This trip is designed for the hard core four wheeler that wants to tackle one of the Moab area’s famous tough trail segments. The Rusty Nail segment is combined with a couple of the Golden Spike Trail’s obstacles and the Gold Bar Rim Trail to complete a loop. The Rusty Nail section adds some rather unforgiving climbs and a hairy sidehill section to get the adrenalin pumping.
Scenery: The “usual” Gold Bar Rim scenery, which means sweeping vista that include the Moab Valley, Arches National Park, the LaSal Mountains, the Bookcliffs, and the Colorado River canyon.
Obstacles: Slickrock, steep ledges, large boulders, off camber traverses, and a steep waterfall rock make up this trip. Named Obstacles: Riff Raff, No Left Turn, Golden Spike, Golden Crack, Golden Stairs, Double Whammy, Body Snatcher.
Trail Rating: Black
