The mountains that give Ogden’s incredible backdrop are a chain of peaks that rise to more than 8,000 feet of elevation. Two summits really rise above them all, Willard Peak and Ben Lomond at well over 9,000 feet tall. One epic trail follows the entire ridgeline and climbs to the top of the Northern Wasatch. This is the Skyline Trail. Great for hiking and mountain biking once the snow has mostly melted, the trail extends north and south from North Ogden Divide, and both directions feature a set of steep switchbacks before gaining the rolling, high-altitude ridgeline and commanding views over both sides of the range—Salt Lake Valley to the west and Ogden Valley to the east.

Just outside of town, mountain snowmelt feeds a 200-foot cascade in the aptly named Waterfall Canyon. Beginning from trailheads at the top of 27th Street or 29th Street, a family-friendly trail leads to the falls. The path features brilliant spring wildflowers and views over Ogden on the gradual ascent into the canyon. Once inside the tight gorge, the trail steepens but soon rewards you with the huge waterfall at the end.

Bonneville Shoreline Trail runs the length of the Salt Lake Valley at the foot of the mountains. The section over Ogden grants great views over the city and the lake. Rolling terrain, proximity to town, and plenty of trailheads to choose from make this the perfect choice for hiking, biking, and trail running to start or finish the day. Junctions with other trails around Mount Ogden Park and up shorter canyons such as Taylor Canyon or Jump-Off Canyon give options for longer adventures.

Most trails around Ogden are open to mountain bikes, but Ogden Canyon has some of the best. Begin at Wheeler Creek Trailhead on the wide trail that gently ascends the canyon, then choose your adventure once the canyon forks at Art Nord Trailhead. From here, singletrack trails travel through open meadows, deep forests, over creeks, and around alpine ponds to connect more amazing riding at Snowbasin Resort to the south or Ogden Canyon Overlook and Sardine Peak to the north.

Sightseeing
The Union Station represents a great deal of the culture and history of Ogden and Weber County. Ogden has been a railroad town and this fine structure represents the most importance of railroading in Ogden. The station which stands here now is the third station to stand in this vicinity since the beginning of Ogden. The first station (1A) was a clap-board structure painted bright red which stood further west and north than the present station. That station was built in 1870 and was replaced in 1889 by a large red sandstone and brick structure (1B) which was highlighted by a high clock tower and dormer windows. This station was a hotel-station which served to accommodate the volume of transcontinental passengers that passed through Ogden. The designer of that station was a famous American architect Henry VanBrant. The station burned down in February 1923. The present station (1C) was completed in 1924 and was designed by Los Angeles architects, Donald and John Parkinson. The style is Italian Renaissance with a Spanish Cordovan roof. The station for many years was the hub of activity of the city with a volume of 119 passenger trains moving through the Ogden station every 24-hour period during World War II. Over the years passenger service has declined but the freighting service still is done in big volume. The statin building stands as a monument to the great days of railroading in Ogden – the Junction City.
