  • After we had made two hikes in northern part of the Park, we visited the southern section and made the Elephant Hill - joint trail loop hike. These I can recommend it to just anyone, I think was the best of the three walks that we had made in the Canyonlands!

  • We spent an afternoon in the Needles section of Canyonlands and hiked part of the Elephant Hill trail, but didn't have enough time to take it as far as I'd like to have. There's a short uphill section...  read more »
  • It is amazing what you can see in the rocks! Lots of things to imagine. Here you can see an elephant! Very cool and worth the picture! 
  • Best area of the park. Made it out on the 2wd trail with a low clearance sports car with no problem.
  • Awesome trail ride, great campgrounds at Devils Kithchen and much to explore!!
  • Loved it. Genuinely unique personality in this trail that sets it apart from the rest near Moab. It is a bit of drive to get to, but worth. Very technical, you will be reversing up and down slopes if you start this trail. A stock jeep jk should have few problems on this trail.
  • Great off-roading trail for those who have substantially capable vehicles. Some stock high-clearance 4x4s may make it unscathed but the trail is not for the faint of heart. There are a few tricky places where a spotter could be handy. Beautiful rock scenery and backcountry. Be sure to bring water and emergency supplies in case of complications. My Toyota FJ Cruiser did well and I know others who have done it in stock FJs or Jeeps. Canyonlands N.P. is awesome!
  • Fun run.
