Slick rock wasn't slippery at all.

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... read more

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.

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.

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.
