Hike through Upper Fusselman Canyon to a scenic overlook. Follow the trail up the canyon. At 0.45 miles, the main trail keeps right. DO NOT follow the wash up. At 0.5 miles the trail will zig-zag up the hillside covered in red rhyolite rock to the ridgeline. On the ridgeline at 0.80 miles, turn left and follow the trail up to the Elephant's Trunk at N31.86502 - W106.49520. There are a few small caves at the trunk. There are several possible trails up and down, so pick your route as you like.

we only went 1.5 mile in which is almost to the top before we turned around. I wish I would have had a walking stick. about 3/4 mile in someone marked the trail with blue spots. It would have been helpful on the start which was a lot of climbing and trying to figure out where the trail went. all in all it is a fantastic hike. looking forward to completing the whole 7 mile out and back.
