Trail Overview

This is a fun excursion that will depart from the Elephant Cove Trailhead near Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. It starts with a short climb up a slick rock face. From there you will follow some very sandy trails with two relatively steep, deep sand drops that will add a little spice to the adventure. You can loop back to the Elephant Cove trailhead or backtrack. Don't depart the dinosaur track area without reading the available information and then go out and try your hand at finding the tracks. Be careful and please do not walk on the tracks.

Difficulty

This is an easy track just be cautious when climbing the slick rock and going down the steeper, sandy slopes to keep the vehicle under control.
