Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 217 - Hidden Valley Trail

Continuing our Trailhead Podcast Series, we decided to hit up a less popular Ogden Classic - Hidden Valley Trail. Accessed from Indian Trail, this steep route winds up the west-facing hillside and finally around the backside entering, you guessed it, a hidden valley where the mountain lions, and Bigfoot roam.

Thanks to Ogden Trails Network, one can now hike the connector trail from the top of Hidden Valley down through Taylor Canyon making a roughly 5 mile loop back to the 22nd Street Trailhead. With over 2,100ft of vertical gain in less than 2.5 miles, this hike is not recommended for young children or beginners. Although not technical, nor exposed, moderate to advanced hikers will love the inclines, views, and perceived solitude one can enjoy this close to town.

Thanks to John & Kristin Wojciechowski from Striders, Brian and CT from the GOAL Foundation were ushered up to the 22nd Street Trailhead for an impromptu Tan Van interview. The GOAL foundation invites the public to participate in the GOAL Foundation Fitness Trail Ribbon Cutting on November 4th. Here's the event details: https://www.facebook.com/events/397240290474265/

Ogden's GOAL Foundation is hosting a night with Ralph William Allred and The Banyan Collective's next episode of Mr. Goodyear's Neighborhood - a podcast about a mountain town, run by mountain people.
