This paved trail around the 21st Street Pond has something for everyone. There are plenty of places for fishing, and you can often see ducks, turtles, and all sorts of birds. It also borders the Ogden River for some extra scenic variety. It is also a popular ice fishing spot during the winter. The natural looking 21st Street Pond was actually created when water from the river filled a borrow pit used for local freeway construction. The trail that circles the pond now connects with the Ogden River Parkway to the east and the West Haven Trail to the west. Fishing Regulations: 21st Street Pond falls under the community pond fishing regulations of Utah. The daily limit is 2 fish. Anglers are encouraged to voluntarily release all Largemouth Bass. Waters are open to fishing only when the community parks are open to the public. 21st Street Pond is leased to a Ogden wakeboarding company that uses the water to test equipment. The public is not allowed to swim, or boat on the pond. Please respect all private property signs and pack out all your garbage.

Paved trail that is easily accessed for a quick walk, run, or bike ride. This loop links with the Weber Parkway trail system providing miles of outdoor access.

This was an easy trail to follow and I love that you can choose to go around the pond or follow the river, definitely a short walk so it would be easy for kids

A perfect short walk if you are in Ogden. Lots of drifters around though.

Horrible trail. Tons of trash and this creepy feeling like people are watching you. Saw someone who just finished bathing in the river. You can tell a lot of people live in the foliage.

Very easy trail around a pond in Ogden. Hardly any elevation at all. Saw two homeless people, but they didn't pay any attention to me. Great for dogs… Especially if your dogs like ducks!

This is a fun little pond to get a good walk in or ride your bike. There are a couple different trail splits you can take in this area. It is worth the time to try them all.

Have visited this trail many times and walked, fished, rode, hiked over the years. This is a fun place right in the middle of Ogden that you can bring the family for a fishing trip or picnic. The trail can get a little busy over the weekends and fishing pressure can be high at times.

This pond has some fantastic views in all directions. I came here with my daughter today to have her shake out her winter legs and ride her bike. On the way, we saw plenty of flowers, dozens of ducks, five turtles, and one duck tucked away into her nest. She told her brother and sister about it, so we ended up coming back and seeing it all again with the other kids. Stick to official trails or the short offshoots to the river - there is a lot of campsites for the homeless in the woods, which should be respected and left alone.
