Explored the campus walking around to see all the sculptures. There are good food places like the Sky Room Restaurant in the Student Center and Luke's in the Ag Bldg but the do not miss place is Aggie's for ice cream in the Food Science Bldg. There were summer concerts on the Quad. It is a really nice campus.

Wind Caves Hike

Reviewed By Frank C - Logan, Utah

This is a nice quick hike with an enjoyable, scenic trail, and great views from the top. You can climb around the "caves" which are naturally formed arches. You'll almost never be alone on this trail, as it is a very popular hike not far from town. Parking is pretty easy right off of the highway and right next to the trailhead. If you're not in great shape, plan on taking your time, as the trail to the caves is all uphill, and it gains quite a bit of elevation in a short distance. This is a great hike to take in a beautiful trail, get great views at the top, and not have to spend half a day or more doing it.

Cache Valley Visitors Bureau

The Visitors Bureau is located in the historic Cache County Courthouse in downtown Logan, and is a great resource for travelers and locals alike. This beautifully restored 1883 building is a tourist attraction in its own right. Check out a wide range of brochures and maps and enjoy personal assistance from a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Even though this is the "Cache Valley" Visitors Bureau, information is available for the entire state and beyond. The city of Logan sits on U.S. Highway 89 and is part of the Great Yellowstone Loop. We've got loads of information to assist you along that scenic drive. Need souvenirs or gifts to take home? The Visitors Bureau Gift Shop is a great source. Stop in for a visit at 199 North Main. We're in the large red brick building with the gold dome. There is ample free parking behind the building for cars and RVs, and the restrooms are the cleanest in town.

The Visitor's Bureau is located in the old courthouse, which is a treat to visit all by itself. The bureau is chock-full of books, pamphlets and maps of the Cache Valley and surrounding area. It will definitely open your eyes to all of the awesome things to do in this beautiful and historic place. The staff person was extremely friendly and had detailed knowledge of the area. Worth a visit, if you are in the mood for discovery!

Crimson Trail

Reviewed By leahkashouty - Ocoee, Florida

Wow! This hike was gorgeous. If your scared of heights this trek is not for you. The trail climbs, and climbs til finally you reach the China Wall. I saw my first rattlesnake sunning right on this trail. I see black snakes all day long in Florida but this snake was hissing, and rattling his tail. A little scary! The hike was difficult for me as I wasn't quite aclimated to the elevation but boy was I glad I did it. Breathtaking views!

Hardware Ranch

Reviewed By Glenda M - Roy, Utah

During the winter, Hardware Ranch puts out bails of hay for wild elk. The ranch also offers wagon rides through the herd of elk (frequently, several hundred, depending on the snow level/ability to find food in the area). It's fascinating to see full-grown and young elk - males with full antlers - up close. There is also a visitor center across the street, which is quite interesting.

Reviewed By smerdlapgraslbinder - california

This delightful small zoo is a perfect place to spend an hour or two. We enjoyed feeding the ducklings and goslings and admired the yak, the caribou, and the red foxes in particular. Having said that, the entire animal experience was enjoyable and we ended up spending probably twice as much time here as I anticipated. The zoo is a non-profit and it shows in the style and the lack of constant merchandizing that you find at most zoos. One of the volunteers was walking out with a bearded dragon lizard to take to a Cub Scout encounter and stopped to chat with us simply because she observed we were interested.....I like having people who want to share and are happy to share helping me to best enjoy my experience. Nice!

White Pine Lake

Reviewed By TomDyerUCF - Es Castell, Spain

If you are passing through Logan Canyon then this is a must

We'd been staying at Bear Lake and a good friend recommended this hike

The other reviews will tell you the altitudes and distances

My fit bit counted 140 floors climbed through the climb.

Bring water, the sun beats down although there was a nice breeze on the August day we hiked it

Really enjoyed it and burned off enough calories to justify a trip to Logan's number 1 restaurant Angie's on the way back

;)
