    Great hike! We completed this hike on an unseasonably cool April day that had high temps in the low 80s. My son and I used 2 liters of water apiece, so if you go during warmer weather, carry plenty of water. I'm not sure if the creek runs all summer, but if you carry a water filter, that is an option as well.

    This is a beautiful riparian habitat. You will hike from the creek with cottonwoods and sycamores to the high desert dodging prickly pear cactus on steep and narrow trails. Portions of the trail are smooth dirt, but much of the trail is narrow and rocky with lots of rolling rocks underfoot, so watch your footing. The trail is not hard to follow, but it is just rough enough it might take you a little more time than you might think.

    Based upon the recommendation of others, we completed the loop in a clockwise direction. This gives you more shade and creek access during the latter part of the hike when the sun is higher.

    The area is fairly remote and I had no cell service (Verizon) during the hike, and I didn't reconnect to service for several miles after leaving the trailhead. The dirt road leading to the trailhead is several miles of rough washboard, but it is very well maintained, and any passenger car can drive it easily.

    Put this one on your list, and have fun!

    Great hike! We did the Metate loop first which added a couple miles. It is a great hike with wonderful views at the top. The trail is somewhat rough on the Elephant portion, but it is very doable. There is not much shade so bring plenty of water. My 11 year old downed his 2 liter Camelbak and then some! Will definitely do again.

    This was our first time in the White Tanks. $6 per vehicle park fee, but it was well worth it. Great trail and views. MapMyFitness logged it as 8.77 miles, while AllTrails logged 8.1.
