From a mild winter, to a rapidly warming spring we have had plenty of opportunity to get our exercise outdoors this year. We are blessed in Utah to have plenty of year-round outdoor recreational activities to keep us moving. In Ogden, we are especially lucky to have over 200 miles of hiking and biking trails in our own backyard. There are casual parkways, and steep trails to beautiful mountain tops. So, take a stroll, lace up your running shoes, or put on your helmet to get out and walk, run, hike or bike Ogden!
Here are some of our favorite local trails, rated by Utah.com:
Ogden River Parkway
The paved trail follows the Ogden River through the city. The trail begins at the mouth of the canyon near Rainbow Gardens- great for bikers, runners and walkers.
