Explore the most popular lake trails near Ogden with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Just agreeing with other 5 star reviews. This path is an absolutely incredible treasure. Among recreation amenities in general it ranks up there with anything Utah has to offer, and among urban riparian greenways it is probably in the top 10 in the US. If Utah had a more coherent way of managing its human-nature interface, this path and the ecosystem it is part of would put Ogden on the international map as an internationally desirable place to live.

The pond and little creek are beautiful. It is in an area where it closes at dusk. Love walking around the pond.

My husband and I completed this hike on August 25 with Scout dog.

From the earlier reviews, we were worried it would be an unpleasant experience, but we had a pretty nice time. Yes, there was a bit of litter, but it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. And we saw one group of drifters congregating by the water, but everyone else on the trail was civilized and friendly.

This trail is fully paved, and partially shaded, depending on the time of day. This would be a fun bike ride for kids.

Paved trail that is easily accessed for a quick walk, run, or bike ride. This loop links with the Weber Parkway trail system providing miles of outdoor access.

I love this trail as it runs by the river. I spent my childhood walking a long it.

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

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.

A perfect short walk if you are in Ogden. Lots of drifters around though.

This drive had a ton to offer. Beautiful lakes and reservoirs, an easy to access waterfall and just gorgeous mountain scenery all throughout the drive.

Good easy trail for my new puppy. Main trail is paved, there are some branches of the trail that are dirt however not difficult at all. Seems busy most of the time.

I walk this path for the small river fly fishing. Tons of river access all along the path.

Our favorite place to escape. The kids love it

We drove this at night, which really does defeat the purpose. Driving this road the first time at night is a bit intimidating if you're not used to windy roads. There was also road construction in a few parts which made the shoulder very narrow. There are other parts of the stretch that naturally have a very low shoulder and signs mentioned not to walk or bike on the side. Hope we can go back again in the daytime!

If you had toddlers this would be amazing for them to buzz around. For more experienced hiker.... um skip it.

I wish Ogden city or West Haven city would regulate this area better. The garbage and homeless camps are getting out of control. Don't get me wrong, there is beauty to be found, but I would recommend doing it by bike in a quick ride. My favorite part is seeing where the Ogden and Weber Rivers combine. Lots of history signs on this trail too.

It is very beautiful, but you can tell a lot of people use this trail as their home.

Horrible trail. Tons of trash and this creepy feeling like people are watching you. Saw someone who just finished bathing in the river. You can tell a lot of people live in the foliage.

Lots of trees and shade. There were some picnic areas where you can have a BBQ. Trails lead off into the trees where you could experience an off road experience that was very peaceful. There were also some huge fish. There is also a really nice playground for the kids.

Really pretty scenic paved path along the Ogden river that runs all the way through the city. Some parts are nice near riverdale but other parts near north ogden can be kinda sketchy with druggie folks in underpasses
