Insanely challenging and extremely fun!

We loved it. We went 4 wheeling on it in our Jeep Rubicon. It is harder than hells revenge and fins n things. Your vehicle should be lifted, bigger than stock tires and well built. Lockers are definitely a plus. Four wheel vehicles can only go half way. The trail goes down to single track. We encountered a lot of mountain bikes on the trail.

Excellent trail. Brutal uphills starting out, but totally worth it for ~15 miles of downhill awesome riding. Would highly recommend 29er FS for this trail. Worth it to rent an awesome bike and enjoy the ride.

One of the best if not the best trail I have ever road. This trial combines slick rock type sections with staircase rhythms and sand swept corners all making for a great ride. This trail can be road in many ways but my favorite and recommend is doing just the down hill. Would highly recommend

What can I say about Porcupine Rim that hasn't already been said. Over the summer my friend and I took a cross country road trip / mountain biking trip......We've had Moad on our brains for about a about year and finally we got the chance to make this trip happen. We were not dissapointed with Moab or PR. Some of the most epic rides of the summer happened in Moab! If you visit Moab you have to hit this trail up! Stunning views of the canons, awesome down hill runs....some parts of the trail will have you cruising downhill on a narrow legde with a few hundred feet below you...awesome...awesome...awesome riding!

To start out this trail is very physically demanding. And can leave you exhausted for days. This trail is for experienced riders only!
Suggestions:
Bring lots of water and snacks. Get used to the 105 degree weather and make sure you are willing to let your 4000$ bike get banged up pretty bad. Also expect small drops . Sand and a nice cliff to the side of the single track.
Overall:
Make sure you and your bike are tip top shApe before you ride
