Elephant Hill

Elephant Hill Professional Review and Guide

"The road over Elephant Hill is, in my opinion, the most challenging jeep road in Canyonlands National Park. It presents drivers with a series of obstacles ranging from loose rock and stairstep drops to steep grades with hairpin turns.

One of the turns is so tight that most vehicles must back down the succeeding switchback. With skill, however, the road can be negotiated with an ordinary 4WD vehicle-I have driven my Jeep Cherokee over Elephant Hill many times. The park service has even poured concrete in a few critical places to make the road passable for stock vehicles, but it is still a difficult road."
