Hike Utah's Mount Naomi Peak
Utah › White Pine Lake Trail
Added by James Troxell
- Backcountry experience minutes from Logan, UT with a view of all of Cache County and north into Idaho
- The drive to the trailhead is so scenic, you might not make the hike
- One of best places to see high mountain wildflowers anywhere during the summer
- 6.4-mile roundtrip hike, 1900' elevation gain
From Logan, UT, on US 91, take US 89 east approximately 20 miles up Logan Canyon to the Tony Grove Campground turnoff. Turn west up this road for about seven miles to a parking place at the trailhead to White Pine Lake. Coordinates are N 41.8951 and W -111.64334.
The trailhead starts at Tony Grove Lake in the Mt. Naomi Wilderness and will take you to either Mt. Naomi Peak or White Pine Lake. Take the Mt. Naomi trail and hike 3.2 miles to the summit. The trail quickly takes you into conifer forest with the feeling of remote backcountry.
It's an easy trail to follow but fades out towards the summit; just head to the high point and soak in the views as it is the highest point anywhere in the area. You can also hike north along the ridge from here and bag some more peaks if you're looking for a long day hike or overnighter.
If you decide to camp, there is water in the basin north west of White Pine Lake and you will have it all to yourself. White Pine Lake is beautiful, but there will be crowds and you won't find the same kind of solitude you will on Mount Naomi.
There is a small day use fee and/or overnight fee. The weekends can be quite busy at Tony Grove but not as many people actually make it past the lake. Summer is prime for viewing wildflowers. The yellow and red foliage is gorgeous in October.
Logan is a college town, so hit Main Street up after the hike for a variety of good eats. Firehouse Pizzeria is a local favorite.
- Lunch or a snack (for day hikes)
- Backpacking gear and overnight gear (if camping)
