Road cyclists pedal out to the long, flat country roads of scenic Cache Valley or venture up Logan and Blacksmith Fork canyons. Mountain bikers can spend an afternoon on the 9-mi round-trip from Wood Camp, in Logan Canyon, to the 1,500-year-old Jardine juniper tree that grows on a high ridge offering views of Wyoming and Idaho.
Red Bridge–River Trail. Just a few miles up Logan Canyon, the wide passageway of the Red Bridge–River Trail continues 4¼ miles on the south side of the canyon along the Logan River. Logan, UT.
Naomi Peak. Mountain bikers and hikers alike can access a prime wilderness area via the 3-mile route from Tony Grove Lake to the summit of Naomi Peak. In the Wellsville Mountains a 2-mile trail climbs steeply from Maple Bench to Stewart Pass, a lofty ridge along the migration route of eagles and hawks; on a clear day the view from here extends for more than 80 miles. Tony Grove Rd., Logan, UT. From Logan take Hwy. 89 northeast to Tony Grove Rd. (19¼ miles) and follow that for 7 miles to Tony Grove Lake. www.utah.com/hike/naomi_peak.htm.
