Strong Winds early in the morning. Park here to take tunnel under road to climb to either High Line Trail along Canyon, 4m loop back by Riverside Trail/ or continue straight for the Bonneville trail to Green Canyon. Nice water way views in park.

First Dam is a beautiful park and water/dam that's located just at the entrance into Logan canyon. It's literally a couple of minutes from the city and Utah State, so it's a quick escape without any hassle. Feed the ducks, fish, throw the ball around,...More
