Hiking

Cache Valley

Countless interesting trails throughout the Wasatch-Cache National Forest and Cache Valley combine with wonderful weather during spring, summer, and fall to make hiking a delight for all ages and abilities. Logan Canyon boasts some of the most picturesque landscapes anywhere. Spring Hollow is located about 4.3 miles up the canyon and is an easy half-mile walk to one of the region’s most photographed streams. An 11-mile trail winds its way to the 1,500-year-old Jardine Juniper tree. A popular 2-mile hike to the Wind Caves offers an outstanding example of a series of arches and rooms formed by wind and ice erosion. The 1-mile Limber Pine loop trail, located at the summit of Logan Canyon, features interpretive information designed especially for children.

Box Elder County

Throughout the county there are numerous hiking trails. More information about non-motorized trails can be obtained from the land management agency.

Bear Lake

As a spring makes its way into Bear Lake, early leaves and flowers welcome you as you ride or walk a lake or mountain trail.  Temperatures are mild, even during the middle of the summer, so hiking is pleasant.  The fall months of September and October are some of the prettiest and most scenic with brightly colored leaves and the tranquility of the lake.  The canyons on the west side of Bear lake offer challenging and fun trails through mountain wilderness.
