Was a great tour!!! We had rain and a little bit snow! You have to be carefull, the stones with the sandy shoes are slippery when wet!

Hiked Elephant Hill to first 1.2 miles of the Chesler Park loop. 8 miles totall Good work out with rewarding views of the Needles formations. Pretty hot in late September. Bring lots of waters and snacks. You won't want to turn back early. ( you'll need to drive a narrow dirt road for 2 miles to get to the trailhead parking lot but easy for 2-wheel drive, just go slow on the curves looking for oncoming vehicles)

A great warm up trail for EJS. A 4 on the Moab scale. Stock JKs can make it fine. Only once did I use a locker and that was just to get over a waterfall. Enjoy!!!
