Overview

Logan Canyon Road (eastbound) is a fairly well maintained dirt road that normally is suitable for 2WD-HC vehicles. Eastbound, the road starts at an intersection with Wild Horse Valley Road on the west side of the Mt. Irish Range. The road climbs, somewhat steeply at times, towards Logan Pass up in the Pinyon-Juniper Woodland zone, passing Rosario Mine and Rosie's Mining Cabin (an historic log cabin) along the way.

Descending the other side of the pass, the now steep and narrow roads winds back and forth with exciting views down the canyon. The road passes the ghost town of Logan and several points of interest in the Mt. Irish Archaeological District. Beyond the archaeological district, the now better road descends the desert bajada to Highway 318 in Hiko.

Presented here are photos of the road in the eastbound direction. For a full description of the road, including maps and GPS coordinates, see Logan Canyon Road-Westbound.
