Mount Ogden Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Mount Ogden is a popular hike primarily because it is so close to the city of Ogden. The trailhead is only a three mile drive from Weber State University. The lower part of the climb, across Malans Peak and into Waterfall Canyon, is very pleasant, but beyond that the route to the top of the mountain is extremely strenuous.
There are some gorgeous views from the peak, not only of the city of Ogden, but also of the Snow Basin ski area and Pineview Reservoir. Unfortunately, however, the summit is now marred by the presence of a microwave transmitting tower. Mount Ogden can also be reached from its east side by way of a jeep road that ascends from Snow Basin to a saddle 0.2 mile south of the peak."
