Hi. I posted this hike this time last year on May 28th. Below is the link with pics.
Micro-spikes will be immensely useful on this steep wintery trail and I will use my trekking poles for the hike down.
Please bring at least two quarts of water plus food to enjoy at the peak of Hidden Valley. Don’t forget your camera.
The trail is a one way hike but we can add around three miles heading down to Taylor Canyon and heading North on the Bonneville Shore-line Trail to our parking lot on 22nd street.
Hidden Valley is a 4.9 mile out and back trail located near Ogden, Utah that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
The path to Hidden Valley uses the Indian Trail for approximately one-half mile. At this point a trail leads up into the hills and back to the south, and can easily be missed so watch for words painted on rocks on the uphill side of the trail. This is the beginning of the Hidden Valley Trail. It is a fairly steep trail but the path is well defined. The hike is about 2.5 miles one-way dead end. It calls for a vertical ascent of about 2,200 feet. Hidden Valley, a substantial mountain bowl, was for centuries a favored hunting ground for Indians, trappers and the early pioneers. Populations of Rocky Mountain sheep, deer, elk and other game animals used the area for spring forage or relief from the heat of the summer. The hike offers spectacular views of the Ogden area. Carry along water and a snack. This is a non-accessible, simple/minor developed trail.
Flag Rock Trail. To find the trailhead take 100 N in Farmington and head as Far East as that road will go. The trailhead is at the entrance sign for a new neighborhood going in.
This hike is tough, dress for the cold, bring cleats, and a headlamp .
Call if you have questions. [masked]
Under 5 miles and about a 1000 fr elevation gain.
Take water, snacks, cleats, and possibly snowshoes if you have them.
Meet at the lower parking lot near the Maples Trailhead. If this is too crowded we’ll detour to Wheeler Creek as an alternate.
Comment if you’d like to carpool from the South Weber Park ‘n Ride.
Meetup at 10am at the southern parking lot at the Fernwood Recreation site.
This trail has about a[masked]ft climb in elevation and is about 4 to 4.5 miles. To be honest I could not find the trail map in All Trials but this is a mellow hike mostly on the BST. We’ll head north, take the upper trail on the east side until we get to Kay’s Creek, then turn south and take the BST back.
Questions call or text me at[masked]
TENTATIVE: I’m throwing this one out there to see what the turnout will be. As we get closer to the 31st if I don’t have at least 5 signed up I will cancel this event.
The Weber group did this on the 4th of July and it sounded awesome. The plan is to hike up to Malan’s point (aka Baby Malan’s) to celebrate the New Year by seeing the sights and sounds of Ogden.
This has been a great year of hikes and what better way to usher in 2019.
I’ll bring snacks to share with the group. Meet at 27th street trailhead. This is 3 miles round trip and about 1000 ft elevation gain.
