Trail Information

Highlights

Peter Sinks Trail is anything but just "another trail" in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. Just a short drive from Logan, Utah lies this mysterious sink. Have you ever been below an anti-tree line? Have you ever felt below freezing temperatures in the middle of the warmer months? How about a drop of 15-20 degrees in a matter of minutes? All of these interesting facts are what bring people to this incredibly odd location. Aside from the sinks themselves, this trail is one not to miss with views from Logan Canyon to Bear Lake. The trail winds through pine forest as you reach the highest point. Once you gain views of the sinks below, you will start your descent. Cruising through the valley gives you awesome views of the ridgeline that you were just on. Shortly after, you will climb back up to end the loop. This off-road trail is definitely one of a kind and is highly recommended if you are in the area. Combine it with other nearby trails for a fun weekend, or zip out for the day.

Great trail, definitely need lift and good articulation. A couple of spots very deep ruts from washout.

Open according to USFS. Downed trees are possible on the side spurs, so carry a saw/chainsaw if you wish to venture down the lesser used trails.

The trail was awesome. My wife and I decided to stop on the way from Logan to bear lake. We took our bone stock 2006 Chevy trailblazer, 29 inch tires, low range transfer case, and a factory auto locking rear end. And we needed all of the factory tricks. Likely due to erosion the ledges created by the roots were in some places 12+ inches and we got pretty crossed up in some places making the locker nearly necessary. No damage to report.
