Golden Spike

Golden Spike Professional Review and Guide

"A dream trail of challenging obstacles which include such well-known names as the Launch Pad, Skyline Drive, Golden Crack, Golden Stairs, and Double Whammy. Much of the trail skirts the edge of high cliffs overlooking Moab. The trail cannot be accessed directly from any paved highway. To reach Golden Spike you must first drive Poison Spider Mesa from the south or Gold Bar Rim from the north.

Most people drive the trail from south to north. One of the toughest hard-core trails in the Moab area. Climb and descend numerous high rock ledges. Daunting slickrock maneuvers. Few bypasses. Differential lockers, high ground clearance, and body protection highly recommended. Vehicle suspension is severely tested. Route-finding is extremely difficult with few landmarks to guide you. The trail has been painted with gold spike symbols, but most are worn away."
