Porcupine Rim bike trail is one of the must ride biking trails of Moab, Utah. Long pedal up form town but best when shuttled to the top. On the bike map it is often combined as the Whole Enchilada with Porcupine Rim, Kokopelli, Hazard County and Burro Pass.
The main bike trail is about 18KM long with a gentle -5% grade. The trail can ridden in an hour non stop, but most people take multiple hours to session the various steps and drops and take photos of the World famous views of Castle Valley.

 Even though parts of the porcupine rim are double track, I found it very fun to rip down at high speed on a beefier full suspension bike. Then the singletrack portion along the canyon edge is super fun, with some nice optional drops and exposure. Nice thing about the trail is riders of all levels can go, advanced riders will just go faster to make it more technical.

 Porcupine Rim is a great trail. It is a very fast, kick-ass, rockin' downhill trail that will rattle your teeth. If you are looking for a lot of uphill portions, this trail is not for you. I started at the LPS and had essentially no climbs. There are super fun technical spots and killer views. Have fun and shred hard!
