shoes: Kayano 25 Blue

Last day in Logan, Utah. There's a segment of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail that runs from Green Canyon to Logan Canyon. From the Green Canyon trailhead I ran south, the foothills rising up to the left and new housing developments to the right, with a nice view out over the Cache Valley, staying pretty flat.

Then just before the switchbacks down into Logan Canyon I picked up the Hiline Trail. It traverses along the northern side of the canyon, with vertical cliffs on the left and perilous drops on the right. It dead ends, but before that there's a u-turn that drops down to the canyon floor and joins the Canyon Gateway Trail, parallel but a couple hundred feet below. Then near the northwest corner of the USU campus some steep switchbacks take you up to the Hiline junction, and back on the Bonneville Shoreline to the north end at Green Canyon.

It turns out there was an access trail from the campus, which I got very close to yesterday, and I might have run on if I'd known. None of this was clear from Internet searches, but there was good signage on the trails themselves.
