Wasatch Hikers: Wednesday evening hiking group can be found every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. hiking a different trail in the Ogden area. Our creed is exercise is good for the body, mind and soul. The trails in the area are better than the gym. So if you want a group to hang with, or just have time for just one hike, we look forward to meeting a new friend. For information on our next outing visit: http://www.meetup.com/webercountyoutdoors/ and check the calendar under the meetups tab.

Wellsville Mountains hike: Saturday. The Deep Canyon Trail ascends rapidly and steadily for about three miles to the divide of the Wellsville Mountains at approximately 8,100 feet. The total elevation gain nears 3,000 feet. Some past hikers have dubbed the Wellsvilles the steepest range on earth, and new hikers will soon become believers.
