and can connect to a variety of other trails. It makes for a nice stroll too. Too busy for real road biking though, which is a pity given the beautiful paved surface.
Easy stroll on a paved trail along the river. Several parks and picnic areas along the way. Trail is pretty level the entire length. Great for a leisurely stroll or a jog. This would be a great trail for someone just beginning hiking or looking to loose some weight, very easy.
