OGDEN — A popular hot spring area in Ogden Canyon will be regularly patrolled by police, who will issue trespassing citations to anyone who attempts to visit the hot pots.

The Weber County Sheriff’s Office said the owner of the hot pots authorized police to enforce a no-trespassing policy on their private property, starting Wednesday.

Police said no parking and no trespassing signs have been installed near the hot pots’ entrance. There will also be more police patrols in the area to enforce the no-trespassing order.

The hot spots were technically not open to the public even though they were a popular place for visitors across the country to visit, according to police.

In early February, the Ogden Fire Department rescued two unconscious people from the springs after they suffered “medical episodes.”
