Logan Canyon in northern Utah holds a mountain paradise of trails, lakes, forests, trees, and beauty. Tony Grove, Naomi Peak, White Pine Lake–all beckon the hiker to explore this lesser-known area. As usual, right by the trailheads and parking areas you can be elbow-deep with other people. Just strike out along the trail into the backcountry, though, and get away from some of the madding crowds.
Summer is the time to visit for wildflowers, abundant greenery, and pleasant temperatures. I’d love to come back here in the fall someday, though. I bet there’s a veritable explosion of golds and reds on all the deciduous trees.
