...at least that's its reputation, and it's well-deserved. Incredible biking on petrified sand dunes. Sidehills with seemingly impossible traction and great uphills and downhills. The views are killer, too!

This trail is fun to ride if you are in good shape. It is very scenic but can be crowded at the start when all the families and kids try to do the trail. Pretty soon the families will realize that the steep descents and ascents are not for kids or inexperienced riders so they tend to leave before the... More

The area itself is majestic. But, over the years it has been invaded by an onslaught of crazy mountain bikers that don't respect the environment. Having experienced it back in the 1980's compared to now, I have no desire to return.

This incredible bike trail in Moab is NOT for the faint of heart. I had two major spills and and am lucky that I came away with only road-rash, bruises and sore muscles. The scenery is breath-taking! What a day we had. Take twice the water that you think you'll need and a bit of food to eat. It may... More

It's one of those "have to try" but once you do head out to some of the better trails. Porcupine Rim, Amasa Back (with Capt. Ahab and High Masa spurs), etc

Slick Rock is amazing! Motorized dirt bikes are a blast here, as the ups and downs of the marked trail provide challenging terrain. Make sure to follow the marked path.

The most awesome trail ever. Solid rock about 98% of the trail. Just wish that I had prepared my body for it. I am a regular Mountain Biker but coming off a cold winter made me fat and sluggish. So next time may do this trail a little later or prepare during the winter for it. The oldest worn out... More

We were passing through back from Yellowstone and wanted a quick ride that wouldn't take all day. The Slickrock practice loop was perfect for my 10 year old son with a 24" kid's mountain bike. He was excited to ride a famous trail. I would recommend this trail for intermediate to pro riders and not beginners. We went in the... More

We drove up to Sand Flats Rec area on our 2-day trip to Moab. It was a cold, clear day and the scenery of the snow-covered red rock was stunning. We have biked this in the spring/fall where we have endured the intense heat. To see it at this time of year was another experience entirely. Very quiet, desolate and... More

Unless you are a skilled mountain biker with a decent bike, be prepared to walk your bike more than you expect. It started to snow, so we just did the practice loop. Shorter, not easier. Breathtaking. Make sure to stop now and then for photos, or better yet, if you are thinking of buying a helmet cam, buy it before... More
