“The Logan Backpack Trail makes a figure-eight with a north and south loop and is marked with red blazes. ”— Kristen Arendt
The second trailhead can be found below the Pine Lake Dam. Backpackers can camp at the fire tower through reservation at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry.
The loops of this trail converge at the Brush Ridge Fire Tower where runners can get a look at the deciduous forest on all sides for miles. The spillway at Pine Lake and Brush Ridge Fire Tower are considered trailheads for the Logan Backpack Trail.
The trail is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. There are primitive campsites for backpackers as well as access to the campground.
