For those who need more than just a summit as the capstone to their hike, Weber State's Outdoor Program is leading hikes to three local waterfalls this summer: Waterfall Canyon, Farmington Creek and Adams Canyon.
"These three waterfalls are great local resources that people should be able to repeat on their own after doing them with us," said Jamie Bernstein, the university's outdoor program coordinator, in a university press release.
To join in a hike, meet at 7 a.m. on the schedule day (listed below) at the Weber State Outdoor Program building located at 4022 Taylor Avenue in Ogden.
Before the hike you plan to attend, be sure to register online at weber.edu/outdoor/waterfall-series because vehicle space is limited.
The program asks attendees to bring their own day pack, sturdy shoes, food, water, a jacket and sun protection.
June 8: Waterfall Canyon
One of Ogden's most popular hikes, Waterfall Canyon is a must-visit for locals and visitors alike.
The hike can be steep and rocky at points, so wear sturdy shoes or boots.
Length: 2.4 miles
June 23: Farmington Creek
Another popular trail, Farmington Creek is true to its name and runs parallel to the creek, ending at a waterfall near Sunset Campground.
The wide trail provides plenty of room for joggers and all types of non-motorized travel, according Farmington City's website.
Length: 2.9 miles
July 20: Adams Canyon
Most of the Adams Canyon hike follows North Fork Holmes Creek. Combined with shade trees, the creek moderates the temperature on a hot day.
The first part of the hike is tough, with a series of switchbacks, but the rest of the trail is not as demanding.
There's a waterfall early in the hike, but the real treat is the 40-foot beauty at end.
Length: 3.8 miles roundtrip
