Micro-spikes may be useful on this steep trail and I will use my trekking poles for the hike down.
Please bring at least two quarts of water plus food to enjoy at the peak of Hidden Valley. Don’t forget your camera.
The trail is a one way hike but we can add around three miles heading down to Taylor Canyon and heading North on the Bonneville Shore-line Trail to our parking lot on 22nd street.
Hidden Valley is a 4.9 mile out and back trail located near Ogden, Utah that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
The path to Hidden Valley uses the Indian Trail for approximately one-half mile. At this point a trail leads up into the hills and back to the south, and can easily be missed so watch for words painted on rocks on the uphill side of the trail. This is the beginning of the Hidden Valley Trail. It is a fairly steep trail but the path is well defined. The hike is about 2.5 miles one-way dead end. It calls for a vertical ascent of about 2,200 feet. Hidden Valley, a substantial mountain bowl, was for centuries a favored hunting ground for Indians, trappers and the early pioneers. Populations of Rocky Mountain sheep, deer, elk and other game animals used the area for spring forage or relief from the heat of the summer. The hike offers spectacular views of the Ogden area. Carry along water and a snack. This is a non-accessible, simple/minor developed trail.
