Great hike today. Surprisingly cool weather, and gorgeous wildflowers. Now is the PERFECT time to see the flowers. We spotted many columbines, forget-me-nots, wild rose, fireweed, penstemon, bluebells, golden aster, indian paintbrush, yarrow, geraniums. Also a bluebird, a golden finch, a doe, and hundreds of butterflies. The peak is rewarding, and the journey itself is worth it.

This is very similar to Bloomington Lake, but the road is paved all the way up to the lake. The drive is gorgeous. There were many, including us, taking our kayaks into the water, and many fishermen. It was very quiet and serene. The air is so fresh and crisp with smells of foliage. The Cliffs next to the mountain lake is gorgeous. We went in July and the wildflowers are all in bloom of a rainbow of colors, all around the lake. On one end we found a large, gorgeous beaver dam with a beaver residing in it and coming out late in the day. There was a young male moose near there at the edge of the water. Many people were swimming, the water is very full of plant life and fish and bugs on the water, we did not desire to swim, but wade and kayak and take a quiet break just looking. On the opposite end is a thick wooded forest with tall evergreens perfect for hiding from the heat of the day and putting up hammocks to take a nap and read. Beyond there is a beautiful campground. It is worth going and enjoying for all ages. There is a path around the lake. On one side it is well worn and cleared that a stroller or wheelchair can even make it around to the forested end. This is a a gorgeous hidden away spot we fell in love with.

Great hike! If you want to avoid snow you definitely can. FYI if you “send it” and slide down snow hills you will end up bloody. Other than that it is a great hike with great views!

The Jardine Juniper is impressive. The hike... not as impressive. I am not putting this hike down, I did enjoy it. I just think the actual hike is very average. No amazing waterfall to see. No pointy peaks in the background. Yet, it does have an amazing tree that is 1500 - 3000 years old depending on who you listen to. That is pretty amazing and really makes you think. I am not totally sure if it is even alive anymore as I only saw maybe one small green leaf.

It’s very pretty and very doable hike.

Nice area coming out of Tony Grove. We went in July when the flowers were all over. However, to me the apex of the hike was a let down. You get to the top and you see sort of a bad side of Cache. The views from the Wellsvilles is a lot better. For a local hike this is a fine hike, but if I was in charge of planning a hike that would impress someone from out of state this would not be on my list.

For a mountain biker, this trail has steep pitches initially, is very busy, has very steep pitches initially and is full of runners, walkers and hikers. Not my cup of tea.

The views are amazing! My husband and I hike with our 2 kids 10 and 11. This hike was a bit harder than expected. Mostly because everyone we talked to said it was about the same as White pine but it's not. the hard part on white pine last 30 min and this hike is mostly like that the whole way. We finished and will do again just not as often as some of the others. the elevation gain was 1,919 according to my GPS and we totaled 7.3 miles with very little walking around at the top.

Like Providence Canyon, I call this a Blue because of the climb. There really isn't anything technical about this trail. While it may not be a big test of your riding skills, it is a test of your aerobic fitness. There are really no breaks on the climb other than the stops you make yourself. The constant five mile climb is rewarded with a very fun and fast downhill. Be cautious in getting too rowdy as there are hikers, equestrians, and other bikers coming uphill sometimes. While I wouldn't take a total noob on this trail, a beginner with several rides behind them and a reasonable level of fitness will be fine. There are some small rock gardens on the trail, but minimal line choice skills are fine. When you get to the loop where you have the choice to ride the "Scenic Route" or the Shady Route", I recommend finishing the uphill on the "Scenic Route" and starting your descent on the "Shady Route." It is smooth and fast.

One of my favorite trails in Logan

So close to being ready for summer! Had a great great hike on the trail, but definitely dropped in the snow to my upper thigh a couple times so be careful and bring a friend just in case.
Unparalleled views of the valley at the top.

