Naomi Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Tony Grove Lake sits in a beautiful setting at the base of a series of rocky ledges, with rugged Naomi Peak to the west. The peak you see from the trailhead is Mount Magog, not Naomi Peak. The view at the top is spectacular—wild, rugged country in every direction. Beautiful peaks stretch into the distance northward into Idaho, eastward into Wyoming, and south toward the Wasatch Range. On very clear days you might even make out the outline of the Raft River Mountains in northeastern Utah along the Idaho border."
--Steve Mann & Rhett Olson, 100 Hikes in Utah (The Mountaineers Books).
"Any flower enthusiast will love Naomi Peak during the blooming season. One of Utah’s premier flower hikes also has cows and sheep on the trail, making for a pretty wonderful trail if you happen to be a dog. Add the spectacular views of Cache Valley and the Bear River Mountains, drinking water, and a lake to swim in at the parking lot, and you and your dog have everything needed for an amazing day in the wilderness. Naomi Peak is not to be missed. In July and August when the flowers are their showiest, you and your dog will have to be dragged home."
--Dayna Stern, Best Hikes With Dogs: Utah (The Mountaineers Books).
"Naomi Peak is the highest point in the Bear River Mountains of northern Utah and southern Idaho. While the limestone range is not very high it is extremely rugged, and the views from the top of Naomi are outstanding. Many of the most interesting peaks in the range can be seen from the summit. If you are hiking in late July or August you will also be able to enjoy another highlight of the Bear River Range: wildflowers. Nowhere else in Utah will you see them in such staggering abundance. A colorful profusion of geraniums, paintbrushes, columbines, lupines, daisies, and mountain sunflowers stretch for miles across the meadows north of Tony Grove Trailhead. It is a shame that these meadows were not included in the 1984 Utah Wilderness Bill that created the Mount Naomi Wilderness Area. Snowmobile operators frequent the area in the winter, and they lobbied successfully to have the watershed east of the peak excluded from the bill. This hike touches only briefly on the eastern boundary of the wilderness area."
