    From the Squaw campground it is about a 24 mile ride. What a great great ride with a bit of everything including some slick rock. Elephant Hill is a very tough, albeit short, climb, and will test your skills early on. The greatest thing about this ride is the solitude and the incredible scenery of the Needles region. Bring a camera and don't be in a hurry.
    I did get caught in a hail storm, but in the Devils Kitchen there are plenty of overhangs. The ride out to the confluence overlook is sandy and was covered in tumbleweeds that made life interesting. The 1/3 mile hike to the overlook is worth it. The return loop is pretty sandy but nothing that isn't rideable. Great early season ride. I saw one ORV at the confluence, and that was it. No other bikers or ORV. The only downside is that it is a 75 minute drive from Moab, or is that an upside.
