    Rainbow Gardens to Beus - Ogden Bonneville Shoreline Trail

    As I was driving up 12th street, this monstrous storm cell hit, stopping traffic, laying down about 2 inches of water on the road. So I assumed the trails would be toast, I turn around and start heading home. Then I saw the mountains from a different angle and could see they weren't getting hit, so I turned around again and headed up. I'm glad I did, the trail was great, just a handful of small puddles.

    It was a great ride last night, well it started out great then a few things fell apart starting with the YUGE storm cell that rolled over me at the highest point of the trail. I had to lean up against a vertical rock for some shelter. Then about 2 miles from the bottom, I get a flat, and my CO2 inflator breaks, so I end up walking down the last mile.

    Still better than staying home and cleaning the garage

    Here is a favorite section of the trail, Strongs Canyon, south of Waterfall Canyon. Lots more video to come.

    Why do they call it Rainbow Gardens? Is that the Memory Grove of Wasatch County?
    It's only "science" if it supports the narrative.

    I've got no clue what you mean, but the hot springs are just 100 yards into the canyon from there, if that gives any bearing. Baring.

    You don't know what Memory Grove is renown for? I thought for sure you'd be well familiar with that.


    Shane could probably help you out...

    No, I'm straight

    Here's a climb near the peak of the trail above Weber State and Beus

    The rocky point lookout above 29th street, or the Waterfall Canyon trailhead. This is a popular stopping point for many.



    From the rocky point down towards Taylor Canyon, you'll pass the famous Ogden Christmas Tree on the trail
