The Whole Enchilada, Top to Bottom 5

Arguably one of the top mountain bike trails on the planet. Linking up several Moab favourites, this trail spans almost 30 miles and has a cumulative descent of over 8,000 feet.

The beauty of this ride is not just the sheer scale of it - but its diversity. Starting in high alpine forest at Burro Pass, the ride transitions to aspens, high desert and finishes off plummeting down to the Colorado River on exposed singletrack.

The type of riding if vastly diverse as well: from slow, steep and technical rocky singletrack to wide open high speed sections and everything in between.

My first time doing this ride could only be described as 'complete sensory overload'

Riders: Chad G, Steve Cooke, Tom Bishop, Adam Simpson and myself. More info on the ride here: connect.garmin.com/activity/120339128 Music: The Dandy Warhols - The Creep Out

    Nicely done... that is without a doubt one of my favorite trails. There is a little piece of my soul hiding up on that singletrack in the aspens.

    No notch on lps and no steps on Porcupine single track? Missing the best part. Also the most painful part if you screw it up.
