Summary: The 6+ rated Gold Bar Rim trails offers obstacles to keep your eye out for along with fantastic views.
Location: The trail leaves Highway 191 to the west about 7 miles north of the Colorado River bridge. The trail follows Little Canyon and then turns back toward the Rim through Gold Bar Canyon.
The Trail: Many people just think of this trail as the exit route for Holden Spike, but Gold Bar Rim is really a memorable 4×4 trail by itself. The route is completely different going up than coming down and short enough to do both ways in a half day. Around every turn there’s a surprising view and the final overlook is dizzying. Fun for UTVs!
The Gold Bar cliff rim is about 1200 feet above Highway 191. Since the rock slopes down to the west, the views in all directions are spectacular. Bull Canyon is also visited with a stop at a breathtaking dry 300 foot waterfall and a view of Gemini Bridges from below.
The most difficult driving is up the final slopes to Gold Bar Rim but the trail is sure to excite all along the way. The final ledge is just a short walk from the rim and some will park below that obstacle rather than risk the damage. MUST TRAILER
