This extremely challenging and difficult trail is nevertheless passable for an experienced driver in a high-clearance stock SUV with good tires. The trail is short, but it will still take the best part of a day to drive, especially if you take the side trail to the confluence of the Colorado and Green Rivers. Elephant Hill is one trail on which you want to have a camera or better still a video—most people will be amazed at what their vehicle can do! Special Attractions: Extremely challenging and technical trail; Canyonlands National Park; Spectacular red rock scenery along Devil’s Lane. Skilled, experienced four-wheel drivers only. This trail includes very challenging sections with extremely steep grades, loose surfaces, large rocks, deep ruts, and/or tight clearances. Mud or sand may necessitate winching.
