Highlight: Dip Hollow (Old Ephraim's Grave)
The life of a grizzly bear is celebrated among this trail as it runs to the grave of Old Ephraim, the last known grizzly bear in the state of Utah. Along this scenic drive through the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache national forest situated near Logan, Utah, you will wind your way through aspen groves, towering pines, and across open valleys. This off-road trail is a great way to escape the heat of the city during the few months of the year that it is open. Due to its elevation and location deep in the mountains, it is only accessible about 6 months out of the year. Camping and hunting are very popular along this trail so you are likely to not be alone. Although this may seem like an easy trail, there is much to see and do in the area so you can plan anything from a day trip to a multi-day adventure within this large network of trails, combining it with routes such as Temple Fork, Millville Canyon and Logan Peak, or you can jump over to Bear Lake Summit Trail or Temple Canyon and spend some time down at Bear Lake.

Mapping Crew - Utah

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, he's only been off-roading since he was 16 but fell in love immediately. He attended college in Denver for Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management and wheeled in Colorado for 4 years, but ended up moving back home to Salt Lake City. He currently works in an off-road shop and spends his free time doing anything he can to stay busy, which is usually working on his jeep or playing music. Outside of off-roading, he is an avid whitewater rafter and outdoor cook. Camping at least every other weekend in any season is a normal year. The further from civilization, the better. Bring on the memories!
