Aerial Survey reveals en echelon graben along the East Cache fault zone and possible NW-trending escarpments on the grounds of the Logan Country club at the mouth of Logan Canyon. The NW-trending escarpments are in the west half of the golf course. They could be channels, or graben with fluvial modification. They persist northwest into the neighborhoods of Logan, Utah at least to the Logan cemetery. Distributed faulting is indicated within the delta of the Logan River. Several high escarpments in the narrow eastern part of the golf course are man-made benches across steep slopes.
