Trails Illustrated. We hesitate to refer users to a commercial product, but the 2014 National Geographic/Trails Illustrated map for the Logan Bear River Range is an excellent resource. Printed on waterproof material, this double-sided map covers the area from Porcupine Reservoir on the south to Mink Creek on the north and Bear Lake on the east to Brigham City on the west. Trails are well marked by type (motorized, wilderness, etc.), with mileages. The map scale is 1:75,000, great for trip planning and general orientation, but the map is not a replacement for the more detailed topographic maps for off-trail hiking and route-finding. This map is available in local stores and online.
