Wildflowers and raspberries: A weekend travel guide to Logan Canyon & Bear Lake
Now's the time to head north to glorious Logan Canyon and Bear Lake right downhill.
- This is Weekend Warrior, our short-tripping travel guide in and around Utah.
Why now: Tony Grove is one of the very best areas to see Utah wildflowers — and they should be peaking in the next couple of weeks.
- The Bear Lake Raspberry Days festival is coming soon — Aug. 3–5 in Garden City.
Logan Canyon is a world-class outdoor rec area, with some of the best trails in the state.
- The trail from Tony Grove to White Pine Lake is stunning, with gorgeous views of Mounts Gog and Magog, as well as carpets of wildflowers. Backcountry camping is very popular and sites tend to fill up fast.
- Jardine Juniper is an unsung prize among Utah hikes, with majestic panoramas leading to the oldest known Rocky Mountain juniper tree.
- Hit the beach at Bear Lake State Park for a swim.
Raspberries are a must-try this time of year, with fruit stands, jams and sundaes to sample.
- If you don't like your chances at the pie-eating contest, try Cody's Gastro Garage in Garden City — a classic-car-themed pub with killer shakes.
The campgrounds in Logan Canyon are great, with the Logan River rushing through to cool your heels after a long day.
