The Ogden River Parkway is a spectacular 9.6 mile walk through nature in the heart of downtown Ogden. The trail begins near Rainbow Gardens at the mouth of Ogden Canyon, and ends at the south end of Fort Buenaventura just west of 24th street. Construction of the trail began in 1992, and surrounding cities (including West Haven, Riverdale and Uintah) aspire to interconnect the Ogden River Parkway with their trail systems to create a 28.2 mile intercity loop beginning and ending at Rainbow Gardens. Although plans have not been finalized nor a completion date set, both hikers and bikers anxiously await this exciting potential natural resource.
Fisherman also enjoy the Ogden River Parkway. Fishing is allowed along the parkway in both the Weber and Ogden rivers (with valid fishing license, of course). While building the trail, fishing structures were built into the river to encourage a growing population of fish as the river is filled with a variety of trout as well as small mouth bass.
