EXPLORE POISON SPIDER TRAIL FOR A THRILLING OFF-ROAD ADVENTURE IN MOAB, UT!

This trail is rated difficult due to the several obstacles almost from the start of the trail. Our guide is there to expertly help you navigate each one but this trail should be considered technically challenging and will be enjoyed by thrill seekers with great confidence behind the wheel. We do not require off-road/4X4 experience but strong driving skills will serve you well.

We begin from our location, cruising through Moab toward Potash Road. Potash Road is a stunning stretch along the Colorado River. This canyon, known as The Portal, between Poison Spider Mesa and Moab Rim is beautiful. We nearly always catch climbers making their way up the sheer cliffs of “Wall Street”. We make a brief stop at a vast and detailed petroglyph panel dating back over 8,000 years. Can you spot the bear with hunters depicted in this amazing art?

Continuing on to the trailhead, we climb the winding shelf road toward the top of the mesa. Rock ledges and rugged terrain begin immediately with the first major obstacle, The Gate Keeper, within the first 1/2 mile. Once atop the Mesa, a quick drop over a v-notch takes us to the first ledge climb. Next we climb a slickrock wall and travel through an ancient dry riverbed to the Poison Spider Waterfall. This dry waterfall obstacle is sure to thrill. The challenging Z-Turn is next followed by The Wedge. High Speed Mesa takes us toward Little Arch. Do you dare cross the arch? Maybe you’d rather explore a large wind cave while we marvel at views of the Colorado River, parts of the Moab Valley and Moab Rim Trail.

After the arch we climb more slick rock toward Giant Pothole where the exceptional vistas seem to go on forever.

This trail is a fantastic morning ride or join us for sunset. Our sunset spot allows you to enjoy sunset with the group or step away in awe of the extraordinary views enjoying your own space and making the experience uniquely yours.
