We loved this hike!! It's shady most of the way. Lots of beautiful wildflowers and trees. We saw moose which was also very exciting! The view on top is amazing!

One if my favorite out and backs. Fairly smooth, clean trail. Great variety of trees--Quakies, Oaks, Maples, Pines. Nice trail to introduce newer riders to the pleasures of mountain bikes while still interesting to more experienced riders. Want more workout or excitement? Simply crank up your speed. Beautiful view from the top. Several hawks generally circle overhead. I've seen plenty of deer in the evenings and even a massive black moose.

Loved this hike! Stunning views, nice shade, gorgeous flowers, relatively easy but still got a work out in. Stumbled upon a rattlesnake so be careful. :)

I really enjoyed this hike! I brought my 5 month old puppy on the hike (she was on a leash) and I thought it was a quite easy hike. Great views on the way up and the view on the top was great! We started the hike on a Friday at about 11 and the trail had moderate traffic. It was about 50/50 cyclists and hikes but everyone was quite courteous of each other. I will definitely do this hike again!

Pretty gentle climb up to a spectacular view of Ogden and the Great Salt Lake. Beautiful foliage along the way. Need to share the trail with lots of mountain bikers.

Great for both the journey and the destination. Mostly through the trees. This map does not show quite right as you turn left onto the Ogden Canyon Overlook trail when you summit (there is a sign). It is worth the extra bit of hiking to do the last leg of the trail through the pine trees with a great (somewhat shear drop off) view of the Ogden Valley and Canyon (12th Street)

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
