Snowbasin / Cache National Forest -Maples to Wheeler Creek to Sardine Peak to Ogden Canyon Overlook & back to Snowbasin. This trail takes in the best of Snowbasin and the Cache Nation Forest. The trail is 90% covered by trees. At the top of Sadine Peak you can see over Pineview Reservoir. At the top of Ogden Overlook you have a 360 degree view over Ogden Canyon. The climbs are switchbacks with easy very few obstacles. Sardine is a newer trail so not as traveled as other popular trails.

Love this trail. Hiking or bikeing are both great here. One of my favorites so far.

It is a very brushy trail, especially on the "back half" of the loop (opposite Ogden overlook) but has very nice views. It's a little buggy right now, but has great flowers. I also saw several snakes so keep your eyes open. Overall, great spot for a hike, bike, ride or run!

Leaves are changing in mid-September when i did this hike, and West side of the loop has the overlook and a few other places with very nice views. Getting up to Sardine Peak itself will be a scramble of a few hundred feet through underbrush - take a small trail marked hikers only southeast of the peak. If you take the wider trail directly east of it, it just takes you around - doesn't get any closer. East side of the loop has some great views of Pineview on top, but after that it's just a lot of wooded switchbacks that all look the same. Good for bikers, but made for a boring last half of the hike.
