Aid Station Accessibility (for Crew)

 

Leatham Hollow (Mile 19.7): (CREW) Go south on Main Street from Logan (left fork heading out of town) past Providence and then to Hyrum, turn left and go up Blacksmith Fork Canyon. Turn left about 5 miles up the canyon at the “Left Fork of the Blacksmith” sign. About 1 mile past the turn-off you will reach the end of pavement.  You must stop and park near the gate and walk up the road 1/4 mile to the aid station.

Right Hand Fork (Mile 37): (New for 2022) No crew vehicles will be allowed to park at RHF. To crew or spectate you must ride the shuttle from Logan. The shuttle cost is $5 a person, paid in-advance (link will be shared in Aug), $10 day of event. The shuttle location is likely Lundstrom Park (TBD). The nice thing about the shuttle is you can come early and cheer on all the runners and take your time to leave if you wish. It takes 2.5 hours for the fastest runners to run from RHF to Tony Grove and the slower runners will take 4-5 hours. If you are only dropping off a pacer you can either ride the shuttle or get dropped off. No lingering. This will be strictly enforced. Don’t be the reason your runner gets disqualified, they will be very upset.

Directions: From Leatham Hollow Aid, go back to Logan the way you came. Drive to Lundstrom Park (MAP) and take a shuttle to get to the aid station. Shuttles will be leaving every 20-30 minutes. The drive is 20 mins to get to the aid station. Shuttles will start at 10:30 and run until 6. 

Temple Fork (Mile 45.1): (NO CREW) DO NOT PARK ON HIGHWAY 89 AT TEMPLE FORK. You will be cited by the Highway Patrol. NO CREWS ALLOWED!  You may drop off a pacer but you may not pick up a pacer.  Any pacer that started at RHF must continue to pace to Franklin Basin Aid.  The area for dropping off pacers is right after you turn off the highway. You must drop off the pacer and leave immediately. There just isn’t room for Crew at this aid station.  Please help us comply so we can continue to hold the race in following years. This is closely watched by the policeman who is helping keep runners safe on this dangerous road.

Tony Grove Aid (Mile 52): (CREW) After riding the shuttle back to Logan from RHF grab a quick bite to eat in Logan and then head up the canyon once again to the Tony Grove Lake turn-off. You will drive for approximately 6 miles to the ‘backcountry trailhead’. It is on your left, near the end of the road, just before arriving at the campground and lake parking lot. This aid station now requires a fee to park here due to a recent forest service maintenance requirement. The fee usually isn’t enforced after Labor Day, but we don’t have any control of that. Parking is very limited here and you must have the Crew Parking pass displayed. There is a lot of parking at the highway turnoff if you want to carpool.

Franklin Basin (Mile 61.5): Head down the canyon back to Highway 89. Turn left on Highway 89 and continue up the Canyon about 3 miles to the Franklin Basin road, turn left.  The parking lot is on your left at the pit toilet.  You must park here and walk in the 1/3 mile to the aid station. Do not drive to the aid. This is a requirement for all support crews. Only aid station vehicles will be allowed at the aid.

Logan River: (Mile 68.6) (NO CREW) Logan River aid station will not be accessible to crew. Pacers and crew may attend to their runners at Franklin Basin Road aid station or at Beaver Mountain aid stations. Crews attempting to attend to their runners along the Franklin Basin Road will subject their runner to disqualification. Please help us maintain a safe event that complies with the Forest Service’s wishes.

Beaver Mountain (Mile 75.9): From the Franklin Basin road, go back to the Logan Canyon Highway, turn left (east) and go about 3 miles to the Beaver Mountain left turn. It is about 1-½ miles up the paved road to Beaver Mountain. At this point you will enter a large parking lot, with campsites on your left. Three flag poles are in front of the ski lodge straight ahead. As you look at the lodge, go right, uphill. This is the road to the aid station. Park anywhere near here that is available and proceed on foot. Be considerate of the campers. 

Beaver Creek Campground (Mile 85.6): From Beaver Mountain, go back down the paved road 1 mile, turn left and head up Beaver Creek road 011 (not signed). Stay to the right and be warned that this is a rough road. I have made it successfully with an Outback but that doesn’t mean it is easy. Passenger cars are not recommended on this 4 mile rough road.  High clearance vehicles only.

Ranger Dip (Mile 92.2): From Beaver Creek, go back down to the Logan Canyon Highway, and turn left. It is about 3 miles to the Swan Flat road. Turn left onto this dirt road, and go about 5 miles, take the right fork, and there will be the aid station at the trailhead.  Passenger cars can make the journey although it is bumpy. It is smoother than Beaver Creek Campground.

Finish Go back the way you came from Ranger Dip AS to highway 89. Turn left, over the summit, and down to Bear Lake at Garden City. At Garden City turn left (north) on Highway 89. Cross into Idaho, and in about 3 miles you will reach Fish Haven. On the left you will see a restaurant called Gladys’s Place. Turn left at Gladys’s Place (Fish Haven Canyon Road).  The finish is 3/4 mile up this road on your left Fish Haven Creek Lodge (681 Fish Haven Canyon Rd).
