    Phil Hunt reviewed Malan's Peak Trail

    about 2 years ago

    From 27th street TH to Malan's Peak is 2.4 miles one way. The trail is a 45 degree hike most of the way and there is a rocky ledge you need to scramble over for about 100 yards , there are 5 switch backs before coming out on top to Malan's peak . We continued on to Malians Basin a very easy hike down to a small bowl . There's a sign telling about the basin and if you look around you'll find an old steel steam engine pretty neat . 1.5 miles one way .
    If your really feeling great continue on following the creek bed the trail is very hard to follow , watch for small stacks of rock and Pink plastic streamers to show you the way . Bushwacking 101!!!
    The trail peters out and now your on your own to find your way up the 60 degree incline upward to Mt Ogden Peak . We ran out of day light .
    Shorts are great for the hike to the basin but long pants are suggested from there up .
    Rattle Snakes are still out Sept 30,2016

    Phil Hunt reviewed Malan's Basin Trail

    about 2 years ago

    We hiked from the parking area at 27th street TH. Hiked to Malan's peak 2.4 miles one way this hike is 45 degree climb in most areas there are a few flat areas to hike but mostly a hard climb , in one part of the trail your scrambling over jagged rocks for 100 yards . One on top Malan's Peak is on the right side . There were many hikers hiking to the peak , we continued a very easy hike to Malan's Basin 1.5 miles one way. We did not see any one hiking this trail but us . Then because the trail shows to keep going on (AllTrails ) we bushwhacked it about 1.5 miles .
    From the sign in the basin there are several fire pits areas . The start of the trail ( if you want to call it a trail ) starts next to the creek goes threw 2 camping areas and continues threw brush and bushes over dry river beds . Following the creek bed .
    There are stacks of rocks to show were the trail continues and pink ribbons or streamers showing where to go.. We hiked up until the trail petered out about 2 miles below Mt Ogden Peak. We ran out of day light .
    If your going to do this hike I would suggest starting 8:00 to 9:00 am .
    We hiked another 1.5 miles bushwacking it .
    From the sign in Malan's Basin up I would rate as Xtreme terrain very difficult .
    Also Rattle Snakes are still out Sept 30,2016
    Our total hike from the AllTrails AP showed we hiked a total of 12.4 miles out and back

    Very easy trail to hike , trail is in great condition I'd rate this trail as easy we hiked 3 miles in 1 hour 37 minutes to the over look , we continued up Sardine Trail 1 mile then handed back . There are a few benches to sit and rest .. Great trail for Horses, biking , hiking , running .. Or a good stroll.
    The views are Amazing , colors are popping right now .. One of my favorite hikes

    Phil Hunt reviewed Cold Water Canyon Trail

    about 2 years ago

    To get to cold water canyon drive up Ogden canyon to the Smoky Bear sign , parking lot is on the South side. Hike .8 miles up Indian Trail the Trail Head to Cold Water is the left fork.. Continue climbing upward the trail comes to a "T" turn left at the "T" to continue up cold water canyon .. Turning right at the T takes you to a few camping spots with fire pits . Soon you will arrive at the old Mill , there will be old steel parts left from the mill ( please leave them there)
    Turning left the trail continues to climb upward finally turning into a muddy drainage .. Continue threw this for about 69 ft back on a trail then going into a drainage wash . Continue scrambling up and over the rocks , logs & branches until reaching the top . Some bush whacking..
    Total mileage from parking lot to top of trail is 3 miles . Stunning views from up the drainage .
    Please pack out what you packed in ..
