Geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,173 square miles (3,038 km²), of which, 1,165 square miles (3,016 km²) of it is land and 9 square miles (22 km²) of it (0.73%) is water.

On the western edge of the county lies the Wellsville Mountains and on the eastern edge lie the Bear River Mountains, both northern branches of the Wasatch Range. A canyon carves its way through the Wellsville Mountains. Up this canyon climb U.S. Routes 89 and 91 together. In downtown Logan the highways split, with US-91 heading north into Idaho and US-89 heading east and northeast into Logan Canyon. Taking up the land between the Wellsville and Bear River Mountains is Cache Valley, a relatively flat valley traversed by the Bear River and dotted with small farm towns in the west and the larger, more urban, and faster-growing areas in the east, along the benches of the Bear River Mountains. The county climbs to an elevation of 9,980 ft (3,042 m) at Naomi Peak in the Bear River Mountains.
