North Ogden Divide Road in 1914

      The view below North Ogden Divide. The road is on the north side of the canyon.

THE North Ogden, Utah Divide Road has been around for more than a century.
In a Sept. 11, 1914 report in the Ogden Standard-Examiner, Weber County Commissioners traveled by automobile over the North Ogden Divide, also called "North Ogden Canyon Road" in those days.
Their report was a "fairly good" road, though "pretty steep," with a "most pleasing" high point.
Even today this road, about seven miles south of the main route through Ogden Canyon (Utah Highway 39), is a shortcut to Eden and Liberty in Ogden Valley,.
