Green Canyon Yurt

At the top of Green Canyon in Logan is the yurt of all yurts. The road closes off at beginning of the winter and doesn't allow any motorized vehicles beyond that point until the spring. The only one allowed is the snowmobile that pulls the groomer along to keep the trail nice for hikers, cross-country skiers, and sledders. It's about a three and a half to four mile walk from the parking lot to the yurt. It took us almost 2 hours to get up and we started at five in the afternoon and had light for about half the way and then it was super dark and the stars covered the sky. The night was beautiful this past Saturday on into Sunday morning and the temperatures were in the twenties. Despite the cold, inside the yurt was very comfortable. The wood burning stove produced enough heat to keep the 12 of us warm all night long. Six bunkbeds were provided with 3 inch foam that made for a very comfortable nights sleep. The walk down in the morning was a breeze after walking up the night before in the dark. Utah State Students get a discount on the rental of the Yurt and any equipment that you might want for the trip, it was a lot of fun and would always recommend this to people thinking about going up to this yurt.
