My husband and I completed this hike with our friend Erin on November 4.

Be warned: much of this is not a true trail. We kept the app open, trying to stay on the red line, and it basically took us straight up the side of the mountain. At a couple points, we ran into a trail, but it was a lot of straight up climbing.

We didn't make it to James Peak.... we stopped at Cobabe Peak.

Giving this trail three stars because we still had a good experience despite our tracking difficulties. At the top of Cobabe Peak, it snowed (our first of the season!), and the view was beautiful! We could see entire mountain ranges that I didn't even know existed.

Overall we made a pleasant day of it, but couldn't recommend this trail because of how difficult it was to follow!

A great spot to hike. I was surprised to see this one final got accepted. This trail is basically Powder Mt. Boundary area. There is a lot of wildlife in this canyon, chance are pretty good you will come across something. Wonderful views all around. I didn't follow it all the way but I am told you could summit James Peak if you continue North.

Pretty consistent climb. 3 miles from trailhead to Cutler Spring. Ran into snow at about 8,000 ft.

Great hike down! Awesome paper airplane. I wouldn’t call this a loop though. When you get to the airplane, just turn around and go back the way you came.

the views were amazing, though the incline made it a tad harder than moderate, plus.the distance. worth it though!

One of my first hikes in Utah and it was a beauty! Fall colors are starting to appear. We went early, as much of the trail is exposed, and I was glad we did. Nice breeze!

Did this as a hike/run, fall is a great time to go for some great views of fall colors. Go early as the majority of the trail is exposed. First 1 1/2 miles are a beast!

one of my favs!

This trail is easy to find, has incredible views, and is a great beginner hike. I did run into a moose while I was hiking so be careful. The only downfall was the trail markers were pretty short and blended with the scenery. I almost didn’t catch a few.

A scenic single track mountain and valley loop trail south of Powder Mountain Ski resort that winds through a juniper and aspen forest. For moutain bikers it's an easy to moderate in difficulty. The trail head has plenty of parking, but no water or facilities. The trail has lots of gradual climbs and descents. I ride a hard tail with 27 1/2 inch wheels with no problems. Although, I appreciate having the 27 1/2 wheels to ride over the obstacles, I've seen other riders with 26 inch even 24 inch wheels that were likely bought at Walmart and they seem to do just fine. It has some man made rock and log obstacles that can challenge the novice, but they are there to add to the fun. In all, it is a fun ride for all riders and you can gain speed on the descents. Of course watch for hikers and for other riders coming from the opposite direction. I like to ride the loop trail twice, once from each direction. The trail is single track, but wide enough in most spots to safely ride past others.

the part of the trail with switch backs is very nice and the paper airplane is very nice, but the side without switchbacks is very very steep. so if you are with a family i would recommend doubling back on the side with switch backs. also, the part of the trail with no switch backs is not marked very well, so make sure you have your app open so you know when to start looking for the straight ish part.

Amazing sights everywhere. The beginning is quite steep but becomes a little more moderate and easy for the last miles. Some marking were a little unclear but the path was relatively well kept. The second half is almost fully exposed but there is a little shade.

Flat easy trail with fantastic views. You can drive on paved roads all the way to the trailhead. The roads are new enough that they aren’t showing up on AllTrails yet. We saw a fair number of bikers and a few other hikers. We did this end of July. Probably best earlier in the year. The meadows were full of flowering plants that were past their prime at the end of July. We will do it again in June and hopefully hit those meadows at their peak.

Steady incline and amazing views of Pineview. Make sure to bring lots of water for you and your fur friend as there is no creeks or springs. This will be fun to snowshoe too!

Great trail, lots of shade. Only got to the first shoulder. Pressed for time. About 5 miles.

Beautiful hike through dense forest followers by open ridge trails with views in every direction.

Trail is very beautiful with one downside - you can hear the road traffic.
However, the bridge on the north side of the trail was washed out last year and has still not been replaced. In other words the trail is still closed as of 07-03-18.

Love biking and hiking this trail.

