my son took me on this hike. It was a work out for me but I really enjoyed the scenery.

Only did 9 miles of it. I was pressed for time. Saw bobcat paw prints. Get up the switch backs quick, limited shade.

Nice falls, was on all fours toward the end.

Hiked this mid July and started around noon. Start of trail you are more exposed. Then shade for majority of trail. With a 1 and 2y/o we took our time due to heat. Scenery beautiful and would have appreciated a few more signs.

This is a favorite hike for our family. The waterfall is impressive. Try it in the winter if you haven’t! It’s a good workout and a fair climb but my young kids have all been able to do it.

Beautiful hike! If you go in the morning you can avoid the afternoon/weekend rush, as well as the heat. The trail has plenty of shade half way up.

Fun family hike with mostly shade and some sun. Nice views and a great little break at a wild cherry tree.

Good if you want something easy for small children. Well shaded and short.

Great trail but a little too busy for my liking...

Great hike, suggest you start out early to avoid the heat while maximizing nature moments

Nice trail near Ogden, UT. Some parts are overgrown, but elevation climb is pretty good.

I looked up the trail for road biking. The TH start is all gravel and dirt for about a mile then it hits pavement. So if you only have a street bike don’t start here. Other than that he trail was a nice. I got on about 0800 and there were some runners and bikers but not enough to bog the trail.

I took my 5 and 2 year old on this little hike and they loved it. We even did the loop a couple times. We have gone back and I’m sure we will again. Great for younger kids!

This was an easy trail to follow and I love that you can choose to go around the pond or follow the river, definitely a short walk so it would be easy for kids

Beautiful but lots of bikes. I almost got hit by one.

My husband and I completed this hike on June 19 with Scout dog.

This trail was mostly shaded, and had a moderately steep incline the entire way.

At one point, we might have taken a wrong turn, because we never made it to a waterfall or an overlook. According to the app, we were still on the trail, and we made it to the "end," but it was just a random clearing in the middle of the canyon. So maybe we should've kept going?

Oh well. A decent, but not spectacular, hike.

Had a pretty good time on this trail was a bit tougher then I expected at the beginning but once I hit the rocky area it got a lot easier for me!

This has always been one of my favorite hikes. Even though the trail is not terribly long, it is a pretty steady incline up to the waterfall. It is well shaded, making it a perfect hike for any time of day, and the falls at the top are nice and cool and absolutely lovely. The farther you go, the rockier and steeper the path gets, but with decent shoes or hiking sandals, it can be done within about two hours.

Was very confusing, really narrow parts and areas that crossed through the golf course. We started on 26th street is where we were directed from here. Was nice and shaded most of it, but there is so many forks and splits we didn’t complete it.

This may be my favorite hike in the Ogden area. I disagree with the rating on this trail and would categorize it as moderate. It’s long, but the elevation gain is gradual for most of the trail. After you reach the saddle, that’s where the toughest part begins. The trail up to the summit can be steep in parts, but it’s not a long distance and the payoff at the top is well worth the effort - you won’t be disappointed.

I hit the trail early in the morning (0630) the wind was blowing pretty well coming from the east like it does most days. It is paved all the way and is marked for the most part. I got off trail one time because I missed the sign for the trail (the orange arrows on the ground) they don’t say they are for the trail but they are. There are more arrows with different colors for other trails. I read in the reviews there were a lot of homeless around. I only saw 2 or 3 and they were closer to the Washington st. There are a lot of places to stop and enjoy the river and cool off. Over all the trail is a nice ride if you want to get the family out and riding.

This is a decent trail if you’re looking for something leisurely to do for a morning walk, but don’t hit this trail in search of a hike. It’s very shaded most of the way.

This is a nice trail for a quick hike. It can be quite hot in the afternoon for the first half of the trail, which is completely exposed, but the last half is through an area with lots of tree cover, making it nice, even on hot days. The last 1/3 mile or so is very steep. I would suggest trekking poles, otherwise you’ll end up like me, grabbing random shrubs and trees to make it up to the top. It was about four miles round trip and took about 50 minutes to reach the top.

Took longer than expected but worth the views. Bring water and snacks. Snowpack made some parts a little challenging.

Really good day hike if you go 1.6 miles and back really beautiful green. Remembes me of a jungle. After 1.6 miles it raps around and fallows The top all the way to Mount Ogden. Warning not much water after 1.6 miles recommend boiling or filtration.

I love this hike. Trail is pretty easy to follow. Good workout. Lovely view. Towards the ends you have to deal with lots of rocks.

Started at 22nd st trailhead to the other and back. Should have shuttled but only had one vehicle. Confusing part when past the emergency shelter, remember head left. Took 4 hours round trip.
