This hike will begin at the Sandy Seep Trailhead on Hwy. 89 east of the Dry Lake Hills.
Then it will take the Sandy Seep, the Christmas Tree, the west side of Fatmans Loop,
and the Pipeline Trails to the homestead of John Elden, for whom Mount Elden is named.
Remnants from his ranch, his son’s grave, and the spring that led him to settle
in this spot still remain.
From there we’ll return by the same route, except for hiking the east side of the Fatmans Loop trail.
