Description

From the parking lot, take the short section of dirt road around the north side of the retention basin and then past the picnic areas where the trail starts to go up. The trail continues on past a National Forest signboard area and then a couple of gates, and from there, the trees start to come in a little bit closer around the trail, offering good shade during the day.

The trail continues up eventually passing through a large grove of aspens and then, when you emerge from the grove, the trail starts to switchback up until you get to the top of a large knoll with very large trees on top of it. The trail continues on until you reach a junction with the South Syncline Trail, which goes off to the right and goes around to the south side of Logan Peak. The actual Logan Dry Canyon trail continues up and then cuts to the left and starts to ascend up to the ridge that sits on the north side of Dry Canyon. This trail quickly leaves the vegetated forests of Dry Canyon for an exposed hillside covered in sagebrush and some scattered trees. Because the hillside is more barren, it offers amazing views of Cache Valley and the surrounding mountains. The trail crosses over a small talus pile and then also passes a small spring and eventually reaches the ridge, where the trail ends and the Logan Dry-Mill Hollow Trail begins.

Flora & Fauna

Plenty of scrub oak and maple that turn beautiful colors in the fall, lots of birds and other critters if you are lucky enough to see them.
