Logan Canyon

Mile-high vertical limestone cliffs tower above dense forest, a winding Logan River, and mountain wildlife add to the picturesque canyon which ends at the turquoise waters of Bear Lake. 

During the summer locals and visitors alike enjoy a variety of outdoor sports, from fishing, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking and camping. 

Logan Canyon is also popular during the winter with more than 300 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and the oldest family run ski resort in the U.S., Beaver Mountain Ski Resort. 


Scenic Byway

The Logan Canyon Byway is lined with camping, picnicking, hiking, and fishing areas in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. A 7-mile paved drive off the highway lids to Tony Grove Lake. Wildflowers proliferate here between June and August.
