Trail Description
About this trail
This trail encompasses several trails including Burro Pass, Hazard County, and Porcupine Rim. You start out at 10000ft, and climb about another 1400 to Burro Pass, then the downhill insanity starts. Thru wooded forests, Aspen Pine lands, creeks, then down open prairie land and thru miles of technical really fast, crazy steep and slippery single track until you get to the Upper and lower Porcupine sections, then you finally end up at the Colorado River. This is the most technically diverse and by far the most fun ride I have ever done. I don't believe you could find one ride that has it all like this does.Took about 5 hours, but we stopped a lot for pictures, scenery, and just to in general take it all in. Amazing ride....

Q: is this doable in mid-April? -Rabbit88

A: Not a chance. Check with a local shop to get current info, but the LaSals will still be under plenty of snow. Porcupine Rim will definitely be a go and probably LPS. If you're lucky, you may get to to UPS as well, but anything above that almost certainly not be ready.

Review: This is a ride everyone should do at least once. I've done it 1.75 times, so to speak. The first we got a late start and skipped Burro Pass, but the second we did the whole thing. The ride has everything, what more can you say...

Review: First time doing the whole enchilada had done porcupine rim a few times. Riden a lot of trails throughout the United States this is got to be one of the best, if not the best trail ever. I think my upper body was more fatigued then my legs, did it on a hardtail it's a banging Trail. Super fun can't wait to do it again.

Review: GNARLY-EPICNESS, this is a must. If you come to Moab to do any trail, this should be it! Sadly a storm moved in on a Wednesday and got rained out on the first try, stopped at Kokopelli trailhead, it was just way too tacky to continue, the mud was chaotic. One day is all this place needs to dry out. Second try on Friday and it was perfect!! The Alpine dirt was just right, Hazard was just right and so was everything else. The only thing that wasn't, was my intermittent GoPro Hero 3. I was planning on riding this at least twice anyway. I would have rode again if I had more time. Soooo much fun, and the drops off the rocks ...wow. All I can say is, you'll ride like a pro. I couldn't help it and left the guys I was riding with. So peaceful and fast! Can't wait to do it again. Had one flat (ran the rear tire too low) the first try. Then the second, the stem bolts for the bar clamp were loose after the ride, and that's a Spike race stem torqued @ 9nm, yes I carry the torque wrench. lol That's just to give you an idea of how gnarly of a trail this is. Had a blast! Recommend trying out Knotch when you get to the Rim section, it's sweet!

Similar Trail: lol Nope.

Review: Incredibly epic. Best trail I've ever done in my entire life. In June get a friend to come along on a trip, have them shuttle you to geyser pass (Shuttles don't start shuttling to geyser pass until July 1). Ride down to the Mason Draw campground, located less than than a half a mile from Kokopelli. By late June there is not much snow at Burro (but the few fields are waist deep!).Don't worry about the heat as Masons Dram is located at 8500 feet and is cool. The next day wake up at daybreak (6ish during June) Barrel down the rest of the trail beating the extreme heat. Then your friend just picks you up! Have your doubts about that plan but it worked for me!

Similar Trail: Nothing like it
