The 50K and 35K courses feature some incredible single track including a trip out of Cave Creek Regional Park along the Maricopa Trail to Spur Cross Ranch and back, finishing with a loop through Cave Creek Regional Park. The 12K course stays within Cave Creek Regional Park and features the Go John and new Quartz trail.

Elephant Mountain is the sixth race in the Desert Runner Trail Series. The Desert Runner Trail Series now has four point divisions: Quail (short), Roadrunner (middle), Owl (Trail), and Hawk (Ultra). The 12 Km race will score points towards the Quail series while the 22 Km race will score points in the Roadrunner division. The 35 Km race at San Tan Scramble will score points in the "Trail Series" while the 50 Km race will score points in the "Ultra Series." The series challenge culminates at the Mesquite Canyon Championship in March.
