Is The Portal Trail In Moab The Deadliest In The USA? Not If Your Afraid Of Heights

A Reputation For Being One Of The Deadliest Trails In The USA

The Portal Trail is a very technical trail located in Utah that descends from the top of the Poison Spider Mesa to the Colorado River.

Why is it considered one of the deadliest? This trail drops 1,000 feet in just under a mile while riding next to a 1,300 foot rock cliff where one slip could be fatal. This trail is not for the beginner, its can be scary, unforgiving and people have fallen and died here…but the scenery is spectacular!

From Nick Wilder:

The big boulders seem to reach out and want to push you over the cliff!

Below is a picture of flowers left on the trail, we don’t know who it is in the memory of.
