A tight trail twisting through the short oaks.

Description

The newest addition to the Whole Enchilada - New Beginning 2014 ride so you can avoid the Kokopelli Trail road section. This trail is not all downhill but is well worth the detour. The trail twists and turns and has some short and mellow climbs. Most of the turns are perfect for railing at high speeds when the dirt is in good shape. Unlike most Moab area trails, there are not a lot of rocks to bounce or drop off of so consider this your warm up into UPS and LPS.

The trail starts from the pull out just north of where Hazard County finishes. There are a couple of old roads that cross the route, but most of it is well marked and easy to follow.

Excellent warm up trail for the Whole Enchilada ride. Excellent singletrack. Flowy and fun but keeps you on your toes. Hats off to the trail builders 7.6mi

First time on this trail. Way more fun than the Kokopelli dirt road alternative. 7.6mi

Great section of trail and alternative to the quick bomb down the kokopelli double track. I don't know why anyone would not want to ride this great twisty and mostly downhill section of single track instead of the fire road. Very welcome addition to the trail system. The other negative reviewers obviously have different opinions but I felt I had to disagree, "worst trail ever" ha, not even close. May 3, 2017


I really liked this single track as a pre-cursor to Porcupine. It was flowy and fun. The few cattle-guards on the trail don't take away from it's fun. Great warm-up from the road, not as a part of Guacamole. May 17, 2017


Worst trail ever is 100% true, unless you don't like fun. If you're generally opposed to fun, skip the koko fire road, and ride Jimmy Keen. Why you ask? Speed and air time are no fun. Pedaly, slow corners ARE fun, right? And a trail that feels uphill the entire way? That's fun too, right? No, no, no. If you like fun, skip this atrocious pile of poo. Jul 12, 2017
