Singletrack on the edge of Porcupine Rim with eye-popping views of Castle Valley.

Features -none-

This is primarily a downhill trail.

Description

UPS is the upper most singletrack on the Porcupine Rim. It connects the Kokopelli Trail with LPS singletrack.

UPS starts at a juntion with the Kokopelli route on the right shortly after a cattle guard; it's well signed.

UPS is the kind of trail where things get really good, really fast. After the short climb to the rim from the trail junction, you'll be overlooking Castle Valley. From here, the trail begins connecting short bits of wavy slickrock. The frequency of rock depends on how close you get to the rim. The closer you are, the more slickrock there is to enjoy.

After rolling along for a bit, you'll get to large slickrock play area. The trail is to the right, but there are multiple lines to get you down. A word of caution: Dont roll an edge blind. It could be a smooth ramp, or it could be a big drop. Scout, then huck.

The steep slick rock area will lead to Malloy Park and the Porcupine Rim Camping Area. The trail braids here a bit, but keep heading north along the rim and you'll get back on track. Just be careful for tents and sunbathers dotting the trail. Afterwards, a little more rolling trail and slickrock will connect you with LPS.

Fantastic trail with expertly crafted flow and tech featuring rock slabs, flow, a fair bit of good old-fashioned chunk, and stunning views. 2.2mi — 0h 34m
