Trail Description

Logan Canyon Trailhead (1.75 Miles -dirt and paved)

From the new pedestrian underpass head west down Canyon Rd. Go around the dam and at the bottom of the hill enter the Utah Water Research Lab parking lot. Cross the bridge and make your way around the south side of the building. At the back of the building the trail climbs west up the hill. The trail crosses the end of Summac Dr. before climbing to the top of the hill. At the top of the hill the trail dumps out in the West Quail Park. Head south on Quail Way and then east on Mountain Road. Mountain Road ends at the Logan Dry Canyon Trailhead. Logan City is working to find a better alignment for this section.

Logan Dry Canyon Trailhead (2.8 Miles -dirt)

Climb the hill on the south side of the road to the power lines, follow the fence south.  In 1.4 miles pass two small caves on the east side of the trail. Two miles from Dry Canyon the trail passes the Fox Ridge access gate. The trail continues for another mile and then decends along the fence into Providence Canyon. Cache County is working to improve and sign the deer fence trail from Dry Canyon to Blacksmith Fork Canyon as part of the BST.

Providence Canyon Trailhead (1.9 Miles -dirt)

Decend the canyon road for 100 ft, then the trail climbs steeply above the water tanks and continues along the fence past a fenced in spring to Millville Canyon.

Millville Canyon Trailhead (3 Miles -dirt)

Cross the canyon road and climb over the locked gate to enter the Millville Canyon elk feed area.  This section of the trail is closed from January 1 to April 31.  Follow the fence past the feed barn and above the coyote research center.  The trail turns and rolls down into Blacksmith Fork Canyon.  Jump the gate and cross the small spring fed stream to reach the highway. Cache County is planning to reroute the trail around the spring.
