Slickrock is a must-do for any mountain biker given the uniqueness of the trail. It's sandpaper surface allows riders to negotiate sections otherwise not possible. The scenery is stupendous but keep your eye on the white hash marks that guide you through the terrain. The practice loop is good for beginners or someone who simply wants a flavor of Slickrock...

We hiked a lot of this trail and it was still amazing to experience. To climb one of the high points and see how far it goes will blow your mind.

This is a classic ride and unlike anything you have every ridden before. The trail is steep ups and downs so come prepared.

Even if you're not a big mountain biker go rent a bike and ride this route!! It's like no other ride you'll ever do in your lifetime. I almost made the mistake of riding it in road bike cleats/pedals which would be dangerous because there are some very steep climbs. If you don't make it up than when you put... More

Last year I visited Moab and stayed at the Sand Flats campground. No one in our group rode slick rock and this year I was determined to try it. It was not for me...my mistake. I started to ride it at 4:15 and was scheduled to do a big ride the next morning to the Burrow Pass area. This was... More

This is my all time fav. I feel sad when I leave. If you enjoy xc biking this is your motherland. It really is for a seasoned biker, intermediates will have difficulty on it. Must like steeps and be a bit fearless for the slickrock. If this is you...you will be addicted!!! I have rode the slickrock 4 times and... More

Slickrock trail is an experience of a lifetime. There are some quite harrowing parts of the trail, and inexperienced riders should think twice about bombing around the slickrock near sharp drop-offs without some guidance or instruction prior to departing. There are some very difficult and strenuous parts, while other areas are mild and fun to play around on. Bring tons... More

A definite must do if you're down for the mtn biking. Sure there's lots of other trails you're going to want to hit that offer similar slick rock and single track, etc, but Slickrock Trl can't be missed. All ages can handle it w/ a little caution for younger & new riders. Ya, it can be crowded at times but... More

We took out dirtbikes and got lots of sneers from the mountain bikers. I guess they failed to read the sign that explained the trial was originally made by dirt bike guys... Any who the trial is really cool with some awesome views. The whole park is really neat.
