Popular hard-core trail gets you to Golden Spike.

Fun-filled combination of challenging obstacles and incredible scenery. Most people drive the first half of route on their way to Golden Spike, Trail #29. But don’t miss the loop. It’s an entirely different experience featuring a sandy play hill, amazing slickrock climbs, a stunning overlook and a very unique arch. We also found the loop great fun in our Polaris RZR. This is a popular mountain bike trail. Drive with caution and be courteous to bikers at all times. If you have time, take the side trip to Barney’s Overlook (see map).


Trail Ratings Defined

Large awkward ledges with tippy spots. Many (not all) have bypasses. Modified vehicles with bigger tires, lockers and high ground clearance are best suited, but some drivers of newer aggressive stock SUVs are getting through with careful tire placement and the help of a good spotter.
