Finally did this hike after living in Ogden for most of my life. I went up from the North Ogden Divide trailhead. Long hike, but it is really pretty flat most of the way; even the switchbacks are pretty mild. Beautiful walk along the ridgeline for several miles. This won't be my last time up this trail.

This amazing hike is not for the weak of heart. It is a fairly strenuous climb, particularly the first and last ascents. Be prepared to spend the whole day, and be sure to take plenty of water, there are no streams or ponds along the way. The views along the trail are beautiful; wild flowers and rugged pine trees line the trail along the way. From the top it is possible to see Logan, Huntsville, Brigham, and Ogden. Don't forget your camera.
