Murray Farm Trailhead

 

 

Murray Farm Trailhead

 

Cache County and the Logan Ranger District worked in partnership to construct a new year-round trailhead outside of Wellsville on National Forest System Land. The trailhead was constructed by the Cache County Roads Department on property located south of the City of Wellsville adjacent to the Wellsville Mountain Wilderness. The 603-acre property was purchased from Dean and Allison Murray through the Land and Water Conservation Fund in 2005 to conserve open space, protect wildlife habitat, and secure future public access to the Wilderness area. 

 

Funding was secured to build the trailhead through the Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation, the Recreation Trail Program, and the Northern Utah Resource Advisory Committee of the U.S. Forest Service. Complete with a vault toilet, the trailhead has twelve parking stalls and eight trailer parking spaces. This trailhead connects non-motorized users to Narrow and Wide Canyon trails, as well as the Wellsville Ridge Trail. Cache County’s Roads Department will ensure year-round access by plowing the trailhead throughout the winter.
