Elephant Canyon

The challenging Elephant Hill Loop starts at the end of the main scenic drive through the Needles. It is tremendously steep, narrow and rough from the outset and features some swithchbacks so sharp you need to do difficult backing manuvers to make the turns. The challenge is exhiliarating and the views great. It provides access to the Devils Lane and the Confluence Overlook routes described below.
