Highlights

Highlight: Millville Canyon
Incredible sights and endless camping are just a few of the features of this beautiful off-road trail near Logan, Utah. Situated within the Bear River Mountain Range, this trail will wind you up from the city of Millville, past Logan Peak, and over to a large network of trails including Providence Canyon, Temple Canyon, and Old Ephraim's Grave. Whether you are hunting, escaping the heat of the city, or just looking for a nice relaxing day, Millville Canyon gives you access to it all. As you make your way up to Logan Peak, you are kept in shade ascending through the trees. There are a number of viewpoints from which you can look west down over Millville, or east over Blacksmith Fork Canyon. After you pass Logan Peak, you are near the center of this mountain range and can choose a number of trails to run. With access to popular hunting areas, it is sure to be busy from the start of the fall season until the first snow. Cold temperatures and high elevation make this trail accessible only 6 months of the year, but this gorgeous trail is well worth the drive.

Mapping Crew - Utah

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, he's only been off-roading since he was 16 but fell in love immediately. He attended college in Denver for Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management and wheeled in Colorado for 4 years, but ended up moving back home to Salt Lake City. He currently works in an off-road shop and spends his free time doing anything he can to stay busy, which is usually working on his jeep or playing music. Outside of off-roading, he is an avid whitewater rafter and outdoor cook. Camping at least every other weekend in any season is a normal year. The further from civilization, the better. Bring on the memories!
