Fodor's Review

Come here to pay your respects to a northern Utah legend. Old Ephraim was the last grizzly bear known to roam and terrorize livestock around Garden City and Logan. His body was buried in 1923 at a site now designated by an 11-foot stone monument, which matches his height while standing on his hind legs; his huge skull is now exhibited in the Special Collections in Utah State University's Merrill Library. You can also look for a wooden sign marking the actual burial place of Old Ephraim originally placed by scouts in 1923. Make sure you have a sturdy four-wheel-drive vehicle with lots of clearance before attempting this trip; do not attempt it if it's been raining at all. Though it is only roughly 9 miles from the Logan Ranger District Station, the trip takes about three hours. Stop in at the ranger station for specific directions and road condition updates.
