A shuttle hike through some of the best scenery in the Needles District. If your party has two vehicles, or you’re staying at the Squaw Flat Campground and one member of your party volunteers to drop you off at Elephant Hill Trailhead, this is a great day hike. Although the Needles District has a great variety of quality hiking opportunities, there aren’t many hikes in the moderate, 5-mile range, so if that distance suits you, this trail is an excellent choice. You can do the shuttle in reverse, but this description starts at Elephant Hill Trailhead.
