This sign marks the end of the Beef Basin Trail.
Unlicensed ATV and Dirt Bikes must stop at this point.
Only Dual Sport Motorcycles and Jeeps can continue into
Canyonlands National Park.
Since ATVs and Jeeps are not allowed into Canyonlands I would
recommend that you do not continue past Bobby's Hole hill while exploring
the Beef Basin area. You will know the hill when you see
it, it is not too tough to get down but would be very difficult
to go back up.
In my opinion of the thousands of miles of backcountry roads and
trails I have been Elephant Hill Road is simply the scenic of
Instead of towering trees we drove our KTM bikes through
Much of the trail leading up to the Joint Hiking trail is easy
There are also several slick rock sections along Elephant Hill
If you like red rocks this part of southern Utah is the best.
If you keep a watchful eye you will be able to spot Anasazi art
work on the walls of some of the canyons.
Anasazi Pictographs irreplaceble please do not touch them, this
one had several bullet holes in it.
As you can see from my Delorme GPS to complete the Beef Basin
Loop through Canyonlands National Park took us 98.36 miles.
Make sure your bike has enough range to complete the loop. We
took an extra gallon of gas with us and had to use it.
