HIKING WATERFALL CANYON
May 2002 - 15 photos


Waterfall Canyon is located just above the City of Ogden Utah. We hiked this on May 2nd, 2002, and it is one of the most popular trails in the local trail system. The trail rises about 1000 feet in 1.3 miles. This is a moderately difficult trail with some scrambling. Wear sturdy shoes as water may be on portions of the trail. The upper portion of the trail and the waterfall are on private land, and it is very important that we respect these private property rights. (This canyon used to belong to the Malan family. Some say it is named Malan's Waterfall).

Begin at the 29th Street trail head. Take the trail to the left at the shelter and follow the sign. The trail soon loops back to the right for a quarter mile, then turns up into the canyon. The 200 foot falls at the end of the trail is breathtaking, and well worth the hike.

New Info: Chris Peterson bought the property of Malan's Basin from the Malan family, and recently obtained all the property below including Waterfall Canyon. He is fencing the area and has put in gates. He now has rangers patrolling his property and they may require you to show ID and sign a log book to hike in the area. Todd Black, executive director of the Utah Cooperative Wildlife Management Association, said Peterson is within his legal right to use his own private rangers to enforce the laws of his land.
