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....

Review: The whole enchilada is unique in that you get such a variety of trail types, but overall I think there are more fun trails to ride.

Review: Wonderful place. Absolutely in heaven the whole time. I now see why this is a bucket list ride. So much better than the local slick rock trail that is better known in the area. Some consider it peddly, but thems just be the out of shape folk. Even when you're peddling, if you aren't on one of the uphill sections, you can still be running a big ring and hammering the nasties. I was running a 6" 29er and was in absolute heaven. When you finish youll have a gentle ride a the river back into town epic! Love this place.

Review: Overhyped? Good trail, but not the best in the US. Scenery was great, but very peddley for the amount of descent. Most of the drops are blind, except for the copious amounts of black skid marks on the rock. Hiline in Sedona is better in my opinion.

Review: Rode this in early September last year. There is a reason this is considered Mecca for mtbers. This is a epic trail and experience. One of my favorite times on a mountain bike, ever. Hard to get a lot of flow going because we had to stop constantly to take pictures : ) Even though it is well hyped and lives up to it, this is a serious ride and should be taken very seriously. As another post pointed out this is advanced riding, not intermediate trail. There are parts that are relentles and require fitness and skill to ride well.

Review: Such a great trail, bucket list. Started in the trees, ended in the rocky town of Moab. My favorite trail by a mile. Nothing like it

Review: At the time of writing this, the singletracks description shows The Whole Enchilada as an intermediate trail of 26 miles... I rode 34 miles from the trailhead back to northern Moab. It needs advanced riding skills - it's not an intermediate trail. And you need to be fit and hardened up with lots of recent riding - this trail throws sustained juddery, rocky, technical riding at you for nearly 30 miles. The trail and the scenery varies with each passing mile. The panoramas are stunning and often other-worldly. It's a magical trail but there is one long section of bumpy double-track that does become tiresome. You will have forgotten it by the time the Colorado River comes into view way below as you ride around a cliff face before descending to the road.

Review: Yes, it's what everyone says. Don't be fooled by the elevation profile - it's not like 4 lift serviced rides strung together or the Downieville Downhill. A lot of work, consistent moderate technical riding, and mid-day scorching desert heat when you drop into Porcupine Rim. Save some extra water, food, sugar for this section especially if riding in summertime. I saw more than a couple riders unprepared for this.
