Tom’s Experience hiking the Birdsong Trail:
The Birdsong Trail is a short, family friendly hike, in the Ogden area. The trail is on well-packed dirt the whole time. It starts at the Rainbow Garden parking lot and goes until 20th street. You can hike it out-and-back or park two cars. The distance is a mile from one end to the other.
You pass 6 springs, a pond and one deep forest, as well as nice views of the mountains and Ogden. The various springs provide water for much of the vegetation. If you go in the spring or fall you can hear many different birds singing.
The trail is well maintained and packs a lot of different environments in a short distance. Dogs are allowed but must be leashed. It is also a very popular mountain biking trail.
Check out my wife’s awesome water waist pack the Nathan Speed 2. You can get it on Amazon
