The Ogden River Parkway runs 9.6 miles along the Ogden River. Unimaginable years ago, given the industrial water pollution, valiant efforts have seen the river be restored and transformed into a healthy, vibrant nature retreat right in the heart of downtown Ogden.
The trail begins at the mouth of Ogden Canyon along State Route 39, and it travels west to Fort Buenaventura, where it links up with the Weber River Parkway. The Ogden River Parkway is also part of the Golden Spoke trail system, which spans more than 100 miles between Ogden and Provo.
Between stunning river views, hearty fishing, and access to attractions such as Rainbow Gardens and the Historic 25th Street district, the trail will appeal to a range of users. As you wander past the ponds and parks, be sure to find a shady spot to pause and just take it all in.
The Ogden River Parkway can be accessed from any of the intersecting roads, in addition to its trailheads at Ogden Canyon and Fort Buenaventura, which is a couple of miles south of the confluence of the Ogden and Weber rivers.
Major parking locations are on the north side of Ogden Canyon Road at the mouth of Ogden Canyon as well as the Rainbow Gardens (1851 Valley Dr). Additionally, visitors can park at Big Dee Sports Park (1376 Park Blvd), Ogden Botanical Gardens (1750 Monroe Boulevard), West Stadium Park (1650 Jefferson Ave) , and Twenty-First Street Pond (650 W 20th).
