Join the fun at TrailFest 2019, a community-wide free event to inspire the community to get active, discover, play, learn, connect, and celebrate our expansive network of urban trails sponsored by Weber Pathways and Bank of Utah.
Enjoy a wide variety of free trail activities along various segments of the newly-connected Centennial Trail, a 27-mile loop spanning Weber County communities.
When and Where:
Saturday, June 22, 2019 from 8 a.m. to noon on the trails and from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Ogden Amphitheater for a health fair expo and celebration.
How to Participate in the Free Event:
Pick up a TrailFest Passport at any of the hosted trail segments (View Map) and challenge yourself to stamp your passport at as many trail checkpoints as you can!
TrailFest participants can then bring their stamped passports to the TrailFest Health and Fitness Expo at the Ogden Amphitheater for a chance to win great prizes during a drawing at 1 p.m. The Expo will feature community organization booths, great food and beverages, and healthy family-oriented activities from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The Centennial Trail is officially designated as the beautiful 27-miles loop formed by the Bonneville Shoreline, Ogden River Parkway and Weber River Parkway trails, passing through Ogden, South Ogden, Uintah, Riverdale, West Haven and Marriott-Slaterville.
