Enjoy the unique Southern Skyline Trail in Ogden

Tom’s Experience hiking the Southern Skyline Trail: 

The Southern Skyline Trail is 10 miles that connects the North Ogden Divide Trailhead to the Pineview Trailhead. You can do it as a point-to-point with two cars or go back-and-forth making it a 20 mile adventure.

You can also hit up Lewis Peak on your way towards one of the trail heads and that adds about 4 miles round trip.

Hiking Southern Skyline Trail from Pineview trailhead

I started at the North Ogden Divide Trailhead and headed towards the Pineview Trailhead. The elevation change is about 3100 feet and both the start and the end of the trails are pretty steep.

Overgrown Southern Skyline Trail

This trail has great views of Ben Lomond, Mount Ogden and Pineview Reservoir. The trail is mostly hard dirt with a few rocky spots and it can be very over grown in some places.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: To get to the North Ogden Divide Trailhead – 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 the Pineview Trailhead. There are also mile signs every mile showing you your distance. To get to the Pineview Trailhead – Drive 5 miles up Ogden Canyon and turn left across the dam. About a half mile later there will be a small parking lot and sign on the right that says Pineview Trailhead. The trail starts across the street and heads south.
