The world-famous Porcupine Rim trail is a Moab Classic! An iconic ride that needs to be on every cyclist's bucket list. It's a long pedal up from town and best when shuttled to the top. The Porcupine Rim trail is the last section of the Whole Enchilada trail system.
The trail begins as a double track and climbs for three (3) miles to the Porcupine Rim Overlook and LPS (lower porcupine single track) intersection. Enjoy breathtaking views of Castle Valley and grab a snack. Continue down a jeep road with high speed, drops, ledges, rock gardens, and the standard Moab chunky gnar. It's not all downhill yet as there are still a few bumps and super brief climbs. Stick to the trail or choose to session the optional jumps and larger drops. Once you arrive at the Porcupine Singletrack, it's on! Enjoy sending it down miles of fast, narrow, technical, exposed ledgy, single track with magnificent views down to the Colorado River.
Just remember: When In Doubt, Walk It Out!
The trail ends at the Porcupine Rim parking lot on the beautiful Colorado River located adjacent to Grandstaff Campground.
