Hero: Where Eagles Dare
small-sr Icon
If you are looking for the steepest, longest climbs in all of Moab, Where Eagles Dares is the trail you need to conquer! This trail is a side spur off of Golden Spike and travels entirely along large slickrock fins with constant changes in elevations. This trail gets your attention from the very beginning with several steep uphill climbs and downhill descents on its way to an amazing overlook of Bootlegger Canyon with the Corona Arch and a tiny glimpse of the Colorado River making up the backdrop. Take an optional slow loop around the Where Eagles Dare namesake obstacle and finish off the trip winding your way up and over Phobia Hill before reconnecting with Golden Spike. There is no camping along this trail due to the very steep terrain.
