Want to learn the secrets of Ogden's trails?
Ogden’s long love affair with its mountain and urban trails is celebrated in a new coffee-table book about to be published by the Ogden Trails Network (OTN) committee.
Secrets of the Ogden Trails is designed to enhance the experience of using the city’s 75-mile network of trails for both new and long-time residents. “There is a surprising world just a hike away,” according to writer and editor Ron Thornburg.
The 42-page, soft-cover book features the spectacular color photography of OTN member David Owen. Owen’s pictures will give readers a new appreciation for the unique beauty of our area, Thornburg said. The photos are enhanced by graphic artist Michael Goodwin’s design.
The book features little known stories about places along the trails that connect us to prehistoric Indians as well as more recent Mormon pioneers. It includes“Pathfinder Profiles” of residents who worked tirelessly to construct and improve the trail system. It includes a foreword by Dr. Mikel Vause and an afterword by Ogden Mayor Mike Caldwell.
