The Whole Enchilada  Burro Pass, Hazard, Kokopelli, Porcupine Singletrack, and Porcupine Rim
This ride is 26.5 miles long, with 7000 vertical feet of downhill. It's an unforgettable epic experience, but is only for very strong, skilled, and adventuresome riders. It peaks at 11,200 feet in the La Sal Mountains and drops to the Colorado River. Season: Mid July through September. You'll need a shuttle vehicle. The ride goes over Burro Pass, descends to Warner Lake, then catches Hazard County down to the La Sal Loop road where you take the Kokopelli to the Porcupine Singletrack. Joining Porcupine Rim at the overlook, you descend to the Colorado.
Getting there:
On Moab's Main Street and Center, head south on US-191. Drive 8.2 miles and turn left toward Ken's Lake - La Sal Loop Road. At the T intersection 1/2 mile later on the paved La Sal Loop Road to mile 20.6, then turn right on gravel Geyser Pass road. Drive 8 miles on Geyser Pass road (to mile 28.6). Here you come to a fork, with a small turnaround on the left just before the fork. This is Geyser Pass (N38 29.122 W109 13.940). Go left (you should see a "Burro Pass 1.2" sign as you curve around the fork), then keep right at the fork that immediately follows. 1.2 miles later (mile 29.8) turn left off the main road on an eroded doubletrack climbing steeply up the mountain, with a sign "Burro Pass TH" (N38 29.408 W109 12.906). Go 1/2 mile up the mountain (4-wheel drive strongly suggested here) and park where the DT disappears into some fir trees.
