Mount Naomi Wilderness is known as the best wildflower viewing area in Utah. When we were there, it lived up to its fame, with Indian paintbrush, lupine, columbine, balsamroot, and dozens more all washing the mountainsides with color. Moose, black bear, elk, and mule deer are abundant in the Bear River Range of north-central Utah. The crest of the range is an alpine paradise of flowers, lakes, and forest—all above 9,000 feet for 13 miles of its length before tapering off toward the Idaho border to the north and toward Logan Canyon to the south. The crest of the range is the boundary line of the designated wilderness, with lots of recreational opportunities in public land east of the boundary, but an abrupt switch to private land at the base of the range on the west. Although there are trailheads on the west flank, it’s nicer to cruise through all the forested areas to the east and south in order to approach wilderness trails. This trail guide includes descriptions of Mount Naomi Peak and High Creek Lake.
