We were out for a family event in Ogden and while there I noticed how high and fast the Ogden River was flowing, so I decided to go for a walk. I was joined by a few people in the family who agreed it would be nice..
Once you get passed the Rodeo Grounds and a few private residents the trail gets kind of pretty in and of itself. At this point we decided to turn back towards home, the kids were getting restless and it looked like rain.
Considering how much the area has been ravaged by mans hand, it is still a nice stroll. Next time we are in the area we are going to take the trail the other direction towards the canyon. It’s closer to the road, but who knows what we might find.
As someone who loves nature, and kind of resents mans desire to destroy it, I actually rather liked this trail, even though the hand of man is strong in the area. I think Ogden is doing really well in attempting to balance what the people of Ogden's past have done, and returning the river to it’s original beauty.
Final Squirrel Rating: 7. It is a super easy paved trail, right next to the city, but still feels natural enough that it is enjoyable.
