This is as good as it gets. You'll hear a variety of languages as Slickrock draws riders from all over the world, it is a riding experience unlike anywhere else. You can sprint through the 3 mile practice loop, or make a day of the challenging 18 mile loop, which will test even the best of the best. Also fun... More

Really fun trail! Great change of pace if you're used to riding dirt. Unfortunately, the trail is packed with people creating the occasional bottleneck at obsacles. Lots of motorcycles and off road vehicles operating on, or near the trail definitely detract from the mtb experience too. Still, it is a must do if you're in the area. Plenty of camping... More

A ride unlike anything I've ever been on. It is amazing what your bike will stick to if you've got the legs for it. This ride is more strenuous that we thought it would be, but it isn't scary and you certainly can push your bike up the hard parts. Take lots of fluids!

10 miles up and down huge mountainous rocks. In the desert. You can ride much of it but not all. You will have to push your bike up 60 degree slopes at many points. Very taxing. not for beginners or those who consider mountain biking as something you do mostly on flat or rolling terrain. this is neither. Take plenty... More

I was on the fence about this, although it was a "bucket list item". I'm sure glad that I did!! This place was awesome!! Its uniqueness is one thing that makes it so fun! The traction is endless, which is perfect because if your legs can, the climbs are gnarly fun challenges. I should have ride this again, this place... More

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"
