Long Description:
"This well-known cave extends about 4,000 feet into the mountain, and is as high as 70 feet in some places. Logan Cave was carved by water seeping along faults and joints in the limestone, which slowly dissolved the rock. The cave is 4,290 feet long and relatively narrow with no large rooms or caverns. Much of the floor of the cave is also a streambed as water collects and makes its way to the mouth of the cave and then into the Logan River.

The cave is gated to protect Townsend’s big-eared bats that live here. The bats are being protected as a sensitive species because of their susceptibility to disturbance. Simply walking past a colony can cause them to permanently abandon their roost. Please do not approach the mouth of the cave. This population of the big-eared bat is one of only a few found in Northern Utah. Logan Cave is the only cave of its size that provides a place for the bats to bear and raise their young and to hibernate in the winter. The bats raise their babies during spring and early summer."
