Highlight: Elbow Canyon
There are numerous ways to gain entry into the remote Grand Canyon-Parashant region. One of the most challenging is Elbow Canyon outside Mesquite, Nevada. This trail is ideal for those looking for an authentic 4x4 experience without needing a heavily modified vehicle. It climbs up from the flat desert through the very scenic Elbow Canyon within the Virgin Mountains. The trail passes a couple of primitive campsites, with the best being an old ranch that offers spectacular views of the valley below and room for a small group to relax under the stars. The trail continues to climb along narrow ledge switchbacks that expose even more impressive views of the desert below. Once you're over the pass, the route will connect you with 1004 Black Rock Mountain, where you'll have your choice of how to continue your memorable adventure within the Arizona Strip.
