The Porcupine Rim Trail starts 7 miles from the Entrance

Station at the east end of the recreation area. The first 11.2

miles of the trail are open to bikes and motorized vehicles.

After this point the trail departs from the dirt road and becomes

a single track suitable only for mountain biking and hiking. The

trail is rated a 4 (difficult), on a scale of 1 to 4. It includes a

3-mile, 900-foot ascent from the trailhead to Porcupine Rim

and then an 11-mile, 2,800-foot descent to the Colorado

River. One of the great attractions of the trail is the stunning

view it offers of Castle Valley from the top of the Rim.

Ridden from trailhead, Porcupine Rim Trail is 14.4 miles

to Highway 128 or 20.4 miles to Moab. If ridden as a loop,

the entire ride is 30.8 miles with an elevation gain of 3,000

feet. ( *2/3 of the elevation gain occurs during the first 10 miles !*)

I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

He set my feet upon a rock
And made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and fear

Didn't have any takers for this ride.

However, I did meet up a few days later with Brian & Kerry for a ride on the world famous Slickrock trail.Brian was kind enough to put together a short video & post it on youtube.You can't tell from the video but it was sooooooooo windy that day ,it nearly blew us over a few times.
