Trail Description
About this trail
To put this ride down in words would do it no justice!! You must ride Porcupine Rim and see it first hand for yourself! Great climb at the beginning, breathtaking views of Castle Valley from the rim, followed by an extremely technical downhill. And then to top off, some of the most amazing singletrack anywhere! One of the riders in our group, Steve, put it perfectly...."That was the most technical singletrack I've ever walked!!" And Steve is an excellent rider, so may that be a warning to the beginner/intermediate riders out there!!

Review: Rode the whole enchilada and this was definitely the one of the best parts! What a ride!
I was smiling the whole way down, I hardly noticed the cliff off my right hand side flying down the ridge. I passed a lot of people on the way down, and I can see that the draw but be warned this technical, adrenaline, non-XC ride. Spandex folks stay away.
It's fun, but be prepared, it's no cake walk. The bus tours up should be warning the un-initiated.

Review: This was 15 miles of sandy goodness. by far the best trail I have been on, not that I have ridden a lot of them. My recommendation is to either ride tubeless or bring multiple tubes or patch kits. I passed no less than 6 riders stopped with flats. When I got to the bottom, I noticed that I had several holes in my tires that the Stan's fluid had sealed.

Review: I rode it because of all the hype I heard about it and although it was really fun I think it is over rated. The rock jeep road just went on and on without variety. I loved UPS above it and the bottom single track closer to the bottom was also great. Great trail but there are lots of better trails around. The town of Moab was a huge disappointment as it is basically a bunch of stores, etc... on a highway. I road Phil's World in Cortez, Colorado the day before and liked it a lot more.

Review: What else can be said about PR? A Classic Moab ride. Open it up and get rowdy! Interestingly enough, a couple buddy first-timers didn't find it that great, but their expectation was that this was a super flowy singletrack. It's not. It's sort of like an old jeep trail that's super rugged and fast. Yes, there is singletrack, but a lot of it is not. They didn't care for it but it is what it is.

Review: Rode over Thanksgiving Friday. Great trail, tests your ability and confidence in many sections. Koko (from Mtn Pass Rd.) and small part of UPS had snow but overall a fantastic ride. Moab is quickly becomming THE spot with great new trails, many more planned, and great classics!

Review: Porcupine Rim should be the top rated mountain bike trail on earth. This ride includes a fun and challenging climb, amazing views, technical rock, and fun single track. It is the best ride ever

Review: We did this after Klondike Bluffs and Slickrock. Our starting point was UPS but I wished we had done the Whole Enchilada. This is truly the best mountain bike epic in the world. If you are half decent do it and do not be hesitant because of certain reviews. However you must be in shape and allow plenty of time. There are good shuttles in Moab. Coyote Express is my recommendation. Make sure you have a map, food, and tools. The views are awesome.

Review: Just rode the trail today, 5/18, and it is in wonderful this time of year. Not to hot yet, completely dry and insane Terrian. Definitely a must do in Moab.
