LOGAN (AP) The northern reaches of Cache County could soon have a state scenic byway.
A citizen group has secured the support of four municipal governments for the North Cache Historic Scenic Byway. The proposed route begins on U.S. 91 at the Idaho border and heads west through the communities of Richmond, Trenton and Newton before looping south through Logan to connect with the existing Logan Canyon Scenic Byway.
As proposed, the byway also would link to the Oregon Trail Scenic Byway and loop through several small Idaho towns.
Organizer Lisa Duskin-Goede says the proposal still needs an endorsement from the city of Logan, the Cache County Council and three other Utah towns.
Duskin-Goede says proponents hope the route will increase area tourism and preserve the region's scenic qualities.
