Raptor Route is Moab's newest trail system. It has become an instant local favorite and must-do ride. This 9.5-mile intermediate trail is rated a blue square. With nothing too technical (by Moab standards) it's fun, fast, and flowy. That said, the lower section (Falcon Flow) is less technical than the top portion.
Raptor Route is comprised of two new trails: Eagle Eye is 2.3-mile singletrack that makes up the top section of Raptor Route, and Falcon Flow is a 5.7-mile singletrack trail making up the bottom portion.
Connecting these two trails is the classic Porcupine Rim 4x4 road which is the most technical part of the Raptor Route. Expect rock gardens, small ledges, and off-camber sections on the Porcupine Rim 4x4 road. The concept of this trail system is to offer an alternative option to exit the Whole Enchilada trail allowing riders to bypass the Porcupine Rim trail.
To ride Raptor Route follow the purple signs from Eagle Eye down to the Lazy Man's Road trailhead. Once you connect to the Porcupine Rim 4x4 road, head left and exit onto Sand Flats Road. The Falcon Flow trailhead is located 800' on the right-hand side of the road.
Another popular advanced option is to add part of the Whole Enchilada trail system to your ride. From the drop-off location, pedal up Sand Flats road 1.3 miles to the Kokopelli trailhead. Enter the Kokopelli trail (marker 3464) and pedal an additional 1.7 miles up to the intersection of the UPS (upper porcupine single track) and Kokopelli trail. Make a left onto UPS and exit LPS (lower porcupine single track) to Eagle Eye.
