Blacksmith Fork Canyon Cruise Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Blacksmith Fork Canyon Cruise is a 32.6-mile out-and-back, gradual ascent and descent of Blacksmith Fork Canyon. The climb is never particularly steep, making this ride a “cruise” rather than a “challenge.” Blacksmith Fork Creek originates in the Monte Cristo Mountains, a range with peaks cresting at over 9,000 feet in southeastern Cache County.

The creek courses through Blacksmith Fork Canyon in the southeast corner of Cache Valley, eventually draining into the Logan River. The “blacksmith” reference may have been to some blacksmithing equipment that Jedediah Smith and his trapper buddies cached in the canyon, to which they had to return to retrieve. Alternatively, the “blacksmith” may have been Andrew Anderson, a local."
