Hero: Barney's Overlook
small-sr Icon

Barney's Overlook is a spur trail off the northeast portion of the Poison Spider loop that takes you to an epic campsite behind Pig Rock with an incredible bird's eye view of the downtown Moab Valley. The road to the two viewpoints along the cliff edge starts as a sandy trail but quickly transitions to a rough, slow, and rocky track across many small, jagged, slickrock ledges. Camping at the end is exposed to the wind depending on direction, but the ground is level. A few soft sandy spots will make for a great floor bottom for a tent.

This trail is suitable for any high clearance 4x4.
