Many mountain bike trail grand openings have been put on hold indefinitely, and even trail building efforts have slowed considerably over the past few weeks. As a result, we expect a surge of delayed trails to come online later this spring and summer.
One new trail that managed to open just before everything shut down is the 5.4-mile Falcon Flow trail in Moab, Utah. Falcon Flow is the first trail of three to be completed as part of the Raptor Route which extends the popular Whole Enchilada route. The idea is to keep riders off Sand Flats Road as much as possible, and to add even more singletrack to this epic descent.
Do you know of a mountain bike trail that opened in March? Please be sure to add the info here and let us know about it in the comments below!
I was able to ride this a couple weeks ago. It exceeded my expectations. The trail is well laid out and even though it is a downhill trending trail (like WE), it does have a couple of climbs that sneak up on you. Overall it’s a very fun trail that I’ll be riding again when Moab is back to normal.
Rode Falcon Flow for the first time last night, and it definitely delivers some of the best flow in Moab, hands-down. We rode up Sand Flats road to the trailhead to take the trail back down, but it is designated two-way travel and we encountered four other riders that were climbing up. Maybe next time! The views are outstanding and it’s such a fun and fast trail. Perfect after-work spin that we can’t wait to do again. The Moab Trail Mix crew and volunteers did an unbelievably great job with this one!
NO! its not the only trail to open. In fact we just opened 2 days ago a new 1 mile long trail in Spokane Washington at Beacon Hill that was built within the last 2 weeks! pretty awesome mtb specific trail. https://www.trailforks.com/trails/covid-quarantine-268314/
Sounds rad! If it opened 2 days ago technically that’s April, so it’ll go in this month’s roundup.
