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: I am astounded at all of the positive reviews on this trail. With so many other choices in Moab (Captain Ahab), I don't understand the attraction. Granted, the beauty and variety are remarkable, but the riding is inferior. After the two times I have done it, I had to go to the dentist to reattach fillings jarred loose by the trail. It beats you to death. UPS and LPS are welcome relief to the pounding. My riding buddies agree, if you do the Whole Enchilada, you are missing far better rides in Moab.

Review: 7k of descent from Buro Pass to the Colorado River not 4400! I have done it twice and loved every bit of it. I November I found the stream crossings at the upper elevations to be icy. Pack some good snacks and don't forget the GoPro! This ride is epic!

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.
