This is one of the most popular trails in Moab and is often combined with Golden Spike and Gold Bar Rim. Poison Spider Mesa is a fun-filled combination of challenging obstacles and incredible scenery. The second half of the trail passes by impressive Little Arch on the way to an outstanding overlook of the entire Moab area. Mountain biking is extremely popular on this trail. Drive with caution and be courteous to bikers at all times. A classic hard-core trail with many challenging obstacles including tight switchbacks, high irregular ledges, steep slickrock climbs, and several tippy spots. Few stock vehicles can complete this trail without body damage. Vehicle modifications including differential lockers are highly recommended. Route-finding is relatively easy on the first half of Poison Spider Mesa but after the turn for Golden Spike, it becomes difficult.
