Runner Notes

Keep your eye on the trail especially on the return trip. It can be easy to take in the scenery and roll an ankle.

Description

The trail is well-maintained singletrack that runs along the Temple Fork. This area has abundant beaver activity which can often lead to downed trees across the trail, but it also makes for a lot of great scenery and wildlife. The trail does have s steady climb but low grades throughout. The colors in fall are spectacular.

This trail leads to a small clearing with some informational placards as well as old equipment from when the wood was being harvested to build the Logan LDS Temple.

The trail does have some loose rocks and the occasional root. If you stray off trail at all watch out for ground squirrel holes.

Flora & Fauna

There are a fair number of wildflowers, aspen trees that provide great fall colors, beaver activity is abundant and if you are lucky maybe you will spot one at work.
