First mountain bike ride at Moab!

Unbelievable ride with breathtaking scenery! Not to steep or too technical but lots of fun! Went with Rim tours; ask for Melissa!

It's not exactly what I expected, but still a landmark trail for any mountain biker worth their salt to ride. The trail is ridable by anyone who has ridden a MTB before with nothing too extreme.

I had heard a lot about this trail but was not totally impressed with it. I have been to this trail twice and for me it just didn't do it. It's kind of like I heard from another mountain biker while we were there " Slick Rock gets people to Moab but Porcupine Rim keeps them coming back"

We came to do some Mtn Biking in Moab and had Slickrock as a must do trail. Telling the guy at the visitors center in town we were doing Slickrock and would like a suggestion for 1 other must do ride while in town he commented, "well, you're doing by far the toughest ride in Moab, so everything else will...

I was surprised at how well the rocks hold a Kawasaki UTV. Hells revenge and other parts of Slick Rock are hairy, but the thrill is worth it! Probably better to be driving then riding as you are more in control. Not for the faint of heart, as you literally have inches (ok, maybe a foot or two) , otherwise... More

My husband and I spent some time here in the summer of 2012....and I have the scarred knees to prove it. While I don't for a minute think of myself as a daring mountain biker, I've got some skills. This place kicked my butt. Of course it was mid July and closing in on triple digits the day we were... More

Rode the World Famous Slickrock Bike Trail with my son, I'd give it a 10 for difficulty, a 10 for Scenery and a .5 for fun. Extremely steep ups and downs with not much opportunity to get up any momentum before climbing. We are experienced Mt. Bikers and I was disappointed, not much flow or consistency to the trail. Bring... More

A friend of mine recommended Slick Rock for mountain biking when I passed through Moab. I didn't do much research, figured I was good to go. This was possibly a mistake; though I had the time of my life, I was so excited when I returned to the parking lot in one piece. Having gone back to watch some videos... More

Take the short practice loop if you are unsure of your skill level, otherwise the full loop is a blast. I wish I had started a couple hours earlier, it gets pretty warm out on the rocks.

Both the heat and terrain can be challenging. However, it is an experience like no other. Make sure you and you gear are ready for it. It is a strenuous eleven miles.
