Segments of centuries-old Indian trails between St. George and Long Valley were used by Mormon pioneers in 1864 to settle Long Valley and its resettlement in 1871 following Indian conflicts. The trail
divided at the area of this marker; the Elephant Trail took a northeasterly route while the alternate Cottonwood Canyon-Sand ridge Trail went more easterly before joining the Elephant Trail after it descended into Parunuweap Canyon/Long Valley. The desert trail, about 85 miles long, traversed deep sand, sandstone ledges and lava faults and was the primary transportation route, including mail and heavy freight, for half a century. It took 4 days for loaded wagons drawn by horse or ox teams to travel the distance.
