Overview

A short distance north of downtown Moab, Metal Masher features steep ascents and descents, off-camber sections, and numerous ledges up to 48 inches tall. The trail is peppered with large boulders, narrow ledges, and tight squeezes. All demand precision driving. A popular trail not only for its technical rock crawling challenges but also for its breathtaking scenic views from atop Arth's Rim, it's no surprise Metal Masher is recognized as a Jeep Badge of Honor trail.
