description: this local hike is a favorite and is used quite frequently. just a quick 1.5 hour hike/walk at the most makes it perfect for a quick run or outdoor family activity. it has two trail heads; 29th street and 36th street, a west and east side loop, several connections to canyons and the rest of the ogden bench trail system. horses are a no go, but mt. bikes, walkers and dogs are allowed with wood-chipped trails reserved for foot traffic. great views of the city and mountains on either side. tip: a particularly beautiful view comes after a freshly dampened day with clouds rolling in over the city at dusk/sunset!!
