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

Fun hike! A great workout and fairly steep most of the way. The trail was busy on a Saturday morning so watch where you step, lots of dog poop on the trail. Not much water running either.

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.

on Malan's Peak Trail

There is quite a dense network of trails in this area, especially at the bottom of the canyon, and it looks like you could do this in a couple of different ways. Parts of this trail are included in at least 3 other trail entries on AllTrails. I just started at the end of 27th street and followed the signs for the north side of Taylor Canyon, and then took the signed turn to Malan Peak. After you take that turn, it is as others have said, relentlessly steep uphill. You can pretty much get the idea from the benchmark lines on the map. I guess the thing is to go slow and maintain a cheery disposition. Almost no water in the creek, no snakes and very few bugs this early Sunday morning. After reaching the peak I went another .5 miles into Malan Basin, which was nice and a bit cooler, but I guess I turned around just short of reaching the old resort.

From the map it looks like you could do this as a loop using the Beus Canyon Trail, but other reviews warn that this is very difficult and requires bushwhacking. It's not clear if this refers to hooking up with Beus Canyon, Waterfall Canyon or Mount Ogden trails. I don't think I would ever have the energy for the option of winding all the way up to the top of Mount Ogden from this trail, especially when you can take a gondola most of the way up from Snowbasin.

Love this hike! Very steep! But the full hike is 7 miles not 4.4 ...

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.

Nice views on top watch out for snakes

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

Hiked this trail with my 9 year old and my parents. It was an uphill journey. Had to stop quite a bit near the top. I’m in moderate shape. It was an awesome workout with a beautiful view at the summit! Good amounts of shade along the way to help make steep trail manageable!

My husband and I completed this hike on July 4.

This was an awesome hike! Yes, it's steep, but there was way more shade than we expected, so it wasn't too miserable.

The views st the top were great, and everyone we encountered on the trail was friendly. Great hike to celebrate the 4th of July!

Would really recommend this hike to those who are up for the challenge!

A hard hike especially if you are overweight and out of shape but definitely worth it! The view is amazing! I would like to see dogs on leashes though.

Really nice hike! pretty steep all the way up but definitely worth it. watch for rattlers!!!

As a hike, it was spectacular but there were A LOT of mountain bikers so stay on the lookout. If you’re a mountain biker, I’d recommend a bell for your bike so that we know you’re coming.

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 ok, fairly short but peaceful. there is an area that is iffy for smaller kids so I would hold tight to them.

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.

Great hike! Beautiful views and and really good workout. A group of people coming down before us saw a rattler, so be careful.

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.
