Locals call it "the valley," as if it were the only valley in the world. It's sleepy and slow, and if it had sidewalks they'd roll them up early, but once you see the valley, anchored by Pineview Reservoir, surrounded by the spectacular Wasatch Mountains, and home to the quaint pioneer towns of Huntsville, Eden, and Liberty, you'll see why residents feel this way.
With its world-class skiing, accessible water sports, great fishing, golf, climbing, hiking, biking, and camping, the Ogden Valley is a recreation mecca still largely waiting to be discovered.
East of the reservoir lies the village of Huntsville, which counts about 600 residents, a couple of clay beaches, and the oldest saloon in the state. The 19th-century home of former LDS Church president David O. McKay is the primary historical attraction. Although Huntsville was central to the Ogden Valley of the 19th and 20th centuries, Eden is the bustling center of today's valley. At or near its main crossroads, you'll find the valley's only grocery story and a horseshoe of cabins housing local shops and quick bites.
