The Bonneville Shoreline Trail is popular because of its easy access from Ogden and includes multiple trail head access points. Named after the old shoreline of Lake Bonneville that covered much of Utah, now the Great Salt Lake is all that remains.
Begin at the Rainbow Gardens parking lot at the base of the Ogden Canyon. This section of the trail follows the east bench of Ogden City and provides views of the city and Great Salt Lake. 5.8 miles out and back, it’s a moderate trail with few steep spots and tons of wildflowers, perfect for families. Beware: this single track trail is a favorite for mountain bikers and frequent switchbacks can cause low visibility.
This portion can be used as a 4 mile point-to-point or an 8 mile out-and-back trail. Begin at Pioneer Trailhead at 2750 N Mtn Road and continue along the mountain ridge. Towering above is the beautiful Ben Lomond Peak and there’s plenty of wildflowers on the trail to admire.
