Ogden Canyon Overlook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Beginning at Snowbasin ski resort, the hike to Ogden Overlook sits in a high alpine environment complete with quaking aspen, a variety of conifers, maples, and abundant wildflowers in spring. The trail traverses the mountain on a number of switchbacks as it climbs to an overlook, complete with benches for viewing Ogden to the west, Cold Water Canyon directly below to the west, Sardine Peak and Ogden Canyon to the north, and surrounding mountains and cliffs to the east and south.
You can even catch the tip of Ben Lomond Peak—one of the 11,000-foot peaks in the Wasatch Range. The trail switches between shade and sun as you climb up the mountain surrounded by nature at its finest and periodic views of Snowbasin to the south."
--Lori J. Lee, Best Hikes Salt Lake City (Falcon Guides).
"You’ll gain most of your elevation on the gondola ride, which tops out near a glacial cirque. From there, it’s just 20 minutes to the ridgeline. A faint trail follows the ridgeline to the summit, offering sweeping views in all directions."
--Greg Witt, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City (Menasha Ridge Press).
