Discover one of Utah’s oldest trees on the Limber Pine Nature Trail

Tom’s experience hiking the Limber Pine Nature Trail:

The Limber Pine Nature Trail is a simple loop hike on the east end of Logan Canyon on the way to Bear Lake.

Limber Pine Trail

The trail is 1.3 miles roundtrip and is mostly level throughout. There are informational signs along the way that teach about the different trees and have quotes on them.

A lot of the hike was shaded and in a forest which was pretty cool.

At about the halfway point there is an outcropping and bench so you can look at a tree that is supposedly 2500 years old.

The trail is really easy to follow and really easy to hike. Our two year old son hiked the whole thing himself. Dogs are also allowed on this trail.

There is an outhouse and a sign describing the trail at the trailhead.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: From Logan, head east through Logan Canyon towards Bear Lake. It is about 30 miles up Logan Canyon just after the Bear Lake Summit sign. There is a sign for the Limber Pine Nature Trail on the right.

Enjoy the views at Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park

Tom’s experience hiking at the Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park:

The Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park is a well maintained park with trails running through it. The trails weave back and forth and you cover very little distance on this hike.

However, the oak trees provide great shade and even though you are just outside of the city, you rarely see buildings.

There is a shooting range right next to this park but the shooting range is closed some days to make for a more peaceful hiking or biking experience. This trail is more popular with bikers than hikers and we hiked past a number of bikers.

The trails for biking looked really fun with a few ramps set up for excitement. The trails go wild in the park but there are signs that point you along the main loop. You can follow that path or create your own. The main loop is about 1.7 miles roundtrip if no detours are taken.

Also since there are so many different trails it could be easy to get lost. However the mountains and the city give you a general sense of where you are. There are a few primitive camp spots and a few benches along the trail.

The trail begins on the north side of the parking lot after you walk by the large sign. Dogs are allowed on this trail. There are toilets at the trailhead.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The trailhead is located at 1588 East 650 North in Kaysville, Utah. To get there head along Highway 89 until you reach North Mountain Road. Continue north on North Mountain Road and it will change to 650 North. The trailhead is at a dead end on the west side of the road. There is a giant sign for Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park so it is hard to miss.
