OverviewLocated west of Mount Ogden, Malan's Peak could be included in the hike.
It is a short, steep hike with a well - defined trail.
A bit further past the peak is Malan's Basin. There is a plaque describing the site.

MALAN HEIGHTS RESORT
Including; two story hotel, sawmill, seven
log cabins and a club house
Board & Room $6.00 per week, single meal .35 & .50

Malan Family Decendents
Nothing is left of the resort but a steam boiler, I assume ran the sawmill and some foundations of the buildings.
It is a nice spot with great views of Ogden City.
Getting ThereSeveral trailheads can acess the route up, including 27th Street and 29th Street Trailheads.
The first mile is a good warm up for the long, steep switchbacks going up the mountain side. It's a good 2.5 miles to the peak, gaining 2,100' of elevation.
A loop can be done, starting from Beus Trailhead bagging Ogden Peak and down through Malans.
Doing this loop, the trail is very faint coming down off Ogden, so have a map and compass or the like.
