Blacksmith Fork River, 4 September, 2023
Eight Cache Hikers braved the wet weather on the Labor Day hike. Plans were changed from an Ephraims Grave destination to a shorter and less muddy hike in lower Blacksmith fork due to the steady rain.
Dave W gave historical information on the trail along the way. Remnants of a CCC camp and mountain biker built trails were seen.
We reached the end of the official trail and stopped for an early lunch at about 10am.
On the way back down we stopped to sample elderberries and discussed the disc golf course with golf targets hanging from tree limbs.
We arrived back at the cars at 11:40am, and covered 4.7 miles with 360 ft of elevation gain
Back in Logan at 12 noon, some hikers went out for lunch at El Toro Viejo.
