This is THE COOLEST hike if you can call it a hike. Basically, you park right next to a river, cross the river and you are at your destination, the Hobbit Caves! Both Harmony and Stephanie are barely 5' tall, so we felt right at home here in HOBBITON.
Of course, after you explore the caves, you can follow the trail along the river for quite a ways. We didn't track how far it goes back but we did explore all over the area.
Getting down to the river is a little steep but totally doable. We had 3 adults, 2 babies on backs, and a handful of kids ages 2-14.
Thank you to the kind soul that placed boards here to cross.
The boards were actually quite stable. Didn't rock at all, but I'd double check before crossing for sure!
Once we were safely across, the kids started exploring all the little caves.
Four kids climbed into this tiny cave at once.
It's so magical here, everything is so green and mossy for Utah. Bring mosquitos repellant for sure if you plan on staying a while.

Check out our last visit HERE.
Drive up to Right Fork Logan Canyon.
The pull-out we took was about a 1/4 mile in. We even parked 3 vehicles, 2 of which that were towing 4-wheelers with long trailers. So it's a good size. We headed back the way we drove in until there was another road. (Photo above.) You'll come quickly to the river. This is where we crossed.
I found this map from this website. We parked by the orange square and then we walked across the river and there was a trail right there.
