Boyfriend and I got lost half way through and had to bushwhack our way to a road which eventually led to the grave. We were kindly 4 wheeled out as the sunset beamed. Was a good hike.

Great little trail. We traveled on ATV and passed Friendship and Spring campgrounds. We saw the waterfall. I imagine it is a lot better in the spring when there is more water, but still a pretty view. We continued on past the waterfall for several more miles. Eventually it started getting very rocky. At one point, we turned around because it just got way to gnarly for us. The whole trail was moderate until that point. According to my app, from the parking lot to when we turned around was about 10 miles (20 round trip).

I had not expected this hike to be that challenging. Boy was I wrong, the last mile was tough! I made it but only made 30 minute mile on the hike up. The scenery wasn’t as spectacular as other hikes in the valley, but the wildflowers were amazing!

I thought, despite it being a rocky road, it was an ok hike. I hiked it on 03/30/18 and I saw one truck. It is pretty steep in some places. For me, it was a nice little hike. Some of the rocky roads are steep which gave me a good workout. I would do it again with a friend.

Like most trails in Utah this starts as a week maintained dirt road and eventually turns into a really nice mix of rocky, rutted, and muddy trail. Some places you have to back up if you meet another vehicle but its not bad.

Awesome afternoon drive. Lots of cool colors up there today when I went up!

"Off-road driving" must refer to something that isn't jeeping or off-roading with an actual vehicle. I have a 5.9l V8 Jeep with a 6" lift and 35 inch tires and this was one of the worst trails I have ever seen. The trail was, put pleasantly: brutal. The trail wasn't just rocky, it was like driving on loose shale with soccer-ball sized rocks and jagged outcrops throughout that ensured a terrible ride both up and down the trail. Hiking would be a nightmare on this trail as well so look elsewhere for that. The end of the trail also had a bunch of really low hanging trees and the trail was overgrown which is sure to scratch up any vehicle. I guess there may be some appeal for ATV or Razor-type vehicles but even then it would be an incredibly unpleasant ride.

In and out through the trees, a few puddles to splash through. It's an easy drive except for the mosquitos.

Some really cool tree covered areas! Also some really dull open plains with nothing to look at. All in all was still a fun trail

We did this trial on labor day weekend, fall colors starting to change, mild temps, and tons of hunters! Was a great day out in the mountains

While we didn't follow this trail exactly from this app, (we used google maps, downloaded a topo)

I went on this trail before I had this app, so I took a different route on the return trip from Old Ephraim's Grave. It was longer than I had prepared for and there were a lot of ATVs, but it was a beautiful hike and fairly doable for a non-hiker.

There are two trails in the Left hand fork of the Blacksmith Fork Canyon. The first one you come to is about a mile and a half up the road after you turn off of the main highway. The trail is Latham hollow. There is no sign there but the trail follows a ATV trail off to the left of a large clearing area near a wide swimming hole in the creek. This is a great hike and is mostly shady with beautiful views and thimble berries to munch on during August! The next trail is about 4 miles further up the road from the Latham Hollow Trail head just past the Friendship campground. It is the Richards Hollow Trail head and there is a sign by the trailhead. The trail to the waterfall is about 1 1/2 miles from the parking area...so about a 3 mile round-trip. I would call it a moderate trail with a few steep spots but mostly a gradual climb.
The Richard Hollow Trail is best done in the spring, May or June to get the best effect from the waterfall. On July 29 of 2016 there was still water but it was reduced to a trickle with water in the creek only about a half mile below the waterfall.

Fun place to go in the winter to take a sleigh ride and see the elk.

This was quite the 4x4 trail. A lot of activity due to Opening of Deer Season. Road does get rougher the closer you get to the top. Had a blast enjoying the Fall afternoon. Taking Providence down was a very challenging ride down. Great Area!

A wonderful place to take a drive to. I have been here many times, during all times of the year. There are plenty of outdoor activities for all.

Have been to this area many times, and in all seasons. Winter provides wildlife viewing of the elk, grab a sleigh ride and get within a few feet of these impressive animals. Bring your snowmobiles and travel for miles and miles on the groomed trails provided in the area. Summer time I bring my ATV to this area and ride all around the Management area, but not in it. Have camped in this are several times over the years.

shuttled up close to the top, before the snow got to crazy on the road. DT the whole way down. A couple places seemed like some of the side hill had slid over the trail making some fun jumps on the way down.

The overview for this trail is a little inaccurate. Although it is used by mountain bikers, it is mainly used by ATV's, pickups, & SUV's. If you plan on mountain biking be prepared for a lot of ATV riders. It is a nice scenic trail with the highlight being a huge granite monument to Old Ephraim (A giant grizzly bear that roamed the area in the early 20th century) The monument is near the spot where he was finally killed. Most of the natives of Cache Valley know the story of Old Ephraim. For a while his skull was in the Smithsonian, but a few years ago it was brought back to USU where they have it on display.

This is a great trail for ATV's and horseback riding. Lots of wildlife (deer, elk, wild turkeys, moose) and great scenery. Watch out for rattlesnakes in the summertime. They just improved the road so it's not quite as treacherous as it use to be. From the top you can see wilderness for miles and miles.
