Driving Directions


The Trail:

The Twin Creeks road is a great little spot in Logan Canyon that is also one of the least visited areas in the canyon. The dirt road is open to all vehicles but is rarely driven. A car would not make it but most any 4×4 high clearance vehicle could. Any ATV or Dirt Bike could do the trail with ease and would be a great scenic place to train beginners. I have done this once by truck, and once as a hike. It is a great spot for a day hike. The area is far and away best visited in spring before the cattle completely destroy the canyon. It is a very green area in the spring. Fall time would also have some nice colors if you can put up with cow poop. The road ends at the Bear Hollow Trail Head which gives you hiking access into the Mount Naomi Wilderness. This would be probably the best spot to hike into the wilderness and not see anyone. The Bear Hollow Trail gives access to Tony Grove, Blind Hollow, Cottonwood Canyon, and Mount Elmer. At the top of the road you are rewarded with nice views of Mount Elmer which is an interesting high peak in the center of the Bear River Range. The road is open June 15th-November 15th.

Immediately after leaving Logan Canyon you will come to a cattle corral. The turn up canyon is right before the camp. As you begin to climb you will have nice views down Logan Canyon or Mount Logan off to the South.

As you can see in the spring the area is very green!

You will pass through many nice aspen groves and you will pass over a nice creek several times.

As you near the top of the road the terrain really opens up.

Just before the end of the road there is a tiny spur trail up a little knoll to the south which is where you can see great views into the Mount Naomi Wilderness where Mount Elmer dominates the terrain. This would also be a great spot to camp or have a campfire.

This is the Bubble Spring. It certainly is not much of a destination itself but does serve as the trail head into the Wilderness area.

From the turnaround you have to return the way you came enjoying the views along the way.


Personal Thoughts:

This is a great peaceful canyon that has a good chance for privacy and is great for a quick jaunt into the back country or a nice relaxing, gradual climbing day hike.

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.
