One of Moab’s longest and most popular trails, with nonstop obstacles and many stunning overlooks. Its length comes from the fact that, to complete the trail, you must drive half of Poison Spider Mesa, all of Gold Bar Rim, and part of Gemini Bridges. Because breakdowns are common, it’s not unusual for people to finish well after dark. Therefore, it is recommended that you start early and travel with other vehicles that can help. Allow extra time on weekends when traffic is heavier. If your only interest is to drive the “Golden Crack”, save time by entering from the north end. The trail is extremely difficult for riders of ATVs.
