This trail climbs a narrow canyon east of Providence (a few miles south of Logan). The Providence Canyon singletrack trail is a nice climbing route for mountain bikes, and it really shines as a downhill. Out-and-back, the ride is 6.0 miles with 1200 vertical feet of climbing.
There's some outlaw singletrack on your left, which splits after 20 feet. The route to the left (over the log) is an easier climbing route, but both arms are advanced tech. The trails will rejoin in about 1/10 mile. As you reach mile 3.2, the trail ends at a washout along the canyon road.From the bridge, you can continue 0.3 miles uphill on ATV track to the quarry, or turn around. Beyond the quarry a primitive steep trail climbs the mountainside at a ridiculous pitch.

Northbound, exit I-15 at the first Brigham City off-ramp to Logan and US 89. Take US 89 up the canyon and descend into Cache Valley. As you enter Logan heading northeast on 89, take a sharp right to go south on SR 65 (Nibley Road, a continuation of Logan's Main Street). There are now multiple options to get through the street grid of Providence to the canyon. Turn east (left) on 1200 South, which will become 100 North in Providence. In town, turn right (south) on 100 East, which will turn east to become Canyon Road (600 South). Turn right when 600 South ends on Spring Creek Road. Just after the road turns to gravel, turn left into the parking area.
