What to See and Do
Hiking and Biking
Although the most popular activity at the Logandale Trails is OHV riding, many of the routes are great for hiking as well. The trails traverse a rocky, open area with beautiful scenic views. You'll find hiking paths of varying difficulties throughout the trail system.
Located within the Arrow Canyon Wilderness, Arrow Canyon is an out-and-back trail with breathtaking views. Although the hike features significant elevation gains, it isn't particularly difficult and should be suitable for most hikers. There are two separate parking lots you can use when visiting the trail.
Length: 10.7 miles
Fire Wave Trail
The Fire Wave Trail is a heavily trafficked out-and-back trail located in the Valley of Fire State Park. In addition to a scenic hike, the trail also has a cave that you can explore during your visit. You can bring your dogs along with you on the rocky trail as long as they remain leashed.
Length: 1.5 miles
Fishing & Boating
If you're looking to do some fishing and boating in the area, your best bet is probably to head south to Lake Mead, located at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The huge lake, which is fed by the Colorado River, is an excellent destination for boating, swimming, and water sports. It's also a great spot to cast your fishing line — largemouth bass, striped bass, channel catfish, crappie, and bluegill all inhabit the waters.
The Desert National Wildlife Refuge is located a short distance west of the Logandale Trails BLM site, and it boasts several mountain ranges and many climbing opportunities. Some of the most popular nearby destinations for experienced climbers are Gass Peak, Sheep Peak, and Hayford Peak. If you're looking for climbing on a smaller scale, you can attempt to take on some of the many red sandstone formations found around the trail system.
Quite a few diverse and interesting wildlife species are known to roam the Logandale Trails area, including some endangered ones. The amazing creatures you may come across include, but are not limited to, desert tortoises, chuckwallas, Gila monsters, and desert bighorn sheep. Keep your eyes on the sky — you might see a bald eagle or hawk soaring through the sky.
The Logandale Trails BLM area features several primitive picnic areas. The area is set up so you can conveniently do some OHV riding or hiking and then take a break by enjoying a relaxing picnic. Because of the rocky, sandy terrain of the area, it might be difficult to find a suitable spot to lay out a blanket, so you may want to stick with the tables provided.
OHV riding is by far the most popular activity at the Logandale Trails. Of the many miles of trails, a high percentage of them can accommodate any type of OHV. However, certain trails are only suitable for ATVs, specially modified SUVs and Jeeps, or motorcycles. Regardless of your skill level, there should be multiple trails appropriate for what you can safely handle. The OHV trails provide the amazing opportunity to ride through areas filled with ancient petroglyphs, rare plants and wildlife, and breathtaking red sandstone formations.
