       In my mind this trail is the main reason to ride all the way through to Porc Rim. So good! Slab sections are fun and gnar.

       This where The Whole Enchilada starts to get fun! Amazing views, cool red rock slabs, some techy bits, and a lot of speed. Read more about The Whole Enchilada and UPS here! twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/the-whole-enchilada-what-you-need-to-know
