Limber Pine Trail is short nature 1.3 mile loop and is always a good idea if you are near logan canyon or on your way to Bear Lake. This trail is great for all ages and levels of hikers! It is wide and level. A beautiful walk through the wooded forests and mountain meadows of the Cache National Forest.
Just a few steps up from the parking lot the trail will split. Go to your right here so you can read the signs in order. Our kids loved reading the interpretive signs along the way. Especially the sign about why some trees grow nice seats in their trunks-which they all took turns sitting on.
This is a great trail to take it slow and just enjoy the beauty around you. Our kids loved climbing around on the trees off the side of the trail and pointing out all of the different wildflowers.
The wildflowers were just gorgeous and they were everywhere! I was walking slower than my five year old, so that I could take in all of the beauty! We hiked this the last weekend in June, but I am sure the flowers are still amazing up there!
About halfway through the loop you will find one of the oldest limber pines in Utah-the sign says it is 2,560 years old. It’s actually a bunch of trees that have grown together and is really cool to see. No spoiler pictures for you though-go check it out!
This trail is mostly shady, although the tree canopy does open up for parts of the trail. You can also catch a glimpse of bear lake from near the end of the trail.
This is just a great family hike! We have gone in different seasons and the trail is always enjoyable.
- The trailhead and parking lot are about 30 miles up logan canyon (GPS: N41°55′500″ W111°28′300″) , just past the summit. There is a large sign next to the road. It is before the rest area parking lot and bear lake viewing area-so if you get there, you have gone too far.
- There are bathrooms are the parking lot
- The trail is wide and mostly smooth
- Easy trail-good for all ages
- Since the trailhead is so close to Bear Lake-you need to go get a raspberry shake after the hike!
