Introduction

The United States Congress designated the Mount Naomi Wilderness (map) in 1984 and it now has a total of 44,554 acres. All of this wilderness is located in Utah and is managed by the Forest Service.

Description

With spectacular alpine scenery, Mount Naomi Wilderness lies between the Logan River and the Utah-Idaho state line located northeast of Logan, Utah. At 9,980 feet, Naomi Peak, near the eastern boundary, is the area's highest point, although this mountainous country contains several other peaks towering above 9,000 feet. On the western side, there are many deep, scenic canyons. Wildflowers carpet the large mountain meadows during summer blooms, and several flowers are unique to this region. You'll find large populations of moose, elk, and deer, and beavers that are well established in several streams.

Trails meander up the major canyons on the western side of the wilderness from trailheads near U.S. Highway 91. Most of these canyons are undesignated (non-wilderness), including an extensive non-wilderness intrusion around Green Canyon in the southern portion of the area. The trails join with others to link the area to U.S. Highway 89. Mount Naomi Wilderness has about 11 system trails totaling approximately 65 miles.
