Elephant Tusk Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A hike could hardly begin in a more dramatic setting. At the Dodson/Elephant Tusk Trail junction, the massive cliffs of the South Rim climb nearly 2,500 feet above you. To the northeast is the volcanic ridgeline of Crown Mountain; to the south are the wild canyons and heights of the Sierra Quemada. In the far distance, the mountains and desert valleys of Mexico continue to the horizon."
