Though John thought The Slick Rock Trial was the best trail I would have to say
Poison Spider Mesa is. This rock art is near parking area for this trail.
From the beginning of the trail you can get great views of the Behind the Rocks
Wilderness area. To help stop the spread of wilderness areas you should look into
joining the Blue Ribbon Collation or the AMA.
Pig Rock is a major land form in the area
and should be used to help you keep your sense of direction.
One of the views from the top of the mesa near the start of the trail.
Little arch is on the edge of the mesa. Little arch is really not that little,
if you look close you can see John standing near the top right of the arch.
View near the edge of the cliff at Little arch down to the Colorado River.
To me this is what makes this trail so much fun. One second you are
inching along in a technical
area and the next you are on slick rock and that is followed by
ripping it up in the sand dunes.
If you are like us you will not like riding on sand at first but once you get it
figured out it is very fun and nothing else is like it.
Take 191 north out of Moab. After crossing the Colorado river look
for Hwy279 on the left and turn there. In a few miles you will see signs marking
the parking area for Poison Spider Mesa.
