Elephant Head

1 to 2 Hours

This trail is an easy walk at first, and as it gets steeper there are switchbacks and a set of stairs to keep it from getting too steep. 

The foot trail starts from the back of trailhead parking and passes by boulders blocking vehicular traffic. The trail leaves the old road on the right and starts and easy to moderate climb up to the ridge. A slight descent on the opposite side will bring you to your final climb. There is an old wood staircase that brings you to the top. There are excellent views out over Lake Titus and Titusville Mountain. A secondary view, slightly obstructed, gives you views of the Humbug Mountains. 

How do I get there?

Follow Route 30 south out of Malone and continue for about 10 miles to the trailhead on the left. The dirt access road is roughly 1.5 miles, but it's in rough shape. The foot trail is located at the end of the road.
