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.

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.

A staple of a visit to Moab for us is to walk out on the Slickrock practice loop to watch the sunset. Gorgeous!

Absolutely try the practice loop first. It is short in comparison to the full trail, but a great representative of what the trail is like. We were in mountain bikes. I think this trail is more suited to motorcycles. If your looking for the trail of trails and bragging rights after completing, this is your ride.

Been Jeepinf for 30 years, Have a new JK with 35" rock crawler suspension..the works and a 3.5 lift The trail is in 2 parts, the first is moderate 5-4 with a lot of slick rock fins that are reasonably forgiving... then on the latter half are some 60 to 70 degree descents that are down right scary.

be prepared to share the path with motorcycles buzzing by in both directions, unusual for a mountain bike trail. There were other more scenic and enjoyable trails in the area.

This is one of the trails Moab is famous for. Lots and lots of Slick rock. Great out and back trail. Has practice area. Need to ensure lots of water as can be very exposed, very few trees. Need to buy either day pass or year pass to gain access. Also shared with jeeps.razors. Some great ascents and descents. NOt... More

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.
