Trail Information


Rusty Nail is a difficult rock crawling 4x4 trail that is a "shortcut" to the most popular, and most difficult obstacles on the Golden Spike & Gold Bar Rim trails. This trail will challenge the most seasoned veteran wheeler both physically and mentally. Large, off camber, undercut ledges, true to the Moab testament, make up the majority of the obstacles on Rusty Nail. Although there are only 4 named main obstacles, the trail is riddled with numerous challenges and no bypasses. There are alternate routes on a couple obstacles, but those alternate routes prove to be just as difficult if not more difficult than the main route.
