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.

My husband and I completed this trail on July 7.

This trail is conveniently located, and easy to follow. Since it's paved, it's wheelchair friendly, but there is a steep descent at the beginning, so you'd need to be careful. We didn't see any spectacular wildlife, but it was a decent walk nonetheless. And afterwards, we ran through the splash pad that was right next to the parking lot.

Would recommend this hike for anyone looking for something easy and close by.

Great trail for families and for a quick jog. It is all asphalt and has restrooms, a park, and a splash pad. It also has a beautiful view of the mountains.

This walk is set amongst the mountains and surrounded by beautiful fields and lots of birds. Perfect little walk with the kiddos. The avocado sewer cover was very funny too =)

It was an easy trail and well kept even during the winter months. Just needs to have access to drinking water but understandable that it was winter time.

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.