The hike is beautiful. It provides sections with shade and many others with great views of the Ogden Valley, Ben Lomond Peak, Pineview Reservoir, Ogden Peak, and Ogden Canyon. It is somewhat steep at times but not terribly difficult. The smell of horse mint and other plants is so refreshing. There is no water on the trail. Bikers and dirt bikes also use the trail so keep an eye out.

This is one of my favorite hikes. If you can just make it past the initial switchbacks, then you’ll probably be fine. After that, there are some lesser uphill climbs (there are routes around some of them, if you want to skip some!of the uphill portions), but it’s generally a very moderate hike with great sight lines all along the trail. This trail in my experience tends to be a busy one and it also allows motorcycles, of which there were more than 10 that passed me on my last hike.

Easy hike with amazing views and beautiful wildflowers in mid June.

During the Spring the initial north face switch back elevation climb is through dence vegatation including oak brush and spruce trees. The trail starts with a very cool single track and even at times a shady tunnel effect as you climb upwards. There is a small spring coming down one of the switchback turns. A good place to rest in the shade if you need it.

Finally, you come to the "light at the end of the tunnel" and after passing a giant spruce tree the trail opens up and now you're exposed to the sunlight and drier sagebrush. In the late Spring you'll find lots of colorful wildflowers with the panoramic views of the Great Salt Lake, Ogden Valley, Mount Ogden and Ben Lomond.

When you reach the posted sign: Lewis Peak 3 mi North Ogden Divide TH 2 1/2 mi the trail will divide a few times on your way to Lewis Peak. You may either climb the small peaks along the way to enjoy the panoramic views or you can save your energy and skirt around them. In either case you won't be disappointed.

After two miles of gentle up and down changes in grade you'll come to the final ascent through a hillside covered in quake and aspen. Again the top of Lewis Peak is exposed. So, hopefully your wearing a hat, you put on your Sport 50 SPF, brought at least a liter of water, a snack and a extra pair of dry socks. After taking in the views, it's time for the 5.2 mile trek back.

It's a mostly downhill from now on and so you might feel those blisters start to develope. The wind can pick up in the afternoon, it might not be a bad idea to carry a light shell in your small pack.

In the winter, after a fresh snowfall, I love to snowshoe this trail.

Did this yesterday. Almost turned back about 1.5 miles in because I ran into very low, dark fog, but I waited it out for about 10 minutes and the sun started breaking it up. Glad I didn’t quit because it was a great hike, great views, and nothing dangerous (like real narrow edges over a steep cliff, etc). The only “bad” thing is there are some steep rolling hills between about the 3rd and 4th mile, which means the return trip isn’t “all down hill” right away. I think it will be great to do again in fall.

Panoramic view of ogden valley. Very steep but fun and more than moderate IMO
Can be muddy. Pretty narrow. Don’t enjoy bringing the dogs here. Much better dog trails. Some shade. Loose rocks and divits from horses can be hindering.

Great ride from Pineview to Ogden Canyon. Pineview is easy enough to take a novice rider but the descent to Ogden Canyon and back out is intermediate to expert. This trail allows dirt bikes. Hikers please step aside to allow riders to pass. Riders keep your speeds down! Weekends will be busy keep it 2nd gear.

Incredible ride you can access from Pineview or Ogden Canyon. The switchbacks going up from Ogden Canyon can get pretty rough and requires some skill to get up. Hikers keep in mind this is a Dirt-Bike trail please step aside and let motos pass. Riders keep your speeds down around blind corners!

Nice hike with spectacular views. Very narrow in parts and can be muddy which sucks going down.

The trail was nice and easy, just what I was looking for. I didn't hike the whole thing because I mainly went to fish. There is a decent amount of fishing spots along the trail. I went in March and it was not busy at all and hardly muddy. However, all vegetation was dead so the scenery could've been prettier. At times the trail goes on a road or sidewalk as well, so it doesn't feel much like a wilderness escape or anything. I wouldn't really hike this trail for fun, just to find a good fishing spot.
