One of my favorite hikes. some steep parts but overall pretty easy.

Just went for a walk there last friday, it was a perfect day/trail for a winter hike. The snow has been walked on enough that the trail is compacted fairly well.

Pictures don’t do it justice, way more impressive in person! Micro spikes are a definite need throughout the trail! The last .5 mile is super steep... going up was easy in comparison to going down. Though some parts of going back down turned out to be super fun since we ended up using our butts as a sled

Went in January so the trail was covered in snow. I took my 3 year old. It was perfect length for him and he loved the wood bridges. I wasn't a fan of listening to traffic driving by but my little boy had a blast.

Cut the last portion of the trail in. Snow is about 2 feet deep in the last section

The trail was well defined, serene, and quiet. I recommend, some water, a snack, spikes, and snowshoes. Worth the views!!

Hiked last summer...This trail is very overgrown the first time I tried to find it I failed and ended up on a different trail. However, if you do manage to get on the right trail it’s a lot of fun climbing over giant rocks and having the trail completely to yourself. It’s very steep, but a short hike and there are ropes along the trail to help you up the rocks. Although they seem old and frayed so I wouldn’t trust them completely. The cave is pretty cool, but it was scary climbing on the old rope and the inside of the cave was very slippery so you could easily get hurt if you climbed all the way to the back of the cave. (Bring a headlamp)

I just did this hike about a week ago. The snow makes it a little bit more challenging, but that’s the fun of it. It’s a short but steep hike so you feel like you’re still getting a good workout, and the views on the way up are amazing.

A great trail for snowshoeing! The east loop is longer than the west loop. Lots of critter tracks in the snow.

Our first hike in the area! Waterfall Canyon did not dissappoint. There is snow on the ground pretty much the last half mile which adds to the difficulty although it's still an easy enough hike. Falls are frozen pretty good at this point and make for great photos. Thank you to the property owners who let the public on their lands.

Enjoyed the work out! Great ride/workout under 1.5 hours.

Super hard. Gorgeous views. Can’t wait to do it again.

Hiked down this trail after taking Beus canyon trail up. Wasn’t the best trail until we got to the the sign and then it was pretty easy from there.

A real hidden gem, did this last week, got a little snow. I could see where the vegetation could block the views, but in the fall it was beautiful.

A little scratchy but a nice trail

This is one of my favorite mtb trails. It has a southern exposure which means that on warm sunny days I always fill up the water pack. I have ridden the trail loop clockwise and counterclockwise. I prefer clockwise. I now ride with tubeless tires, but even before I had tubless tires I found the climb to not be as foreboding as it appears from the parking lot. I like to deflate my rear tire so that there is just a touch of give. The first third of the ascent is gradual with good traction. The second third is steeper and exposed with some rocky terrain to impede the climb. The rewards are great views of Snow Basin to the right and after a short ride great views to the west. The final third is less rocky and better traction to the saddle on the the summit.

I like to reinflate my tires back up to 50 psi, drop my seat a bit, and do a quick assessment my bike before the descent. The downhill ride is a hoot! It seems like I'm riding downhill forever. With very few rocks, banked turns, easy switchback turns and long descents. After getting down to the bottom I wanted to do it again. Follow the trail over the bridges traveling clockwise until you hit the gravel path. Make a left to the parking lot. Or hang a right and do it again.

This was a really great trail to get some excercise on. You are on a steady elevation gain the entire time but it is very pretty and worth the time. I recommend poles for this trail. The trail signs are a bit confusing due to them stating there is a North and South Taylor Canyon. Can't find that on any map. I stayed on the signs for North and it took me up into the canyon. The trails runs along Taylor Creek and you hear/see water at times. I liked the fall leaves everywhere and the low volume of traffic.

Great trail to take a dog on. I love being in the trees, shade and fall leaves.

I’ve been wanting to connect this trail with Beus and yesterday my husband and i did it! We parked a car at Beus trailhead so we wouldn’t have to loop back to Malan’s after. We started at 27th and it took us about 4 hours total. We hike Malan’s pretty regularly, but have never been passed the basin. It was hard to find an actual trail after the basin. We were bushwhacking for awhile before finding anything to follow. Once we got to the radio towers, we cut over and ran down Beus. Definitely one for the books!

First time to Ogden. We wanted to see a little bit of autumn since we live in the Vegas desert. We did this hike with my 10 year old daughter and 5 year old son. We loved it! Beautiful foliage and the 2nd half of the trail was covered in marigold colored leaves and red leaves. The last stretch what some what difficult for the 5 year old given the steepness and all of the rocks but he made it to the top. Great trail for dogs. Can’t wait to come back and bring your husky.

Beautiful hike. Steep but manageable. I wouldn't rate this as a hard peak but take your time. Mostly shaded so it went from chilly to warm as you got into the sun. Did this last Sunday and it was a nice 70 outside. Gorgeous views of the valley and take your time at the top to enjoy. Your hard work will pay off!

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.

Conquered this loop with my son and sister and n-law and nephew. So much fun..

We love this trail. But about three weeks ago my dog got suddenly sick and passed away after hiking in the same spot on this trail two days in a row. I am wondering if anyone else had a similar experience?

Moderately steep! A nice upper glute burner through a cool ponderosa pine forest with long traverses. A very nice trail run/hike. There's a stream with a gradual water fall on the shared trail with Taylor's Canyon. After crossing the second bridge the trail continues to the right. It's a bit steep at first but the grade becomes less severe the rest of the way up. There is butte with a view a third of the way up. At the rocky top peak or butte is exposed with great views of the valley below and Mount Ogden behind. The descent had a few rocky turns, but it wasn't bad. Just watch your step.

Great for trail running. Perfect breaks between hills. Not scenic though.

These two 65 YOA flatlanders from Kansas enjoyed the hike. It had some beautiful views.
