cache county hike - old ephraim's grave

This Logan Canyon classic takes us to the final resting spot of Old Ephraim, an infamous grizzly bear with an appetite for sheep, cattle, and big game. The 1,100 pound bear was the last known grizzly in Utah. An 11-foot monument marks the 1923 burial site. The route follows a combination of singletrack and dirt road (1-mile) that wander through forests and lush meadows. The rating system makes this a MOD hike, but I hiked it solo last summer and found it to be at the high end and strenuous, so I've changed it to MOD+. Families with older teens are welcome.
