Log Canyon is located just 8 miles to the north of Maple canyon and offers cobblestone climbing similar to Maple. Currently there is very little developed in Log Canyon, and most of the developed routes are very easy, but there is plenty of rock that still needs to be developed. Log Canyon doesn't have nearly as much rock as Maple Canyon, but it is much less crowded as well. Log Canyon is a great place to take kids or beginners, it's also a great place to go and nab some first ascents if you're into that sort of thing.

Getting There 

From exit 225 in Nephi take highway 132 east towards Ephraim as if you were heading to maple canyon. Drive down highway 132 for about 10.5 miles until you will see a sign on your right that says Log Canyon and Moroni GS. Turn right on this well graded dirt road and follow it into Log Canyon.

Dancing Fool 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  UT : Log Canyon : Schoolhouse Rock
Use your 60m rope, traverse in from the left then blast straight up. Footholds are abundant, handholds are for balance with the occasional bucket. The moderate climber should feel like a dancing fool if they are doing it right....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

There's not much here yet, but what's here is good. There is so much development possibility here. I think more would have been developed already if Maple Canyon weren't so amazing.
Dispersed camping (free) is allowed in this canyon. There are some good spots just past Schoolhouse Rock. It would be a great place for an overnight with beginners.
