The South Ogden Nature Park contains approximately 57 acres. Nearly 80% is preserved as natural areas, most of which is accessed by trails. An 8 foot wide asphalt trail loops within the park while a number of natural trails spur off of the loop and provide a less traveled alternative to explore. Pets must be leashed and picked up after. Do not pick flowers. No smoking or alcoholic beverages.

I live nearby so I love taking my dogs on this trail. It's cool, simple, and paved so many of my neighbors use it for daily jogging and burning out the kids. Not worth traveling for unless you just want to walk/jog somewhere different. Not much shade mid day so do this one in the morning or evening.

Decent little .8 mile loop. We walked it twice. Not mich shade, or a lake, so it was a bit confusing for us looking at the trail map. Lots of birds (especially quail), butterflies and even a couple of rabbits seen. Not much to look at, but a nice evening or early morning walk.

I love this loop if I'm nearby, but it's not worth a special trip for. You can bike, run, walk, bring kids, bring dogs, etc. There's a light climb either way to get a little burn going. It can get crowded.

Awesome little trail for people with strollers and little kids. It's paved and has a playground.

Beautiful trail! We went around a couple times, we saw a deer and there is a small water outlet that appears to look like a small waterfall hidden in the trees.

Great trail for a quick walk. You can usually hear various wildlife in the wetland area and hear some birds, but mostly this is just a trail for human traffic. Can be quite busy at times, but it's great during winter when the trail melts quickly and the crowds stay home.
