Driving Directions


The Trail:

The Tony Grove Nature Trail is a great family friendly hike that circles Tony Grove Lake which is a beautiful alpine lake that sits about 8000 feet. The drive into the lake is gorgeous. It is a well signed turn off highway 89 in Logan Canyon and is about a six mile drive to the lake. The views on the drive are spectacular especially in fall. Tony Grove has some of the largest Aspen groves in the world and you also get great views of Mount Naomi, the highest peak in Cache County and the Bear River Range.

This is also a great spot to see Moose!

There is a 6 dollar fee to park in the parking area. Two very popular hikes also start here: Naomi Peak and White Pine Lake

The views of the lake are very pretty from the parking area. I will be sharing pictures from different seasons so you can see the different personalities the area takes on.

There is a small plaque explaining how the area got it’s name.

The hiking trail starts on the north end of the lake. There is a sign.

The trail actually starts out in the trees before it gets to the lake and then skirts the cliffs on the west side of the lake.

The sunsets here can be awesome!

As you circle the lake there are some really pretty colors and some really huge pine trees.

My favorite view is from the southeast corner of the lake. You get a great view of Mount Magog’s south face.

Here is the view from that side of the lake through each season except winter when the area is under more than ten feet of snow.

The entire east side of the lake is a dam with a wide trail on it that will take you back to your car.

Personal Thoughts:

I love going for an evening drive up here. It can be crowded but is always peaceful and beautiful. The walk along the lake is very easy as well. This is a great spot for locals or anyone visiting Logan or Bear Lake.

The Bottom Line

Difficulty is basically the length, duration and stress of the Trek. If the Trek is really long then it will receive a higher rating. If the Trek is short then it won't receive that high of a rating. However, difficulty rating also includes how tired we were at the end of the Trek.

Technicality is how strenuous the Trek is. If there is lots of bouldering or if there is bushwhacking involved then the rating will be higher. Technicality also includes if there are steep inclines or the need for ropes and other equipment.

Enjoyment is strictly how much fun we had doing the Trek. Regardless of how tired and exhausted we were, if we had a ton of fun doing the Trek then it will receive a higher rating.
