This trail is definitely a 4 out of 4 on the difficulty scale. We rode the practice loop which offered great scenic views and a cardio workout. The area is nice, sopped every so often for photos. $5 per vehicle to enter the park.

It's a beautiful area but most cyclists have to walk a portion of the trail, even the one called Practice Loop. It's one of the more famous trails but we only stayed about 90 minutes until we moved on. The rock is like sandpaper and quite the opposite of slick. If you fall on it, you will get scraped up.

Well, it's Moab and if you're into MTB then there's really not much more to say than go ride Slickrock! This trail was the reason for our family heading to Moab in the first place. It is by no means an introductory MTB trail so if you are "beginerish", you might not want to look for another trail. If you... More

First time back to Slickrock after 20++ years. Ended up riding Slickrock twice, once to reacquaint myself with the terrain and trail, and the second time to rip it. Yes, it is very steep at times going up and down, but what a challenge. If you have the legs, and lungs, to keep your bike moving, you can make it... More

My husband and I came to Moab for our honeymoon and looked forward to riding this trail. It is significantly different from where we usually ride, so there is definitely a learning curve. I highly suggest the practice loop for those who are not used to slickrock. I ended up with a few battle scars from our ride, but it... More

MUCH harder than expected but all in all, a great day. I was very thankful they had mileage markers which helped out my mental state.

Everyone should bike Slickrock at some point in their lives; but be aware that it is an extremely grueling bike ride, especially if you ever attempt it during the day in the Moab heat! There is a reason that it is so well renowned though and I highly recommend it!

Created in 1969 for motorcyclists this ride has been largely taken over by bicycles. Go early to beat the heat or stay late and watch the shadows grow late in the day. This is not a long ride so can easily be fit in before/after many other rides in the area. The Sand Flats camping area is convenient and well... More

My husband and a friend biked this trail. He couldn't stop talking about it...said it was a great time. The guide gave him valuable information & he was greatful for it. Quite possibly his favorite excursion of the trip and that's saying a lot!

Didn't ride it, but would have if the wind had not kicked up. It is for very strong, skilled riders only. However, it was a lot of fun just walking the Practice Loop in the morning. Fascinating. $5/day well spent. It is also lovely in the evening. Running it would also be fun.
