GPS Coordinates: Art Nord trailhead--12 T[masked]/[masked];

Introduction: This gentle meander through the trees makes for a pleasant winter outing. Not too long and not too steep, this trail can be pleasant for snowshoers of all abilities. Parking at Art Nord trailhead is easy to access, and on a clear day the southern views of stark, snow-kissed mountains speak of awe. Especially if you can contrast a gorgeous, blue, winter sky.

Directions From Salt Lake City take I-15 North to the 12th street exit in Ogden. Head East on 12th street all the way to the mouth of the canyon and keep going east. You will continue past the Pine view Dam and the turn off will be the Old Snow basin Road, Hwy 226 follow this road until it dead ends at the trail head.

Trail Description: The trail starts between the Art Nord trail kiosks, dips down to the creek, crosses a couple of foot bridges and then weaves its way west next to the Old Snowbasin road. The junction for Ice Box Canyon and Maples trailhead sits about one mile up the trail. Follow the sharp curve in the trail and head left, or southeast. From this point blue diamond markers are nailed to the trees to mark the trail that will lead you to Maples trailhead. Follow the blue diamonds for the next two miles. The markers are placed at regular intervals so you should not go too long without seeing the next one. Along this route you will cross a number of bridges as you weave your way across the lower elevations and to the base of Snowbasin Ski Resort. This trail is a favorite with cross-country skiers as well.

Recommended equipment Snowshoes, tracks or snow boots, Dress in layers, sun glasses, beani, sun screen!!, water, snacks, gloves, camera
