It’s a long day but running this trail is very challenging and very rewarding. Lockers and good ground clearance is a must.

Extremely challenging! Gorgeous views! Great full day combination with Poison Spider.

Fun trail for 4X4 action with lots of scenery. I did the trifecta which is Poison Spider, Golden Spike, and Gold Bar Rim. It took me over 12 hours to complete but well worth the effort.
