Logan Ranger District
Counties: Box Elder, Cache, and Rich
Located in northern Utah's Cache Valley, the Logan Ranger District is a great starting point for adventuring outside. The District is home to Mount Naomi and Wellsville Mountain Wilderness Areas, the Logan Canyon Scenic Byway (Highway 89) and the Mount Naomi Peak National Recreation Trail. The District is also a scenic gateway to Bear Lake to the east and Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks to the north.
Outdoor enthusiasts can participate in a vast range of activities on the District. In the summer, activities include hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, OHV riding as well as long time traditions such as hunting and fishing. The onset of winter doesn't slow down the action. Once the ground is blanked with a thick layer of snow, visitors can snowmobile, cross country ski or snow shoe across the District's infamous powder.
Wildlife and Plants
The Logan Ranger District hosts a nationally significant wildlife and plant corridor, linking ecosystems to the north and south. The Wellsville Mountain Wilderness Area is well known for its raptor migrations. The lower part of Logan Canyon is designated as a special interest botanical area. The cliff walls of Logan Canyon are home to many native and diverse plants found only in this canyon including Maguire's Primrose (Primula maguirei L.O. Williams), a federally listed threatened species.
