Moab’s Portal Trail is heavy on exposure, dust, and rocks, and light on forgiveness if you make a mistake. Gee Atherton is up for it.
The Portal Trail is infamous, and for good reason. The rocky, dusty singletrack comes with an unforgiving wall on one side and a sheer cliff on the other.
The best part about riding the Moab classic along with pro mountain biker Atherton? He seems to be just as spooked by it as you or I would be.
Prepare to clench all your clenchable bits.
