Nice easy hike with lots of shade. Just be careful. We came across two 3 foot long rattle snakes. One was just off the trail and could have easily bitten me or my curious dog. Fortunately I had her on a leash and was able to pull her away. The other snake was right on the trail where it intersects the golf cart path.

The trail is good for a hike with kids. Shaded most of the way. The loop isn’t very scenic though. You pass a golf course and to loop back to the trailhead, you have to walk on streets and deal with car traffic. There is a sidewalk all the way, which is helpful. Not a favorite, but it was alright for a kid friendly trail.

HikingGreat!Rocky

This was a successful family hike. We started from the 36th street trailhead at 8:30 am on a Wednesday and did not feel that it was overly busy. The canyon sections were cool and shady and nice and having creeks alongside most of the way. The few places with water/mud on the trail were easily avoided. I took kids aged 9-15 and it took us about 2.5 hours including time at the falls. I agree with others that the last 1/3 is steep and rocky. My youngest took several spills on the way down, and I wouldn't have wanted younger kids with me but we did see groups with small kids and also dogs.

7/7/2020 I really liked this route to Waterfall canyon. Well marked and so beautiful. More of a forest setting & shady than 29th street. Less crowded. The waterfall is low flow right now but the mist feels nice.

Much better than the north side! Love this trail. Always gets the blood pumping, the waterfall is so worth it.

Great little family friendly hike. Just enough hills and straight sways for the youngest and the oldest kids to enjoy it and get some movement in. We enjoyed the beauty of the creeks and the nature and even had a deer spook my son from 3 feet away. I’m not sure who was more spooked actually. Haha. I also enjoyed the part of the loop walking back to the car meandering through the old neighborhoods and seeing the old houses! So much character and charm! We will definitely do it again. I do have to note that my 12 year old son got shocked when he went into the bathroom and found a homeless man in his sleeping bag at 7:30am. There was another one in the middle of the park. Before we got on the trail but there were enough other hikers on a Saturday I felt okay with continuing.

Liked it. Was a fun run. Hilly and narrow but a ton of variation to it

HikingNo shade

Pretty boring trail. Not much to see and not much to do. The trail does cross the creek a few times which provides some much needed relief from the heat. Most of the trail is unshaded though there are pockets of shade. Also, trail is marked as “Gibs Loop Trail.” It is not a loop. It is literally a dirt trail from one parking lot, around the golf course, and to another parking lot. We ended up walking the 3 city blocks from the end of the “trail” back to our parking lot of origin.

Good one! Terrain goes low/downhill while starting from 26th street...better save some energy for coming uphill on the way back. And also saw some kind of snake on the trail at around mid morning, so stay alert and watch out.

About .6 miles in you come to a bridge, turn right. You do cross the river a couple times going up and there is no “grand destination”. About 1.7 miles in (close to turnaround spot) there are some rocks on the south side of the river. You can see down the canyon overlooking part of downtown Ogden. The trail is very pretty.

This was a beautiful hike. It did have a lot of loose rock though. We always use this app to give us directions to the trail head, but the directions for this one were wrong. They don't take you to the park route. So we started where it took us at the top of 26th street (I believe). This route is very confusing with lots of ways to get off the trail. The 2nd leg you follow the fire break road and the 3rd part is the main hike. My smart watch said I did 60 FLIGHTS of stairs (just in rock form)! So it was intense, but a beautiful ending! Make sure you have lots of water and good shoes.

Much better way to hike to Ogden Falls rather than from the north. Way more shade and better views. Will certainly be back this way.

Great trail! I recommend using the canyon way. It is less crowded. A little longer. And a little harder since you have to walk through water and rocks for part of the time. Can be hard for small children if you go this way. Really beautiful. Definitely worth the trek!

Recommended to take this route to Waterfall Canyon, you avoid a lot of the crowds at the beginning, and it's prettier too. You get some good educational signs that can make a good nature walk for kids or the uninitiated. You're in the shade until you reach the Bonneville Shoreline trail, then it's sun until the next canyon, but this section is mostly flat and easy going. It's more uphill once you hit Waterfall Canyon, and you'll run into more people. But as long as you go earlier in the summer and especially Spring, the waterfall is gorgeous and provides ample room to rest and cool off.

6/11/20 So very green. Once the final marker on Strongs Trail is reached the real hike begins... great trail. Very overgrown.

We started at the 36th St. trailhead and it ended at the 29th St. trailhead. It intermingles with Gibbs Loop trail so we started back on that from 29th St. It is a nice combination of wooded coolness and open trail. There were some pretty wildflowers and a nice stream with a bench along the way as well as a good view of Ogden beyond the golf course. There were some hills but would recommend it as a family friendly hike.

A lot of people hiking this trail - pretty crowded. Quite an incline almost the entire way, but well worth it with an amazing waterfall at the end!

Really crowded. Get there early or late or it’s a line of people up and down the waterfall.

Beautiful trail, the waterfall is worth the climb. It is steep and a steady climb. The second half of the trail is shaded more and in trees. My teenage son has hiked this a few times with friends and really enjoys it. Up by the falls you can climb around on the rocks. Go slow and anyone can make it. We saw people with young children completing it. We will be bringing family here who come for a visit.
