This route, the most challenging one in this book, follows the one-way Elephant Hill Loop Road, dozed by ranchers in prepark days and now one of Utah’s most famous 4WD roads. From the rockwalled troughs called grabens to the Cedar Mesa sandstone spires of the Needles and the confluence of the Colorado and Green rivers, the sights you will encounter are unsurpassed in beauty and scale. If you’re observant, you might even spot prehistoric rock art. This route can be used to access BLM-managed Beef Basin.
