Great trail to take a dog on. I love being in the trees, shade and fall leaves.

Always a favorite of mine!

Good hike for kids. We took them during sunset and it was beautiful. Leaves are starting to change colors. Recommend this hike in the Fall.

Super mellow hike, barely any elevation gain at all. Lots of trees and shady areas. A good hike for those that just want to be in nature without all the huffing and puffing. I created a short video showcasing parts of this hike, both from the ground and from the air:

The Trailhead was difficult for me to find. I went on 2 wrong routes the first two attempts, but finally conquered Mt. Ogden on the 3rd! Beautiful Views!

gorgeous waterfall that pays off for the steep hike.

Nice trail but really confusing as to which way to go. We took our kids up (3 & 1) and it wasn’t too bad. We only went up about .75 of a mile though because my toddler got too tired. Definitely not a hike for toddlers.

Cons: Very rock, moderately steep, narrow trail that is overgrown in some locations. It is not very different from the dozen other trails in Weber and Davis that follow a creek up a canyon and end with no spectacular destination.

Pros: All of the cons make this a terrific trail for solitude. It is shaded and follows a stream the entire way. There are lots of rock outcroppings and cliffs that you can climb and provide an excellent view. We saw lots of butterflies and birds. There are a couple of small places one could camp.

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.

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

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

Pretty good workout. Went today 6/29 around noon with my sister and got caught between some rattlesnakes! One I went past but my sister saw, so with it being a pretty narrow trail and the snake being on the edge of the trail near the river, I went up and around the brush to go around it. Later we saw another one that was just too close, so we took a break to give it some time to get comfortable, then said a quick prayer and snuck past it as it slept. Nice hike!

Love this hike. I guess if you are a very mild hiker it is “hard”. It’s a workout but I would have rated it moderate.

Beautiful but lots of bikes. I almost got hit by one.

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.

My husband and I completed this hike with our neighbor's dog on June 12.

We started around 5pm, after my husband got off work. This trail was easy and pleasant. It's ether flat or slightly inclined most of the way, with a few river crossings. This trail also intersected with several other trails as well as the golf course... fortunately there are plenty of signs that keep you on the correct path.

When we got to the end parking lot, we just turned around and took the trail back. If you want, at that point, you can just take the street back and it would be less mileage.


It was fun to have the dog with us..... he enjoyed being our leader!

Would recommend this easy hike to anyone!

This is a great walk for little ones. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's not a true loop. if you start at the 29th Street trailhead just turn around when you get to the paved golf course.

This trail has been a staple in my family for more than 40 years. The yummiest way to treat the kids for their work and adventuring attitudes has always been "backpack" homemade icecream that they made in their backpacks, without any extra effort and enjoying the fruits of their hardwork at the top near the waterfall. We have always packed a small lunch as well just for extra incentive for the littles. the backpack icecream is amazing by the way. look up on google to check it out! 30 years later and our kids still remember the special treats THEY made themselves just by hiking and their backpacks naturally shaking the cream and ice. The hike itself is easy to moderate and generally takes no longer than a couple of hours. plenty of places to take a breather and fresh water to drench a bandana to cool yourself off if you get heated. Don't forget to bring your water though!

Good for the dogs. Can go to lots of areas off the main trail. Not much shade in summer. Great views but incline is meh.

We started Gibs Loop at 29th St and then followed the signs to Waterfall Canyon instead of going down around the west side of the golf course. We did not go all the way up to the Waterfall but it was an awesome hike. A lot of the trail was along the riverside and shaded. Really a beautiful hike. Going this way does take you in an actual loop right back down to 29th St.

Great trail. Although they refer to it as a loop, its not a loop. It ends in the parking lot and to finish the loop, you have to walk on the street.
Mount Ogden Park parking lot is very interesting meeting spot for people, loud music from the car, some people just sit in the car, smoke and hang out. There was nobody on the trail today, but the parking lot was full and loud.

Beautiful, secluded trail! There is an official end of trail sign near the wooden bridge....that’s not the end at all! Keep going! There are several good overlook spots, and all of the trail runs alongside the creek in the shade. Some parts of the trail are hard to find when it crosses the creek (five or six times total), so we scrambled through some brush and rocks before we found the trail again. The trail eventually just ends, with no real overlook or waterfall. Regardless, it’s a beautifully wooded and shaded hike. We only saw a few people near the “end of trail” beginning. Took us about 4 hours in and out from the Beus Drive trailhead, with a few breaks and time spent re-finding the trail.

The trail isn’t marked well and there wasn’t any signs or warnings saying that the snow basin trail, which is part of this loop, was snowed out. There was also a tree that had fallen it was difficult to climb over.

Beautiful trail!

This was a nice relaxing trail, beautiful scenery and mostly shaded. Don’t do the loop like as stated in previous posts, its just street walking. Turn around and go back.

Easy and beautiful trail. Can’t get lost. Lots of feeders. Do out and back. Loop sucks and is on concrete. We love the strong river bench you can chill at about 1.5 miles up. Great spot for refreshing or lunch. They have two tables. Fairly quiet. Go Sunday’s lol.

So we did this one 4/9 on a perfect Spring evening. The trail was nice and dry, had good views, winds through trees, passes over Strong Creek, and has some fun parks at the end (though the park is at the beginning if you follow the AllTrails directions). We started at the 29th Street trailhead and hiked to the park. Then my teenage girls watched my boys play there as I completed the loop back up to the trailhead to grab the van. It wouldn’t have been hard for the kids to walk up to the trailhead, but it is always nice to have a fun destination when hiking with kids. Also, its actual name is Gib’s Loop if you’re wanting to look it up on other sites.
