an ATV Trail, this ride to an area friends have called 'elephant rock', is easy / moderate and ends at the rock area. somewhere between easy and moderate this trail is wide BUT has some deep areas of gravel. once you get past the last wash area, it becomes more like a single track with some nice peeks and valleys before you end at the prize: a rock that looks like an elephant sitting down. many other trails branch out throughout this area and there is literally "ZERO" other people around except during snow bird season where some ATV's are on other trails in the area. this is on a side of the white tanks where nobody visits and doesn't include a fee. note: there is a gate and you officially should get a state trust land permit ($20 bucks) . hope you enjoy the ride

Access Info

I have started this trail at sun valley parkway and desert oasis Blvd. *today* there is open area/construction for you to start at. officially you can park at the Sun City Festival community parking lot and ride to the gate where the trail starts.
