wheeling in the Bear Lake area?

Heading to Bear Lake this week to stay at my grandparents cabin. Just wondering if anybody knows of some wheeling spots. I know there are a ton of ATV trails but are there any Jeepin trails?

There are trails all over. Nothing too hard, but there are roads and trails everywhere near Hardware Ranch. Old Ephraim's grave is fun and scenic.

I like the trails that go out of round valley (near laketown) and up towards Ephraims grave, and towards Hardware. It is a great area. There are also some mild trails north into Idaho from Beaver Creek lodge. It is mostly expedition style driving, not hard wheeling. But the area is great and fun to see.`

Long story short, You will never need 4 wheel drive up there. I've explored the whole area over the years on quads, and there just isn't anything out there for a jeep. It is much nicer to be on quads than the jeep.

If you go up Cub River canyon I've heard of "rough roads" tha sound like they could be interesting. At worst, it'd be interesting exploring. Sounds like it would be about Paris, ID latitude where you'd come out into Bear Lake. Unfortunately not much that actually requires 4wd up there. If you find something interesting and legally open, please post up. I love area as I grew up in Smithfield. Haven't had much reason to haul the Jeep up there though

I used to travel most of those roads in Cache County in a Toyota Corolla. Great for scenic dirt road travelling but certainly not anything hard.

Go out to Logan peak. Not too tough, but I wouldn't do it in a car. There is always Providence Canyon if it is open. That is a good, boulder strewn climb that will challange most mild rigs.

Most of That road washed out last spring. Sounds like it could get "repaired" this fall?

Finally found a trail up here that required 4lo. Nice and scenic and some steep climbs and plenty of mud from this last weekends storms
