The Old Ephraim Trail makes a loop off of Hardware Ranch Road, winding its way through a beautiful mountain forest. About 1.5 miles from the start, you come into a clearing with expansive views of the surrounding mountain landscape in all directions. Special Attractions: The story of, and monument to, Old Ephraim; Aspen viewing in the fall; Moderately challenging 4WD road. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
