Poison Spider trail is a short drive from town by U-278. We came to see petroglyphs and tracks. You can get very close to the petroglyphs.

Awesome trail. One of my favorites. It has a little bit of everything to offer on a 4x4. Some tougher obstacles, but a load of fun.

This is a great Jeep trail and also was popular with the ATV and bicyclists in the area. I would not do this Jeep trail alone as there are many obstacles that require expert citing or your Jeep could be in trouble. A fun trail...More

An excellent trail if you have experience or go with someone with experience to be a spotter...Some of the difficult parts have by passes.

The highlight is a block with some dinosaur prints on it lodged on the cliff. It was raining but enjoyable.

We rented a UTV and this was one of the suggested trails. I definitely do NOT recommend this trail for first-time, new or inexperienced UTV operators. It seems almost irresponsible to me that a rental company would suggest anyone at all would do this alone...More

Worth going to see Little Arch. It was a short walk. Lots of beautiful sceneries. Some of the trail was difficult and some easy.

We had a fun time on this trail. We crawled the rocks with two Rubicon's. One was rented from Twisted Jeeps. Our daughter crawled the rocks for the first time and loved it.

This was a nice trail. At first we had a hard time following the trail - but finally got it. The view are spectacular. Worth the hike. Wear sunscreen, drink lots of water, wear a hat and enjoy!
