On Saturday, June 1, 2002, the non-profit Weber Pathways officially opened the Little Mountain Rail Trail (also known as the Weber Pathways Rail Trail) as part of the National Trails Day Celebration. This 10-mile trail, comprising 233 acres, preserves wildlife habitat and provides a public recreational trail for equestrian, mountain biking and pedestrian use. This rails-to-trails project, only the second of its kind in Utah, was accomplished through the partnership of several private, non-profit and public agencies.
For more information on this and other trails in Ogden and Weber County, please see the Trail Websites. The first site is for the non-profit group Weber Pathways, while the second site is the Ogden/Weber Convention/Visitors Bureau. Trail information for Ogden and Weber County is available by clicking on Outdoor Adventure.
