Tony Grove Lake, Utah, Hiking in Utah with Dogs
Tony Grove Lake is a popular summer hang out and camping area in Logan Canyon, Utah, about and hour and half drive from SLC. Not only is it dog friendly (off leash) and kid friendly, you can take your kayak or SUP on the lake, there's camping on the southern end of the lake or at the official campground, there's picnicking, hiking, fishing, and will definitely offer something for everyone in the family. Many people head for for just the day to explore Naomi Peak and White Pine Lake as well, or bring a camp chair and enjoy 
nature along the lake.

Hiking to Naomi Peak, Logan Canyon, Utah
Naomi Peak (9,983 ft) is the highest point in the Bear River Mountains, in Northern Utah. Most people make the summit from the trail starting at Tony Grove Lake, but you can also access the peak from Dry Canyon, which is on the West side of the mountain range. Starting from Tony Grove is on the East side of the mountains, and travels through many wildflowers in early summer, a rock amphitheater, several meadows, and offers breathtaking views of Cache Valley and the surrounding peaks.

Backpacking to White Pine Lake, Logan Canyon, Utah
Backpacking to White Pine Lake in Logan Canyon can be described in one word - gorgeous! Or beautiful, or awesome, well...you get the idea. This was my first time to White Pine Lake, and I figured I would make the most of my time here and do a quick overnighter at the lake. White Pine Lake is surrounded by a large cliff wall to the West, Mt. Magog to the south, and Mt. Gog to the North.

Lambs Canyon

Hiking Lambs Canyon, Utah
Lambs Canyon is located off I-80 after passing through Parley's Canyon, but before you reach Jeremy Ranch. Lambs Canyon is part of the county Watershed, and therefore, dogs are not allowed. There are multiple signs saying no dogs, and there was even a county sheriff patrolling the area as well, so don't even attempt to bring them up here. This is probably why even though I've lived in Utah for 3 years, but never hiked here, was because I can't bring my dog. But sometimes, you have to leave them at home, and since it was a very hot day, I felt ok to leave Charlie at home.
