I love this trail, it has some challenging climbs and drops, will challenge your skills and can be done by an intermediate who doesn't mind hopping off their bike for 2' drops. I love any trail in Moab...the scenery is amazing.

If you have a 4x4 that is lifted, and you like a hard 4x4 ride, this one is for you. My Jeep is lifted 3 inches and I have lockers. I never used my lockers but then again, I know how to get the best line and speed. I did however go to 4low on this trail. Great views and... More

Amazing views, a variety of landscape, and a fun, challenging trail! This trail has a little bit of everything! It's very challenging, so make sure you're an "expert" driver with the correct equipment. This was our first time on Poison Spider and we had no issues with our Jeep. It is now on our list of favorites and we can't... More

A difficult off-road trail with a variety of terrains, very good views of the desert, wildlife, obstacles to overcome, and plenty of thrill if you are driving a 4x4. After a few miles it crosses another, even more difficult trail. Highly recommended.

Took in Poison Spider bike trail today. Tough trail for the intermediate rider, lots of jeeps and motorcycles. Beautiful day, not too hot, Will most likely ride the trail before we leave but, will most likely Walk every once in awhile in the really hairy spots. Well laid out, well marked, and definitely challenging for mountain bike enthusiasts.

It was very hot and no shade. Loved the challenge. Did not do the whole trail because it was too close to dark and did not want top be on the trail after dark.

I've ridden this trail dozens of times on my mountain bike. It's a fun ride for those who enjoy technical riding and climbing. If you're not an experienced rider this probably isn't the trail for you as the climbs can be tricky and so can the descent. You can ride back down the 4x4 road or head down the Portal... More

I always pegged this as a great 1st time Moab 4wd trail, but depending on your experience, this may be further up the ladder for you.. Thrilling climbs, awesome tippy spots and of course, the scenery is unlike anywhere else in the states. I've driven this trail in the heat of the summer, the dead of winter, and under blinding...
