Trail shared by John Arrington

A trail from the Pioneer Trailhead in North Ogden over North Ogden Divide and over to Eden.

This trail can have snow remain in the spring due to the trees and north-facing slope until about April. In the spring and early summer, there may be water in the stream that you have to cross just once without a bridge.

Description

This trail starts at the Pioneer Trailhead at 2750 N Mtn Road and goes up the bottom of North Ogden Canyon up to North Ogden Divide and down to Eden at 2900 E 3350 N. It is great for getting down to North Ogden or Eden from hiking the Skyline Trail.

The west side from the divide goes down singletrack through the trees for about the first mile. Keep your eye out as you descend, as there are roots and rocks that are hidden by the grass at the edges of the trail. There is one bridge to cross and a few switchbacks.

The trail then follows the dirt road that has a lot of loose rock in spots to the trailhead at the east end of 2750 North. It crosses the North Ogden Canyon - BST Connector, which can be taken north to the North Ogden Canyon Road or south to the Bonneville Shoreline to Coldwater Canyon - North Ogden.

Keep your eyes open for rattlesnakes on the dirt road section on the west side. They have been seen warming up on that road.
