Weber River Adventures
Tubing the Weber River presents one of the best ways to beat the heat in Northern Utah. The most popular route among tubers is the Henefer to Taggart route. Tubing the river can be relatively inexpensive if you already have your tube and life jacket, but you can always rent anything you need as well. Ready to cool off and have a splashing good time? Here is a description of the route and a complete list of everything you will need.
You Will Need:
- Proper swimwear and shoes.
- Inner tubes.
- Cars located at both the drop-off and the pick-up locations.
- Life jackets are required by Utah law to be worn at all times while on the river.
- Snacks and drinks are optional but highly recommended.
- And of course, a cooler and/or bag to hold your treats and drinks.
The entire Henefer to Taggart route takes a little more than two hours to complete. Make sure to check the weather before you go. You do not want a storm sneaking up on you while you are on the water. Note that some rocky and rapid portions may be daunting for young children. Teens and older are a-okay for this trip.
Just 30 miles east of Ogden, you put your tubes in the water off of exit 112 or the Henefer exit on Interstate 84. After you exit, go to the north side of the highway and follow the road as it curves to the east. Although there is a small put-in spot just off the road, a larger area is located less than a half mile down the road.
Exit 108 to Taggart off of interstate 84 is the standard pick-up spot. Park your vehicle in any spot you can find and look for the rapids upstream to see what you’ve signed up for. This spot is also a great area for a photo opportunity with the clan.
