Logan Ranger District

Logan Ranger District

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.

Information Center: Logan Cave
The cave is gated and closed.  The cave was closed to the public on Oct. 1, 1997 to ensure the viability of a rare and special biological community of Townsend's Big-Eared Bats that is located in Logan Cave.  The bats are particularly vulnerable to human disturbance during their periods of mating, hibernation, and maternity colony, which runs from October to August each year.  The Big-Eared Bat is listed as a sensitive species by both the Forest Service and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.  To aid with protecting this species during their vulnerable period, it is prohibited to go into or within 250 feet of the mouth of Logan Cave.