I always seemed to hike crimson on hot days in the heat of the day, but I went at sunrise today and loved it. The switch backs will get ya, but after it's smooth sailing and some of the best views of the canyon. Truly beautiful trail.
Be careful with dogs on leashes - I've seen multiple rattlesnakes and elk here in the last couple years and they have bear signs up at the trailhead.

I really enjoyed this hike a lot. The hike was almost 11 miles long but it didn't seem that long. On the way in we took the scenic route and on the way out we took the shady route. I would say both are equally beautiful. This is a must do hike!

Great family friendly trail! Our 5yo loves it. I would rate it at moderate on some parts as clamoring over roxks is required.

My husband and I completed this hike on June 10.

Someone in a previous comment mentioned that this was "the perfect hike." We would have to agree!

We started at 9AM and enjoyed the sights of beautiful wildflowers, tree-covered mountains, scenic vistas of Logan Canyon. The trail was mostly either flat or slightly inclined, so we didn't need even to stop for water.

The tree itself is interesting for only a minute or two. The real beauty of this hike is in the journey.

The trail is approximately 11 miles, but it didn't feel that long. It probably helped that we moved at a pretty decent pace.

We didn't see hardly anyone on our way up, but on our way down we saw probably a dozen people. We finished at 1PM, spending a total of 4 hours on the trail.

Would recommend this to anyone!

Naomi Peak is stunning. Trail is in decent shape with a some lingering snow patches on the last mile and a half. Some avoidable, some not. Only postholed 2 or 3 times. Almost summer conditions.

I had not expected this hike to be that challenging. Boy was I wrong, the last mile was tough! I made it but only made 30 minute mile on the hike up. The scenery wasn’t as spectacular as other hikes in the valley, but the wildflowers were amazing!

First mile or so is a bit tedious but it’s a really great trail after that, and well worth it to make it to the tree.

Beautiful wildflowers in June. We spent 5 hours of our day but well worth it. Too long for small children if you’re wondering. It was hot in the afternoon. We packed a lunch and six water bottles and drank them all. I will go again. There are some amazing views and the tree is cool also. We wished we had a Mountain bike for the coast downhill coming back.

this hike was absolutely beautiful around the lake. Although the snow is still heavy there was a lot of places where it was a little difficult to Traverse, mostly because I didn't have the right shoes on but still very doable. It was a gorgeous day and definitely worth the trip!

So beautiful! Super easy it does get busy in the summer.

Great trail. Very steep from the Guinavah camp ground though. Would recommend taking it from the spring hollow campground - it is a much smaller grade. The views were amazing once at the top. At multiple points you can see up and down the canyon. You can also look across and see the wind cave (another very popular hike in Logan canyon).

Not a bad trail for getting some extra miles in with Green Canyon Trail. Nothing technical or particularly difficult about it. The other sections of the Bonnville Shoreline Trail south of it starting at the Dry Canyon trailhead (BST: Deer Fence, BST: Hyrum Section) are more interesting from a mountain biking perspective.

Beautiful views! A little scary for those afraid of heights

I really enjoyed the scenery on this hike but I must say the the All Trails map is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. After reading another review that mentioned the map being horribly incorrect I decided to try for myself. That review was not wrong, the map line doesn’t follow the Trail well at all and when you get about 2 miles into it it is completely unusable. Great trail though!

Did this hike with my wife, kids, and puppy today. 5 year old did full loop by herself. Great local hike and easy to get to. Pretty busy hike and you never really get away from the traffic of the canyon. This is one of the better Logan area hikes.

Tried to hike it late in the day, but couldn't manage it. Beautiful scenery. The trail is pretty much unmarked, at least if you're hiking it clockwise. The trail map shown here didn't match up well with the actual trail. GPS wouldn't work inside the steeper canyons, so I ended up turning back rather than get lost with nightfall approaching. Watch out for rattlesnakes.

Breathtaking

beautiful but easy and short.
A great place for picnics and just relaxing days by the lake. Not exactly a hiker's trail.
