A sharp curved ridge, orientated generally W-E, and extending for about 0.5 mi, with the highest point at the center rising to 6999m. The N slopes are snow and ice free, and the central point is situated about 0.7 mi SSE of Khufu Peak and 0.9 mi SW of Giza Peak. Uranus Glacier forms the S boundary of the feature. Elephant Ridge is referred to as Man Pack Hill in scientific reports in the early 1960s, and is locally known descriptively as The Elephant. The summit resembles an elephant's head, with the ridge forming the trunk.
