Try this simple hike to Ogden’s Lewis Peak

Tom’s Experience hiking to Lewis Peak:

Lewis Peak is to the east of Ogden City. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this hike.

Hiking Lewis PeakThere are great views of both Ben Lomond peak and Mount Ogden as well as great views of the city of Ogden and Pine View Reservoir.

Hiking Lewis PeakThe first two miles towards the summit are really steep but very pretty as you hike through a forest of trees. After that, it almost seems downhill to the summit but shade is very limited.

Mt Ogden from Lewis PeakThe summit over looks Ogden and is a great place to stop and rest for a while.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: Take North Ogden Canyon Road to the top of the North Ogden Divide. There is a parking lot on the south side of the road. Park there and take the trail that is south of the parking lot that starts heading uphill and eventually under some power lines. After that there are signs at most forks which tell you the distance and way to Lewis Peak.
