Description
Waypoints (1)

This gem is close in proximity to First Dam and Utah State University. With sweeping views of the Wellsville Mountains, Utah State, First Dam, and the Logan Temple, it is a must do, especially early in the morning, or near sunset. Park at First Dam, go through the tunnel that goes under Highway 89, and make your way up the switchbacks to the top of the hill. This short jaunt is the only moderate hiking on the whole trail. Once you make the top of the hill, you will see the Logan Country Club on your left, the Bonneville Shoreline Trail straight ahead, and the Highline Trail up canyon marked by a road gate. Head up canyon. Parts of the trail have been protected by railing, but most of the trail does not have protection. Exercise caution due to the steep drop offs. The trail eventually meets up with Highway 89 (marked by another road gate). Return the way you came, or you can head approximately 200 yards up canyon to a parking area that the River Trail runs through, and make your way down canyon on that trail. If you choose to return via the River Trail, be sure to take the bridge junction approximately 150 yards near the River Trail Trailhead and run under highway 89, and take this trail past the power plant, and through the Ray Hugie Hydro Park.

Beautiful! A little steep at the very beginning but the rest of the hike is flat and smooth.

HikingGreat!IcyNo shadeSnow

This trail has beautiful views of the mountains. There is some uphill hiking at the beginning, but after that, the trail is flat and easy to hike. There was some ice and snow along the path when I went, but it wasn't difficult to walk across. The trail is right next to the highway so you will see and hear cars somewhat, although there weren't many cars when I went.

Awesome trail, so pretty in the snow. We didn't have time to go the full way because it was getting dark but enjoyed what we did. Snowy but not icy.

HikingGreat!No shade

Great for morning or evening hiking, there is no shade. The trail is wide and well-maintained, making it a really nice, easy hike. If you want to introduce friends or family from out-of-town to hiking, this is a great trail! Pretty views of the rock formations, and a nice look into cache valley. If you’re a peak bagger or vert chaser, this isn’t the hike for you.

HikingNo shade

Not much shade, not very interesting, too close to the highway for my liking. It’s probably an awesome trail for locals taking a run or bike ride but for trail hiking, it’s very disappointing. The side trail we took ran through a tunnel and across an aqueduct, both with lots of graffiti (pretty cool but some not kid-friendly). Those were really the highlight of the trail. We came down via River Trail, which is a nicer trail with more shade and prettier surroundings. Still too close to the highway though.

Nice trail for an early morning or late night walk/run. Encountered a rattlesnake on the last portion of the trail so it is critical that you are alert to your surroundings.
