Raptor Route is Moab's newest trail system becoming an instant local favorite and a must-do ride. This 10-mile trail offers fun, fast, and flowy intermediate singletrack with a few advanced sections. Raptor Route is comprised of three trails, Eagle Eye, Hawk’s Glide, and Falcon Flow. Eagle Eye officially opened in November 2021. It is the highest point of the Raptor Route and is 2.3 miles in length. Its access point is at the LPS trailhead on Sand Flats Road. Hawk’s Glide is the most recent installment opening in November of 2022 and spans two miles. It is the most advanced section of the Raptor Route, expect cliff exposure and technical sections. Hawk’s Glide offers epic views of the La Sals, Abajo, and Henry mountain ranges. Falcon Flow makes up the lower section of Raptor Route and is 5.7 miles long. A true intermediate trail by Moab standards with nothing too technically challenging. To keep Raptor Route on an intermediate level, bypass Hawk’s Glide and exit onto Sand Flats Road. Proceed down Sand Flats RD to the Falcon Flow trailhead.
Park your vehicle in the Falcon Flow finish parking lot to avoid the 6-mile pedal back into town.
Another popular advanced option is to add part of the Whole Enchilada trail system to your ride. From the LPS/Eagle Eye drop-off location, pedal up Sand Flats road 1.3 miles to the Kokopelli trailhead. Enter the Kokopelli trail (marker 3464) and pedal 1.7 miles up to the intersection of the UPS (upper porcupine single track) and Kokopelli trail. Make a left onto UPS then exit LPS (lower porcupine single track) to Eagle Eye.
