Our family has completed this hike three times now, most recently was September 2017. Our 9, 8 and 6 year-olds did well. Our 4-year-old had to be carried quite a bit. We took our time to enjoy the views etc. This hike is best enjoyed in fall, imho. The top does make me a little nervous with the children.

Hiked this trail again on Wednesday for probably my 25th time. I’ve lost count. Had a great time. It’s dry, bit we saw a few people we knew also out enjoying this trail. Great for kids 10 and older because the caves at the end have drop offs that little ones might be a little scared of.

You get a great view of the China Wall portion of the Crimson Trail on the other side of Logan Canyon.

Worth it every time and would definitely recommend this trail if you are in the area and want a good hike that will take about 4 total hours from downtown to the top and back to downtown.

beautiful

I tried to like this trail but you're just stuck behind a deer fence. I used to live in Logan and gave it a few tries. It feels like you're ether in a zoo or in some large prison camp or something!

A definite uphill battle to get there, but it had its gorgeous spots, especially the caves. My 4 year old had a tough time and had to be carried.

So . . . cave is a understatement more like wind blown hole in the side of a mountain. It is a steep trail. Also this is the only trail I have ever got a tick on. Lower ankle (lucky) stuck in hair.

Hiked this with my 12 year old daughter today. The beginning and end were quite steep but the middle was flat with great views. There was lots of shade along the way, which was nice. It was SUPER dry which I didn’t love, and you never really get away from the traffic noise in the canyon which I also didn’t love. We got surprised by a moose as we were making our way down, but he didn’t bother us. Overall, good hike but probably not one we will do again any time soon.

Nice walk. The first .2 miles is the only part I would call a hike. However, it is a nice place to go for an evening or morning walk.

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.

Shady, paved, easy walk with nice views of the river and golf course.

This is a great hike for the family. Not too difficult and some cool caves at the end.

Great trail but it's pretty difficult! it's totally worth the challenge!

Beautiful views at the top.

Great hike to bring the kids on. Make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen as much of the trail is not shaded.

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.

This is a fine hike. Not hard, small incline and your at a few formed arches and caves. I can see some marking this as a 5 star, then coming back and making it a 2 or 3 as they experience better hikes. A lot of locals seem to do this as it is easy and popular.

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.

The trail follows a deer fence.... is mixed single track, double track and is overgrown in many places. The trail and fence attempt to follow the lake Bonneville shoreline, in a due north south line so the trail goes up and down. Trail is exposed to the sun with little shade, nice view of Cache Valley to the west.

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 trail weaves back and forth across a rough rocky "road". At the end of the road the trail continues, which I rode another couple of miles on. Turns out that goes into a wilderness area, but it is not marked. I rode it on a weekday very little vehicle traffic or bicycle traffic.

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.

Great hike for the family. My four year old little girl was able to make it to the caves so that might give you an idea of the difficulty.

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
