Tom’s Experience climbing Naomi Peak:
Naomi peak is the highest summit in the Bear River mountain range and the county high point for Cache County. The summit is 9,828 feet, with an impressive prominence of 3,159 feet.
In the autumn, many hunters are in the area so be sure to wear bright colors if you plan on hiking in this area.
The easiest way to the summit is by starting at Tony Grove Lake. There is a small fee to park your car here. The trail is pretty straight forward with all major intersections marked by signs.
At about .3 miles there will be an intersection with the right fork heading towards White Pine Lake and the left fork heading towards the summit.
You will pass through numerous trees as well as steep cliff faces but the trail is well worn and easy to follow and fairly gradual for a mountain hike. The total distance is about 7 miles roundtrip.
Dogs are allowed on this trail.
Trail Info: From Logan, Utah, head east up Logan Canyon past USU. The turnoff for Tony Grove is signed and is about 19 miles from the mouth of the canyon. Drive 7 miles along that road until the road dead-ends at the trailhead parking. There is also a campground right before the trailhead parking. There is a lake and an outhouse in the parking area.
