Elephant Rock Trail is a 3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Markleeville, CA that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, horses, and mountain biking and is accessible from May until October. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Very easy hike with great views of the lakes. This hike takes you along two lakes and slight slopes over crops of granite to a large rock that is for some reason called Elephant Rock. I could not see why.
