Hiking to Naomi Peak, Logan Canyon

Most people make the summit from the trail starting at Tony Grove Lake, but you can also access the peak from Dry Canyon on the West side of the mountain range. Starting from Tony Grove is on the East side of the mountains and travels through many wildflowers in early summer, a rock amphitheater, several meadows, and offers breathtaking views of Cache Valley and the surrounding peaks.

What you see just over that pass is amazing! You still can’t see Naomi Peak, but the views are great. It almost has a feel of the Sierras, only on a smaller scale.

Working our way up the rocky trail. Even though we started hiking at 8:30 am, it was warming up quickly. Next time I would start by 6 am to beat the heat.

One small scramble first. The dogs didn’t need any assistance, as they could jump up all this alone.

I brought my book, “Hiking Utah’s County High Points,” with me, as this was my very first county high point I ever hiked in 2016! I didn’t even know it was a high point at the time. It was enjoyable to come back and celebrate the first anniversary of my book! I’m so glad that even though Charlie is 10 he could hike this with me again.
