Description

The Golden Spike Trail is old-school Moab. It's a 4x4 route accessed from Poison Spider or Gold Bar Rim Road.

The entire route follows along sloping sandstone with an endless helping of steep, tough uphills, steps downs and ledges.

Overall, the route is a rock lover's dream with about seven miles of challenging, pretty rugged track.
