Cache County Hiking

For anyone that wants to go hiking in the Cache Valley area I'd recomment a trail guide called "Cache Trails: A hiking guide for the trails of the Cache Valley, Utah area" by Jim Sinclair (Bridgerland Audubon Society). It doesn't include every single hiking trail around, but it does get most of them and it is a valuable resource. It includes info on local flora, fauna, and history along with general hiking advice.

You can purchase it at the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau (on the corner of 200 N and Main in the old red brick courthouse), the Logan Ranger's Station (at the mouth of Logan Canyon, across from the Country Club), or at Hastings. It is a small paperback that I keep in my camelbak bag at all times.

Along with good footwear, sunscreen, a jacket, and a good hydration system, it is an essential component of successful hiking in Cache Valley.

If you have any questions or concerns before hiking, biking, or camping in the Logan Canyon area, please contact the Logan Ranger District for information and updates.
