Willard Peak (9,763 ft) and Ben Lomond Peak (9,712 ft) are the two high points dominating the Northern end of the Wasatch Mountains, above Ogden, Utah. Willard Peak is the high point for Weber County, though it sees less than half the amount of hikers compared to the popular Ben Lomond Peak. Both are worthy summits, and to avoid having to come back on separate days to hike each one, do both in one trip.
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.
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.
The Wind Caves Trail is located in Logan Canyon about 1.5 hours northeast of SLC. We were looking for something new & different to hike, and I had heard of these caves before from friends. Our plan was to make a day trip of it, and hike this trail and one across the road called The Crimson Trail, which gets you above the China Wall. I also wanted to stop at one of my favorite outdoor sports store, Camp Saver. CampSaver.com is an online gear store, however their physical store is located just before you reach Logan in Nibley, UT. Anything you buy in store gives you an extra 20% discount on everything. Plus, they are super knowledge able and can help you find the perfect gear for any adventure.
