Riding slick rock was like nothing else. We'd been riding in Utah for about 9 days on a variety of different trails but nothing quite like Slick rock. I'm so pleased it was in the itinerary. Smooth, grippy (real grippy even off camber), steep, tough going especially in the heat and vistas like no other. We did the full loop... More

First, this area is fantastically beautiful, a combination of exposed red sandstone, desert scrub bushes, and sand and eye popping views, often topped by a flawless blue sky, so even if you can't ride a mountain bike well enough to conquer the trail, you can hike along beside it as well, as it is well marked the entire length.

You have been told that "you have to ride Slickrock if you go to Moab". While this is reasonable to very strong riders, I would add that beginners will have a better time walking part of it and watching some technique of the skilled riders. It may be out of your comfort zone, and with a bit of careful instruction,... More

The ride may be a bit much for beginners or even some intermediate riders but this is a trail every mountain biker needs to do at least once. The constant flowing rock trail is such an unique experience and the scenery is beautiful. The last time I did this trail was during sunrise to beat the heat and the crowds... More

For many years, as a mountain biker, I've heard of the Moab Slick Rock trail. On this trip it was a must. I'm not a young insane rider, but I just wanted to try it. Many in town warned me about it being a true black diamond and that people had died out there. Well I decided to at least... More

Great place to ride!! Fun, fun, fun, but not for the beginner. Take your time and enjoy the sights or concentrate on the trail and haul.

This is a great trail. But you need to be experienced to ride it. Very steep climbs. The view is amazing. Be prepared to use all your low gears...

Great mountain bike ride, the trail is impossible to lose. Expect plenty of elevation ups & downs with a moderate technical difficulty factor.

95% slickrock, super fun for mountain biking, only downside was the motos and dune buggys. Go early or mid-week to avoid the crowds.
