Hands down one of my favorite places to spend the day. I spent the day hiking here with a bunch of hand cyclists biking the practice route. The rock formations and scenery are worth the walk or bike in this area. The trail is technical so go with caution - it will not fail to please.

Not for the novice rider and def not for kids. Be sure to bring a travel first aid kit just in case b/c its a bit of a hike to the ranger station.

Riding on the slickrock trail is nothing like any other mountain biking. The steep ascents and descents, the views and the 4X4s make this trail quite different than your mountain bike trails back home.

We biked this trail for our first experience in mountain biking. And - now I am addicted!!!! Was a tad bit challenging for first timers but doable. The scenery was stunning. Having good bikes and a good guide also helped.

Saved this for the last morning of the week long trip, got there early to be on trail by 8AM. Went with my 11 year old son and 13 year old nephew both accomplished cyclists. We rode the route counterclockwise for no there reason as that's the way we turned upon reaching the intersection. As we were pretty much alone... More

Whatever mountain biker comes to ride when they head to Moab. Not really all that amazing, however quite unique. You really never ride on dirt, just slickrock.

Just one of the highlights from our trip,. Fabulous sites and lots of fun but definitely not for beginners (like us!). Haha. Place was swarming with people: fun to watch the experienced riders.

This is a must ride for intermediate+ riders. Super sticky slickrock is a blast to ride. Lots of steep ups and downs.

Lots of activity here on slickrock, especially camping & 4-wheel. ATV, UTV, motorcycle, Mtn. Biking opportunities. Trail is rated difficult and uphill climbs on Mtn.Bike will take some effort. Great views of town and it appears everyone heads to Milt's afterwards.
