Elephant Butte

Friends and I are going on our annual trip to Elephant Butte in August. This is the first time I will have my jeep!! We spend a majority of time on the lake, like everyone else, but this time I want to try and hit a couple nearby trails. Nothing difficult as the jeep will be our primary transportation for 4 days. Any suggestions? Google suggests the Geronimo trail byway for scenery, but its paved the whole way.

Quick question:

Has any Jeeper attempted to cross the puddle formerly known as "Elephant Butte" lately?

I'd like to be the first...
