The trail parallels Wheeler Creek and is a great summer afternoon ride since it runs North – South. As a result this trail is mostly shady in the later afternoon. Coupled with the running water and slightly higher elevation, this trail is typically a good 10 or more degrees cooler than Ogden city. This makes this a popular trail with the locals.
From this trail you get a great view of Snowbasin as well as the famous “Z-Fold” rock formation in Ogden Canyon. There are some homes near the trailhead, so please be respectful and stay on the trail.
