Weber Pathways is a non-profit organization in Weber County, Utah, dedicated to hiking trails, mountain biking trails, and pathways for horseback riders, cross-country skiers, snow-shoers, and other non-motorized trail users.
We are committed to the idea that non-motorized network of public pathways significantly contribute to our community's economic vitality and quality of life.
It's a great way to learn the trails, or just meet fellow trail-lovers. Public outings consist of things like hikes, dog walks, trail maintenance, snowshoeing, bird watching, trail running, mountain biking, and more!

Our thanks to REI who has helped to fund Weber Pathways' program for public outings.
Youth organizations can take advantage of our incredible trail system! Youth organizations' volunteers and staff members are invited to join us for a half-day on the trails, learning which trails are best for their youth and other interesting trail facts. Leaders are given the Weber Pathways trail map, 5-Easy Hikes brochure, information on Trail Safety, and our Trail Etiquette fliers.
At the end of the day, youth organization leaders will be able to take their youth on selected trails with confidence.

In 2005, Weber Pathways created the “Take a Hike” program to encourage hiking for children. The “Take a Hike” program is now a partnership between Weber Pathways, WSU Dept. of Health Promotion and Human Performance, and local schools to introduce elementary students to hiking in Weber County. The “Take a Hike” team will reinforce environmental stewardship, the health benefits of hiking, and encourage continued trail use.
All participants, parents, families, teachers, volunteers, and students will benefit from this project. For many children, this will be their first time hiking and/or their first time in the mountains.
There are three key goals:
(1) Address childhood obesity by introducing kids to a free, accessible, fun and adventurous way of exercising;
(2) Encourage a love of the outdoors by increasing environmental awareness;
(3) Increase pride in our community by connecting participants with their natural surroundings.
Our objectives are to provide the organization and leadership needed to allow 4th Grade school children to be exposed to the accessibility and beauty of our outdoors, to encourage environmental stewardship, and to recognize and value the health benefits of hiking while integrating selected physical education, health, and science core content along the trail.
