Hiking The Jardine Juniper Trail in Logan Canyon, Utah

junipertraillogan9

The Jardine Juniper Trail, an 11 mile (roundtrip) hike, leads you to the oldest living tree in Utah, a popular landmark of the Logan Canyon. The age of this Rocky Mountain juniper tree (hence the name of the trail) is estimated at over 1500 and up to 3000 years old, depending on the source.

The trail is used for hiking, mountain biking, trail running, and horseback riding, and it offers great views of the Logan Canyon, the Cottonwood Canyon, and the Bear Lake Valley. It also has beautiful meadows, wildflowers, and fir and aspen groves. The colours in the fall are breathtaking too.  Continue reading “Hiking The Jardine Juniper Trail in Logan Canyon, Utah”

What we didn’t realize is that the loop includes the Riverside Nature Trail and a little piece of trail to get to the beginning of Crimson Trail making the whole trip about 4.5 miles. Also, the trail was not an easy trail with an elevation gain of about 1000 feet and lots of steep, snowy, icy, and I must say, treacherous areas.  Continue reading “Hiking The Crimson Trail in Logan, Utah”
