Tom’s Experience hiking the Ogden Overlook Trail:
The Ogden Overlook Trail is a fairly easy hike leading to a great lookout over Ogden Canyon.
The trail is a little dusty but in great shape and easy to follow.
This is a very popular mountain biking trail; as a hiker, you should keep an eye out for people cruising down the track. The trail starts from the parking lot of the Snow Basin Ski Resort and climbs steadily upward until you reach the look out.
The path has plenty of signs so it is easy to follow. There are also quite a bit of trees, so shade is easy to come by. The trail will start out going downhill towards a meadow and then begin climbing switchbacks through the forest.
There is one turnoff near the end that is marked by a sign that points the direction of the lookout. There is a bench at the lookout to sit and enjoy the view.
The total distance is about 5.75 miles with an elevation gain of 800 feet. Dogs are allowed on the Ogden Overlook Trail.
Trail Info: The trailhead starts at Parking 2 of the Snow Basin parking lot. There is a metal gate there that closes the dirt road off from all motorized traffic.
