This trail is within Sand Flats Recreation Area and does require an entrance fee.
Need to Know
• Parking is 800 ft from the start at the Porcupine Rim
• This is a bi-directional trail and uphill riders have right-away.
• Much of the dirt around Falcon Flow is made of Biological Soil Crust which is very delicate. Be careful when dismounting or stopping to stay on the trail or carefully step onto rocks to protect this sensitive ecosystem.
Shuttle service provided by Hazard County Shuttle, 435-210-8082 (www.hazardcountyshuttle.com). Park in the Falcon Flow Finish Parking Lot to eliminate the pedal back to town.
In a landscape where riders often have to work to find the flow of a trail, Falcon Flow is there to help with smooth berms and turns on the top-half. The bottom-half keeps true to the area's flavor of trail, albeit with a continued nod to speed and flow.
Most riders make a loop out of this trail by climbing 2.8 miles East up Sand Flats Road
to the top of the trail and then return west to the parking area at the bottom. You could also ride it as an out-and-back or as an alternate option off of LPS
. Simply turn left on Porcupine Rim
(instead of right) and head down for 2.5 miles to the Porcupine Rim
trailhead. Follow signs to Falcon Flow from there. The great news is it's a fun ride no matter how you decide to approach it!
From the top, a very brief and mild ascent ushers riders to nearly two-miles of fast and flowy descending (the kind of flow you'd find in other states, but just drawn across a beautiful desert landscape here). Like any good Moab trail there are some fun optional features along the way and some cool mandatory ones too. Where riders encounter climbs they are generally short and not overly punchy so this is one of the less fatiguing options around. This new-school trail is a home run for the visitors and locals alike!
