Follow Kokopelli for about 2 miles. 2-track road gets rocky, loose and rutted out in areas, but contains fun jumps and fast action. There are a couple of short climbs. Stay on trail until you come to a cattle guard on the right. Cross the cattle guard and just ahead is a small 1-track (UPS) to the right. UPS is fun filled with some techno sections, steep drops and exposed areas to the right. GREAT views of Castle Valley. UPS continues to a campground area. Stay to the right and pick up LPS 1-track. LPS is techy fun. You will come upon a fork which will take you either to the "Notch" or down a steep drop on LPS. Both options are nearly unridable by most riders. If you take the "Notch", it will hook back up with the LPS trail below. Continue following LPS until you reach Porcupine Rim overlook. You can continue on with Porcupine Rim trail, or head back to town down Sand Flats Road.

Review: I reluctantly give this even 4 stars. I rode this as part of a modified Whole Enchilada from Hazzard County down. UPS was very fun and reminded me of Little Creek Mesa outside St George. However, all of the rocky ROAD riding on LPS was a severe letdown to me. The last few miles of singletrack leading down to the river helped save the 4 star rating.

Review: Rode UPS and LPS as part of the Porcupine Rim shuttle yesterday and it blew me away! I'll never ride the bottom of Porcupine again. Much of the ride is along the rim of the canyon, and the technical features are outstanding. Adding this to the Porcupine Rim Trail turn that epic ride into and EPIC ride.

Review: Excellent lead in to Porcupine Rim. Much narrower trail than Porcupine, with excellent features: drops, slickrock, views, etc. Love it!

Review: I've done this trail along with Porcupine, twice. I love it. Great mix of features. Drops, single track, exposure, views, fast sections, etc... Gets real slick in the snow.

Review: This is the best part of the run all the way down to the Colorado via Porcupine. Some steeps, some tech, all fun.
