““Horseback Riding at Beaver Creek Lodge in Logan Canyon, Utah””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

On September 15th, my two adult children, two of their friends, my sister and her husband and myself all went for a 4 hour horseback ride through the Cache National Forest. The tour leaves from Beaver Creek Lodge near Beaver Mountain Ski Resort and Garden City, Utah. We had a great guide (Tanisha) and wonderful horses. When we arrived at the top of the mountain to overlook beautiful Bear Lake we were given lunches from Old Grist Mill. It was a delicious lunch. The trail ride is beautiful and our guide answered all of our questions. You can take shorter tours if you don't want to be on a horse for 4 hours...even the short tours are a beautiful trail ride. Our group had a blast and would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves the Mountain Scenery and Horses. You do not need to be a regular rider to ride the horses that they have. The lodge at Beaver Creek is beautiful, we did not stay there but we looked around and it looks like fun. They also rent ATV's and they rent Snowmobiles in the Winter. I highly recommend this activity if you are in the area.

“BEAR LAKE : THE CARIBBEAN OF THE ROCKIES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The vast expanse of turquoise-blue natural freshwater lake is stretched over two states - Utah and Idaho. The approximate area of the lake, originally named The Black Bear Lake, is 280 sq km, length 29.5 km, width 11.4 km, average depth 94 ft and maximum depth 208 ft. Its surface elevation is 5924 ft. Limestone deposits suspended in the lake turn the color of the water into a unique turquoise-blue. The beautiful tourist destination has 3 recreation areas- Rendezvous Beach, Bear Lake Marina and East Beach. A legend runs that a serpent-like monster swims between Bear Lake and Loch Ness and its home is in the water caves on the east shore !!!
The serene lake is truly a peace haven for tourists.

“Beautiful scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stop by the overlook of the lake and enjoyed stretching our legs and walking around the lookout area. Not too crowded in early September.
