Best Hikes Near Salt Lake City
by Lori J. Lee (Falcon Guides)
South Skyline Trail to the ridge is about the view, but it also boasts a climb amidst maples, subalpine and white fir, Gambel oak, and seasonal wildflowers. From North Ogden Divide the trail switchbacks to the top ridge of the mountain. Where vegetation falls away, the ridge view opens up down both sides of the mountain range: Weber Valley to the west, Ogden Valley and Pineview Reservoir to the east, and the towering view of Ben Lomond Peak to the north. As you hit the ridge the trail eases into an easy ridgeline, the Skyline that connects North Ogden Divide to Ogden Canyon in the south. This may be one of the best trails for enjoying fall’s color display.
