Welcome to the Cache Hikers Website Bunchgrass 2021

Cache Hiker events comply with current COVID-19 precautions:

  • Participants are encouraged to provide their own transportation to minimize COVID risk, but carpooling (to reduce parking congestion at trailheads) may be acceptable for fully-vaccinated and/or mask-wearing passengers.
  • Some trips may require a car shuttle between trailheads.  Please consider your current COVID situation before joining those hikes.  
  • Participants will maintain social distance and other current protocols when appropriate.

Hikes are scheduled for most weekends from mid-May to mid-October, and winter trips are scheduled from January to mid March.  Participants meet at the southwest corner of the Smith's Marketplace parking lot at 750 North Main Street in Logan, Utah.  Unless noted otherwise (below), the meeting time is 8:00 a.m. for summer hikes and 10:00 a.m. for winter trips.  Participants should bring food, water, and appropriate clothing, and consider a donation for gas if carpooling.

It is the participantís responsibility to be sure the trip is within his/her ability and stamina, and to have adequate equipment, including gear for weather, sun, and insects (for winter trips, trail crampons ("cleats" or "spikes") may be useful if conditions are not suitable for skis or snowshoes). Please contact the trip leader for more information.

Reinhard Jockel, passed away Dec. 7, 2021.  He was an enthusiastic and talented naturalist and one of the founders of the Cache Hikers.  I'm sure many of you have memories of Reinhard (here is a link to his last Cache Hikers event, a 2013 wildflower walk in Sink Hollow).  You can download his obituary or go to the Herald Journal article.
