Crimson Trail

At the upper point of the Crimson Trail loop, there is a view of Logan Canyon and the Logan River. (Nate Carlisle | The Salt Lake Tribune)


This loop trail takes you from the lush green on the floor of Logan Canyon and quickly up to a good view of the upper Wasatch Front. From the trailhead, you will quickly come to a fork. Go left to go up to the view point or go right to follow the river and take the quick way to the Spring Hollow campground. If you go up, at 1.1 miles from the trailhead you will find the ridge line with the view and a second fork. Go right (down the mountain) to stay on the Crimson Trail loop or go left to keep going up the mountain for more views. The river trail offers the sites and sounds of the Logan River and some plaques discussing the geology and wildlife of the canyon. The west end of the Crimson Trail loop is at the Spring Hollow campground. Nate Carlisle

Getting there: From Logan, take Highway 89 north. About 5.3 miles out of town, look for the Guinavah-Malibu campground on your right. The campground has signs taking you a few hundred more yards to the trailhead.
