First hike in the Logan area, nice and easy one to start off with. Includes lots of great views and we even enjoyed a little picnic on the rocks next to the tranquil river. The view at the top is very beautiful 360 degrees around.

Great little walk along the Logan river. Watch for dog poop seems not many clean up after their pets. Easy but beautiful walk with a few points of access to do some fishing. Overall a great afternoon of hiking and fishing...

This is a great trail for walking, running, and biking. It is probably one of the most popular hikes near Logan. The switchbacks (a couple hundred yards up canyon) provide some nice variety and moderately gains in elevation. Bridger Lookout can be accessed by Bridger Campground which takes you up higher on the mountain and will spit you back down at Spring Hollow Campground. The map shown cuts the trail short, ending at a campground area below third dam. If you walk the road up canyon it will turn back to trail taking you to Spring Hollow Campground. From there the trail continues on the East side of the campground which will take you to the Guinavah-Malibu Campground.

We were visiting Utah for a pickleball tournament and the Logan River trails were recommended as a great place to find some hiking ventures. This trail did not disappoint! It is a total of a little over 6.5 miles if you take the lookout turn off (can't remember the name of it). Such beautiful scenery and you really are hiking on the side of a mountain! The trail is fairly easy as far as navigation and ruggedness. Most of the trail is well marked and maintained until you hit the "less kept" portion about 1/2 way in. This is more of a typical hiking trail with rocks, uphill climbs, narrower path, etc. I cannot emphasize enough the beauty of this hike! Until the veer into the mountain, you are walking right beside of the river. So serene and relaxing. Would be a great place to stop and have a picnic or read a book by the flowing river. Definitely recommend if you are in the area!

Great trail for walking - definitely not that difficult. We had 20+ youth so this was a good choice.

Tips for Out of town visitors or joggers:

I ran this trail this morning. I'm not an experienced trail runner but I needed somewhere to do a longer marathon training run, found this one through AllTrails. Ran it out and back twice. It has much more uphill segments than advertised-- probably doesn't make much of a difference if you're walking it, but you'll certainly notice if you're running. Good practice for a downhill race on the way back though!

Also if you're from out of town and were confused as to where the trail head is, Google Maps tells you the River trail is on the golf course near Providence. There is a ~1 mile trail (I think it's actually cement) that is also called the Logan River Trail, sometimes called the Logan River Walk Trail. If you are looking for the trail you are on this page for, it starts just a few miles after the mouth of the canyon.

Also, if you use Google Maps from the location on this website it almost takes you to the right parking spot, but most people on the trail were coming from the next parking area by the "Cache Valley" sign. Park there, and the gate to the trail is just across the street. If you do park at the location this website provides, it will bring you to a parking area with a nearby sign for the Logan River. There is an asphalt beginning of trail that starts at Ray Hugie Hydro Park. Following that path for about a mile (has a big hill if you're running) and you will connect to this trail just after the bridge.

Hope this answers someone's question as I spent far too much time trying to figure out what trail this really was and where to go!

Great to go run or bike but if you want to hike, don't waste your time! It was a long boring trail for me! Go up the canyon more and do the wind caves instead!

Great trail for family's . My hubby and I took our 9 month old in her stroller and we did most of the trail pretty easy in about 2 hours !

Real mellow trail up to second dam. Pretty crowded but usually pretty cool in temp.

18 family members enjoyed this hike. ages ranging from 3 to 58. the boulders were a challenge but we'll worth the hike.

It's an easy hike/jog/biking. The first bit of the trail from parking is really gravely and rocky, if you run in five-fingers / minimalist shoes it's a little precarious at this point. It's also a well traveled, BUSY trail with lots of bicycles and people with dogs OFF their leashes. Perfect afternoon hike with lots of tree cover and the river right next to the trail

It was a great morning walking this pleasant trail. It's a pretty basic nature walk, not much of a workout.

Was nice and relaxing. Windy today, but great for a good walk with the pups.

This is a pretty trail that follows the Logan river. I helped make the trail in the 1970s! It is shady and fairly easy.

Lovely trail but very popular and sometimes even crowded. I run it early in the morning and find walkers, bikers and runners. It is shady and easy and follows the pretty Logan River.

I LOVE this trail. Mostly shaded, beautiful trees. It follows the side of the river and there are points where you can go down to the water. I pretty much always used this trail as a running trail; it's mostly flat and only has slight uphill and downhill at times. Popular trail, but not over populated. You will see many people walking, running and or riding bikes on this trail. I would visit weekly if not more often.

a very casual ride, not much elevation. more of a walking path.

Beautiful river but very cold. Rick's Spring flows into this as well. It is very pretty and makes for a good drive and a few trails (Crimson and Spring Hollow) are by there. Plenty of camping spaces around there through Logan Canyon.

Walked this trail after doing Wind Cave. It was easy as long as you pay attention to the signs posted. This trail head can take you into Crimson Trail or up the China Wall.

Good running/walking trail. I have not biked it, but it is nice and wide in most places.
