Trail Overview

Rusty Nail will eventually connect to the final portion of Golden Spike. It is extremely difficult, especially the Riff Raff obstacle. UTVs and ATVs will find it nearly impossible.

Difficulty

Extremely difficult. For big rigs and rock buggies only. Photos tell the story. Thanks to Moab Friends for Wheelin' for giving us a ride.
