Project-JK Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2008
Day 4 – Canyonlands Elephant Hill Trail

This Project-JK Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2008 YouTube video represents the final installment of our EJS adventures and is of our Day 4 run across the Elephant Hill Trail. Located south of Moab in Canyonlands National Park, Elephant his is by far one of the most beautiful trails you can run in the Moab area and is a must see for anyone visiting the area. You will have to pay a small entrance fee in order to get in the park but trust me, it’s worth every penny. The Elephant Hill Trail itself isn’t very difficult but there are a few sections along the way that have big enough rocks and ledges to negotiate that will give a stock Jeep some trouble and is most likely why it gets a “most difficult” rating. The trail is run as a loop and I would highly recommend that you take the time to hike the 1/2 mile trail out to the Confluence Overlook as the view is simply breathtaking.

Once again, in addition to our normal SoCal crew, Jen (toad), Jeff (Bullfrog), Cindy (WOLette) and I, we were also fortunate enough to get Wayne, his wife Kathy and son Aaron as well as Brian (Bracket) and his wife Lauren to join us on this run again as well.

While we did go on a few more short runs, this video of our trip through Canyonlands on the Elephant Hill Trail will be the last one from our Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2008 adventure. If we can find the time, we will try to make one last one that contains highlights as well as scenes from around town, at our Meet-n-Greet, on the Hell’s Revenge Trail and more. But, until then, thanks for watching our videos and be sure to check back for upcoming episodes we are working on now featuring trips across the Mojave Desert and into Death Valley.



  1. Excellent video (as always from PJK) It was on this trail a few years ago, while riding in a built up TJ of a friends that I started thinking of swapping my built CJ5 for something a little more refined so I could do long runs to the trailheads and enjoy tunes, a/c, and the like.

    Now, I have the Unlimited Rubicon, I can’t wait to return. The drive from Chicken Corners to the Park entrance on a moderate 4×4 road is a beautiful way to get there, with a little 4×4 action along the way in a couple of spots.

    There are several other designated 4×4 trails in Canyonlands that are also not too difficult, but well worth taking. Many arches, huge rock formations, historical sites, and primative campsites that are all 4×4 accessible. Check at the ranger station for maps and permits.
