An incredibly scenic, yet challenging hike located just north of Ogden. The trail is a perfect day hike for those looking for a little challenge.

The trail starts in the Right Fork North Ogden Canyon near Liberty, Utah. Park in the main parking lot and then cross the road to the trailhead. You will see a sign at the beginning indicating that the Ben Lomond summit is 8.2 miles away.

In the spring, it is quite difficult to make it all the way to the summit. Snow covers most of the path well into May, however I'd still highly recommend the hike up to the saddle to get some incredible views of the surrounding area.

The hike is long, but not too grueling. Covering 3500 feet in elevation gain over 8.2 miles isn't too difficult. The steepest park of the hike is the very beginning and very end.

Throughout the entire hike you'll see incredible views of the surrounding Wasatch Mountain Range and the Great Salt Lake.

Ben Lomond is the most prominent mountain in the North Ogden area. Before you hike you will easily be able to see the peak along with the ridge you will be walking to the southeast. It's a challenging, yet beautiful trek that any hiker will find rewarding. 

Pack List

  • Hiking shoes
  • Wind jacket
  • Camera
  • At least one gallon of water per person
  • Snacks
  • Snow boots if hiking in the spring

This is one of the best mountain hikes in Ogden. The views are great and the trail is well maintained. You often are able to see moose and mountain goats from the trail.
