Mountain Biking Portal Trail

****   Add a review
#33 of 696 mountain bike trails in Utah
#473 in the world

Very technical with extreme exposure. There are signs that say riders were killed on the trail - likely by falling over the cliff. Do not ride this from the bottom up, but use this route to finish riding Gold Bar Rim or Poison Spider (for a loop). Bring a camera and pay attention.
