Getting There

The lower part of the trail is easy as it climbs to the mouth of Beus Canyon, where it intersects the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. The trail continues along Beus Creek until it reaches a small meadow where the canyon forks. This meadow is locally known as Fern Valley, for obvious reasons. From there the trail continues along the south fork of the stream and then climbs the ridge between Beus Canyon and Birch Canyon to the south. The trail continues to climb at a steep pitch as it goes north to the head of Beus Creek. From there, follow rock cairns to the saddle just south of Mount Ogden Peak.

There is a parking area but no drinking water or restrooms.

The trailhead is located at the top of 4600 South, on the east side of Ogden. Follow the street east until the road curves south near the microwave towers. The trailhead is signed.

Lots of snow up there still after Bonneville junction. Trail follows the creek the whole way. Spikes recommended. Snow got soft towards afternoon, expect to post hole up to your knee a few times and be wary of the snow bridges over the creek. Once the trail cuts up the Canyon wall there are some narrow exposed sections that poles would make easier. Going to have to wait for the melt out to make it to the peak, bet this will be a gorgeous hike then.

We loved the challenge. Beautiful views, but makes sure to start at a decent time so you dont get caught in the dark. It will take you 6+ hours so dress/ prepare accordingly. Bring lots of water.

Absolutely gorgeous! But so windy and cold at the top and super unprepared for that. Worth the views!

Definitely a difficult trail. after a couple miles it gets really narrow and the branches rub against you with some of them being painful. Near the top gets cold amd breezy so bring proper clothing!

Fantastic views at the top of Mount Ogden. I didn’t wear pants though, and my legs took quite the beating, just like others said! Bring lots of water too. Great hike.

Easy to miss the last switchback over Brush creek before ascending the adjacent mountain side. not too much cover one out of the canyon, so bring plenty of water and sunscreen. I took 3 liters, and it wasn't enough. great view of Snowbasin Ski resort on the other side.

Made it to the summit of Mount Ogden! The hike took about 7 hours and saw one other person on the trail. I’m happy I read the comment below before going because parts are an absolute must. Also try to start early if you can. Sun exposure can drain you quickly on this hike. Luckily I didn’t see any rattlesnakes but I know they’re out there! Tons of water is necessary. Have fun!

Amazing hike. Started in Beus canyon, went to the the peak, then took the little-traveled trail to Malan's Peak. There was a couple of miles of bushwhacking a faint trail from the saddle to Malan's Basin. There are some carns along the way that help with navigating. I highly recommend wearing pants...legs took quite the beating. We logged 12.5 miles going up Beus and down Malan's Peak to the shoreline trail on 27th street. Took 7+ hours. Amazing hike!
