This jagged, figure-8 trail is marked with red blazes throughout. The loops converge at the Brush Ridge Fire Tower, which is also considered one of the trailheads.
The second trailhead can be found below the Pine Lake Dam. Backpackers can camp at the fire tower through reservation at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry.
The loops of this trail converge at the Brush Ridge Fire Tower where hikers can get a look at the deciduous forest on all sides for miles. The spillway at Pine Lake and Brush Ridge Fire Tower are considered trailheads for the Logan Backpack Trail.
The trail is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. There are primitive campsites for backpackers as well as access to the campground.
