Limber Pine Nature Trail (004)
The Limber Pine Nature Trail crowns the canyon’s 7,800-foot summit and is named for what was once believed to be the oldest and largest living limber pine tree. Scientists have since discovered that this giant is actually five separate trees that have grown together for a relatively young 560 years. A refreshing hike along this loop trail will introduce you to several unique aspects of Logan Canyon’s varied terrain. Trailside interpretive signs are ideal for teaching children about the many ways plants and animals adapt to their surroundings. As you rise to the trail’s higher elevations, watch for the landscape to open, allowing you to glimpse Bear Lake’s spectacular turquoise waters in the distance. Limited parking is available at the highway turnoff.
