Beautiful, secluded trail! It's completely shaded and runs along a creek, which you cross multiple times. It's a little overgrown, but that's part of the fun!!! I did step right next to a rattlesnake while crossing the stream, so take caution!

Really beautiful and nice little hangout spots. Trail gets really thick this time I got to were the app said the trail ends and turned around because I forgot my machete but the trail really end about another mile or so were the creek begins.
PS 1 mile in there is a little pool and waterfall to cool off

I did this hike by myself and for starters I would say it was harder than moderate... I’m a distance runner so I would say I am in pretty good shape and this hike kicked my ass! Very very steep and there’s hardly any shade so it was sooo hot. I didn’t have a lot of water left and I was dehydrated and I was alone so I didn’t make it to the top because I was nervous about fainting so I turned around after 2 miles. Pretty hike and very challenging. Would like to do it in colder weather for sure. If you’re looking for a challenge this is a great hike to do. When you turn off the indian trail pay attention bc I missed it but thanks to this app I found it quickly.

I wouldn't do this trail again.

We are in pretty great shape, but my wife wanted to turn back with about 2 miles left because we didn't know if we'd have a better route back down.

I liked how hard the trail was and could have completed, but this trail had a lot of challenges midway through that were not our favorite:

- The swarms of wasps was disconcerting and too frequent for our liking. It made it difficult to enjoy the light stream at all.
- The first overgrowth section was about a mile of swatting bushes out of your face.
- The second overgrowth was several miles in and it was low shrubbery that tore up your legs.
- The scenery and "wildflowers" were pretty blah.

If you're going for a challenging hike, enjoy overlooks, and are well equipped for the rough terrain, and don't mind a lot of overgrowth on your hike, enjoy!

*We hiked just under 10 miles total of this trail according to Google Fit.

Great trail for an out and back!

My husband and I and our friend Erin completed this hike on July 28.

We started the hike at about 12:30, and made it down around 3:30 (although we did jog part of the way down). It was a 100* day, and only 10% of the trail is shaded, so we were roasting. The trail is moderately inclined the entire way, with sections that are severely steep. We stopped probably 10 times on the way up.

The views at the top were great.... we're glad we made it! My only complaint for this hike is the directions. I've been on the Indian Trail multiple times and never noticed the turnoff for Hidden Valley.

Would definitely recommend this hike for anyone who is in good shape and ready to take on a serious climb.

Awesome trail, lots of shade. About a mile up it opens up a bit with a ton of ferns that guard the path tightly for half a mile or so. I would like to go all the up and take Malans down. Looks like 10 miles and 4800 ft up

This is a good trail and I would say fairly easy. The climbs are quite gradual both ways and makes for a nice easy hike. The first 1.5 miles aren't covered and can get quite hot in the summer, but if you start early you'll have shade the entire way to the valley. After that first 1.5 miles, you have quite a bit of cover from the trees. There's another break in the tree cover after you hit the parking lot and start the trail going down into the valley, but it does have some cover towards the end as well. I noticed that the All Trails app showed me as off course on the second half of the trail where the trail seems to parallel the road all the way to the end, but that's private property and there are no trespassing signs posted. If you just keep to the trail and disregard some of the recorded tracks, you'll be fine. It's well marked nearly the entire way. There were three dogs roaming the trail towards the end where there are some houses. One was quite large, but they were all friendly. But, if you're afraid of dogs, be aware that they seem like they're just some free-range dogs from one of the nearby houses that are probably there all the time. A couple more things - the trail is quite rocky for about the first 1.5 miles and then turns into a dirt trail afterward. The second half of the trail, after you cross the parking lot, is a bit overgrown for about a half mile, but it's still easy to follow.

Good hike for a family. Beautiful scenery and good for bikes as well. There were also restrooms along the way. However, the signs and path were confusing at times.

Went hiking here on 7-21-18. It was a horrible hiking experience. Despite someone yelling at my dog and myself for allowing a dog on this trail even though they’re allowed, the scenery was not pretty at all. I’m sure it’s beautiful in the spring and the fall but not so much now. The trails were confusing as well. The hike (or more like walk) itself was fun and my dog had fun. Probably will never do this hike again.

Love this hike! It’s probably in my top top 3 in Ogden ❤️ it’s definitely a steep climb but the climb is worth the view!

Fun family hike with mostly shade and some sun. Nice views and a great little break at a wild cherry tree.

Good if you want something easy for small children. Well shaded and short.

Love this hike, but we ran into a rattlesnake this morning (July 6) so we ended up turning around. It’s also possible it was a gopher snake. It was only 7:00am so we totally thought we were going early enough. Just be careful on the warm summer mornings.

Nice trail near Ogden, UT. Some parts are overgrown, but elevation climb is pretty good.

I took my 5 and 2 year old on this little hike and they loved it. We even did the loop a couple times. We have gone back and I’m sure we will again. Great for younger kids!

this was ok, fairly short but peaceful. there is an area that is iffy for smaller kids so I would hold tight to them.

I would say this hike is a bit more on the harder side of moderate.
There wasn’t much shade, so definitely wear sunscreen! We saw LOTS of lizards, butterflies, dragonflies and a couple of hawks.

Was very confusing, really narrow parts and areas that crossed through the golf course. We started on 26th street is where we were directed from here. Was nice and shaded most of it, but there is so many forks and splits we didn’t complete it.

This is a decent trail if you’re looking for something leisurely to do for a morning walk, but don’t hit this trail in search of a hike. It’s very shaded most of the way.

Took longer than expected but worth the views. Bring water and snacks. Snowpack made some parts a little challenging.

Really good day hike if you go 1.6 miles and back really beautiful green. Reminds me of a jungle. After 1.6 miles it raps around and fallows The top all the way to Mount Ogden. Warning not much water after 1.6 miles recommend boiling or filtration.

Hiked this trail this morning, June 20, 2018, from 22nd Street via the lower Indian Trail connector, to the cairns overlooking Taylor Canyon. There are two cairns, one a little larger than the other, to each of which I added my rock. Fun hike, slightly strenuous, some loose and steep spots, but enjoyable. Passed through a couple of small meadows filled with wildflowers and dragonflies. Duration: 2:22:06, distance: 5.03 miles, elevation gain: 2,111 ft.

Started at 22nd st trailhead to the other and back. Should have shuttled but only had one vehicle. Confusing part when past the emergency shelter, remember head left. Took 4 hours round trip.

Hiked Indian Trail this morning from 22nd Street to the trailhead in Ogden Canyon, then shuttled back to the start. Totally enjoyable, moderately challenging, great scenery. Will do this one again. Only problem was the dog owners who disregard the leash requirements. One of the members of our group had a dog, leashed, which was attacked by an unleashed dog from another group. Simply inexcusable on the part of the dog owner. Hiking time: 2:06:47, distance: 4.52 miles, elevation gain: 1,852 ft.

very nice easy hike. Lots of shade!

Amazing trail, very steep, but that's what we are looking for.
