Northern Utah’s Wasatch Range boasts its fair share of classic fat-tire hill climbs, ones that will burst the blood vessels in your eyes and turn your thighs to hamburger. But the granddaddy is the 5,700-foot grinder to Logan Peak. Only mountain-bike masochists need apply. You know you’ve bitten into a whopper when you realize you’ve passed through three vegetative life zones along the way: the Transitional Life Zone at the trailhead where sage, juniper, pinyon, and scrub hardwoods survive; the Canadian Life Zone mid-route where aspens yield to pines and then firs; and the Subalpine Life Zone atop the Logan Peak where conifers become “krumholz” or flag-shaped from incessant winds. Those who make it to the top will be rewarded with unparalleled views of northern Utah’s Bear River Range and Wellsville Mountains, both of which reign over fertile Cache Valley. The climb comes in two discernible sections. The first segment to White Bedground Camp is a moderately difficult but sustained ascent on mostly hard-packed doubletracks. This is a good out-and-back option for intermediate bikers or a simple warm-up for the toughies.
