    Possible move to Ogden area

    Curious about where to live and where not to live in Ogden. I lived in Roy/Clearfield 20 years ago and it was nice back then. No idea what it's like now. My job would be right off I-15 in the Marriott/Slaterville area northwest of Ogden proper. Waddyall think?

    Thanks!

    We are e-looking at a couple apartments on this corner and a street view walk around the neighborhood doesn't look too bad except for the title loans place lol: https://maps.google.com/?q=loc%3A+Wa...et+Ogden+UT+US

    I am fixing to move to Ogden in a few weeks from now myself and am looking for a place to rent.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    That place I linked above has 2 apartments available. We could be neighbors!

    Look east of Harrison Blvd. There are some nice rentals by WSU. I recently saw some condos for rent by Mt Ogden Park - great location on the east bench.

    Suppose I should elaborate a little. We are a married couple in our late 20s/early 30s. No kids or pets with no intention of having either. So we're trying to keep it simple.

    I checked out the area east of Harrison. Looks like mostly 3 and 4 bedrooms available in that area. Way too much for us.

    The farther east you go, the less sketchy the neighborhood tends to be and the closer you are to the trails. I would really look around for a 1 or 2 bedroom bungalow/apartment/duplex on the east bench.

    When we moved to the area, we rented a place off of 35th and Washington. My wife was too sketched out by the vibe on that block before I got to town, and she bailed.

    There are also some great mother-in-law type rental spots on the east bench. Search KSL classified listings.

    35th and Wash is busy and can be less than desirable for some.

    If you like the feel/vibe of downtown, look further north around the Ogden River. Access to the mountain trails/bike park is good via the River Parkway Path. It is also an area of town that is undergoing major improvement and turning out to be a nice location - really easy to walk/bike to downtown.

    Nice! Welcome "home." Settle in and then go ride! Or better yet, go ride, then unpack as you go. What's the rush, right?

    I wish I had the energy to go ride! I need a day or two to recover from that 1300 mile drive.

    Looks like the perfect way to get rid of long-drive-dead-leg. Spin them back to life!

    I'll be moving back to UT in a few weeks myself. I'm gonna live in South SL since my new job is in Orem. I had no desire to live down there given the dryness of the place and the two colleges in the area as well. I'll only be a couple of miles west of Little Cottonwood Canyon where I'm renting. I can't wait to get back there...

    Nice trail pics! Is that a Giant VT? I rode an '04 VT1 until last November and finally bought a new Giant Trance 27.5. I loved that bike and feel it was way ahead of its time when it come onto the market. Good luck to you!

    In case any one else moving to Ogden is reading this...

    East of Harrison, but north of 12th st. is much more affordable than south of 12th, while having equal, or better trail access. Heck, I literally have a trailhead in my backyard, with access to almost 80 miles of singletrack.

    Keep in mind thunder mountain is down by Bryce canyon. 4.5 hour drive from Ogden.

    But when you get here you can ride this:

    Will have to see how my budget treats me when I am settled in.. but I would love to ride all those trails as soon as I can... we should meet up and ride as I am always looking for new friends and I have found riding with as many friends makes more trips feasible and doable not to mention alot more fun.

    The bottom pic is from the top of the service road on the south side of Ogden canyon. Got there from 22nd street trailhead. From there I went back down to the rainbow gardens trail and crossed the street to the bike path crossing the river. Rode up the canyon trail on the north side of 12th street where I took the top pic.
