Amazing view of Ogden and the waterfall is beautiful!! Steeper than I thought it would be especially close to the top, spikes highly recommended!

I just moved to the area. I borrowed my friends Yaktrax and they were a must have for the trail! Took about 2 hours roundtrip.

Hiked this on Jan. 13. Started a bit after 11 am at the 29th street trailhead. The trail was pretty clear up until the first bridge, then after that you NEED SPIKES on your shoes to safely go up and come down the trail.

My 1 1/2 year old lab came with me. I put “musher’s mush” on her paws when it got icy to help with the cold ice. She did great going up, but coming down was a bit harder for her (with no spikes), but as long as she went on the side of the trail she was okay for the most part. Also there is running water in the stream for pups to drink out of. I brought her water and she never drank any of it.

Pretty moderate hike. Not too easy, but not too difficult. I would definitely recommend SPIKES to do this trail - some folks had just the chains and said it was pretty hard to do with those.

it's a nice hiking trail for the family and friends

I love this trail! Indescribably beautiful in the winter and not a soul in sight! ❤️

Did this hike today, January 6. It's not too long, and the view of the frozen waterfall at the end is definitely worth it!

We were grateful that we brought our snowshoes.... not the ideal gear to have on such a rocky trail, but it was way better than nothing. We couldn't have made it up without them!

Our dog made it up with us as well. There were a few slippery spots for her but she was a champ!

Super icy make sure to wear spikes or chains on your shoes!

cross country skiing

When it really snows I like to cross country ski or fat bike this loop. There is minimal foot and even snowshoe traffic, due to the length and difficulty. Good for strong skiers to tackle. I like going counter clockwise and this affords a decent down by the power poles if you ski with full metal edges. With fresh powder try to beat the snowboard crowd up to the top. The reward is AT ski nirvana. Fat bike it on lesser days too.

Great place for the kids to study wildlife and explore.

Beautiful easy trail. I take my kids here often. It is more fun in the winter time.

This was a fun trail! Today was my first time doing it and it was beautiful. Good things about the trail is that the elevation gain is very spread out and gradual, it is very well marked and cut out, and the view from the top is beautiful. There were several great view points and I would say my favorite is actually right before you head back down the trail. This was a very difficult hike to complete in the snow, but beautiful (wear snow shoes for sure and it will be easier). Overall I really enjoyed it and it was a good level of challenging. Lots of moose tracks!

One of my favorite trails. So much beauty. Will kick your butt!

One of our favorites! Does see a lot of foot traffic, due to its popularity.

This is a great trail to get your heart rate up. Close to town but once in the valley you can’t see civilization. One of my favorites!

Great hike in and out. The first half is fairly easy , the last half is quite a workout.

Beautiful and peaceful! Got stopped by snow after 2 miles. Not deep, but I’m not equipped for snow and it was getting slick. Someday I hope to make it to the top!

A bit isolated, I went over the weekend and after the split to Malan’s peak I was the only person on the trail. I’m not sure if I actually found the end, I got to a point where the trail split and both forks looked to dead end within 200 feet, but someone else here says it ends in a clearing. Not too difficult, I only hit one relatively steep stretch up towards the end.

Fun hike and the creek is pretty. It’s a little over grown and there are some rocks oh have to get through. Not really hard though. the hardest thing is I have a 12 year old German wirehair pointer and she had a tougher times with the rock section. Couldn’t tell sometimes where the trail went

Very steep and it gets icy at the top. Waterfall is frozen now. Well do it again next summer.
