Within the Arizona Strip, high above the Virgin River Gorge and I-15, there is a very scenic 4x4 trail leading to a naturally formed Elephant Arch. The trail offers mild challenges for stock 4x4 vehicles while providing breathtaking vistas of the surrounding Virgin and Beaver Dam Mountains. The Virgin River has created several impressive Southwestern landscapes, beginning within the great white cliffs and canyons of Utah's Zion National Park, before ending at Lake Mead, where it eventually meets the Colorado River. Deep within the Virgin River Gorge, the river flows across the northwestern tip of Arizona for 30 miles, creating Grand Canyon-like scenery of eroded cliffs and terraces of metamorphosed sandstone. This easy 4x4 trail travels high above the gorge, along the edge of the rim leading to various scenic points where you can see for miles through the gorge.
