Elephant Hill Professional Review and Guide

"Beautiful scenery combined with just the right amount of challenge. This one-way loop is one of the most enjoyable trails I’ve ever driven. Take the spur to the Confluence Overlook to see the point where the Colorado and Green Rivers converge. No permit is required to drive the trail although one is required to camp overnight. No pets or firearms. Pack out all trash. Carry at least one gallon of water per person per day. Steep, narrow, rocky ascents and descents. The switchbacks on Elephant Hill require backing.

Although Canyonlands National Park tries to maintain the trail for stock vehicles, constant deterioration makes this difficult. If you drive a stock vehicle, ask at the visitor center for latest conditions. This is not a trail for beginners; experience is necessary. High ground clearance, skid plates, and rocker panel protection are recommended to avoid body damage. The trail is well marked and easy to follow."
