It was very hot and no shade. Loved the challenge. Did not do the whole trail because it was too close to dark and did not want top be on the trail after dark.

I've ridden this trail dozens of times on my mountain bike. It's a fun ride for those who enjoy technical riding and climbing. If you're not an experienced rider this probably isn't the trail for you as the climbs can be tricky and so can...More

I always pegged this as a great 1st time Moab 4wd trail, but depending on your experience, this may be further up the ladder for you.. Thrilling climbs, awesome tippy spots and of course, the scenery is unlike anywhere else in the states. I've driven...More

While this is an ORV and bike trail, I hiked part of it during the government shutdown. You can easily step aside whenever bikes or jeeps come by. The hike it's worth it because after about an hour of walking you will be rewarded with...More

I took down Poison Spider in a Can-Am 650 Outlander XT. This is an advanced rider type of trail. The toughest part is the 1st 4 miles. Go to Youtube and look up some videos and you will see what I'm talking about. Give yourself...More

We were there during July so it was over 100 every day, so unless you go in the fall or early spring, make sure to have plenty of water and be in shape for the hikes. Mahalo

This is not a beginners trail. It is a good work out, and a fun and dangerous return. You must be skilled, or risk serious injury..
