Be prepared

The main destination along most popular hiking trails-Timpanogos Peak, Kings Peak, Mount Nebo, etc.-Is highest peak in the immediate area. However, when it comes to views, tallest isn't always best. For example, Lewis Peak isn't highest peak in the Wasatch Mountains between Ogden Canyon and North Ogden Divide but it does have the best views of the area and is the most majestic peak located between Mount Ogden and Ben Lomond peaks. Perhaps that's why the US Forest Service makes special 1. 5-mile spur Trail to Peak-8 031-foot above sea level-back in 1978. There are four other peaks between North Ogden and Ogden Canyon that are higher than Lewis, but all are unnamed. Tallest is 104 feet higher than Lewis at 8 136 feet above sea level, but is set back to east. Lewis Peak Trail is an extension of the North Section of Skyline Trail in Weber County. This Trail, now part of the Great Western Trail too that stretches from Canada to Mexico, is best known for its access to Ben Lomond Peak via the southern segment. However, the southern Trail to Lewis Peak, though less used than the Ben Lomond Section, is worth hike. The Lewis hike also probably requires less than half the vertical climbing Ben Lomond hike does. Lewis Peak Trail offers outstanding views of Pine View Dam, Ogden Valley, Ogden area and probably has the most spectacular views available of Ben Lomond Peak from distance. In fact, hiking Lewis may convince any doubters that Ben Lomond Peak was indeed the inspiration for Mountain of Dreams in the famous Paramount Pictures logo. Lewis Peak was named in the 1800s for Lewis W. Shurtliff, first man record to have climbed it. Why his first name was used is not know, but Shurtliff was a prominent figure in the Ogden area's early history. Shurtliff was LDS Church Bishop in Plain City and later president of Weber LDS Stake from 1883 to 1922. Looking straight east from Plain City or Harrisville, Lewis Peak is the most prominent peak. Lewis Peak Trail is generally less crowded than its Ben Lomond counterpart, but still for Memorial Day 1994, Lewis Peak had more than 50 different visitors. It is also Peak accessible about one month earlier in spring and one month later in fall than either Ben Lomond or Mount Ogden, because of its lower elevation. From downtown Salt Lake City, it's about a 75-minute drive to trailhead at the top of North Ogden Divide. Take I-15 North to Pleasant View exit and go east on 2700 North to U-89. Then go 150 feet south to 2550 North and east to Washington Blvd. Travel North to 3100 North-street that go straight east to North Ogden Divide, pave road, but steep, windy climb. The paved parking lot and restrooms are on the south side of the road.
