Route: Herd paths, Bonneville Trail, Taylor Canyon South Trail, Taylor Canyon Trail, Malan's Basin Trail, (Malans Peak), Malan's Basin Trail, Taylor Canyon Trail, herd paths

Wanting to do a lunch time jog, I opted for Malans Peak above Ogden. Starting on 27th Street, I followed a series of herd paths up to Bonneville Trail, then in error continued south to the Taylor Canyon South Trail. I soon corrected this and crossed over to the Taylor Canyon Trail. After following this gradual trail for awhile, I took a right onto Malan's Basin Trail. Though never overly steep, it was certainly steady as it ascended the mountain via switchbacks.

Eventually reaching the summit, I had excellent views in all directions. Had there been time, it would have been fun to continue up to Mt. Ogden, however I had to get back to work.
