The Elephant Arch trail takes you an arch resembling an elephant's head and trunk. The first half of the trail is easy walking along a double track, then up a sandy wash, You encounter typical low land desert landscape, lots of red rocks, and a cool arch at the end.

The end of this hike is worth 5 stars, but overall I give it four. If you start your hike where the pavement currently ends (the entrance to the Brio home development), it’s about 7 miles round trip up to Elephant Arch and back. Once you get off the unpaved dirt road and start your ascent up Bone Wash, heading toward the arch, the real beauty of this hike begins.
