If you ride mountain bikes, you've heard of this trail - its a bucket list item for most riders. The rolling sandstone landscape is awe inspiring. The trail is rated intermediate on various sites, but I would definitely call this... More

Despite extreme temperatures (100+ degree F) while we were in Moab, we ventured out onto the Slickrock trail. It is superbly marked & worth every minute that we risked heat exhaustion. Was expecting it to be more technical from the ratings provided. The traction was amazing!!!

Even thought the terrain is smooth rock, the trails can be steep and fat tires are definitely needed. For the brave, casual riders, there is a "try it out" trail that... More

If you aren't feeling up to the heat, at least do the practice loop. Make sure to over pack the water and snacks. Plan for some time to enjoy the views of the river and Moab terrain. Classic, never gets old ride.

A fun experience out on the red slickrock. Not really for a beginner, this trail will test your technical abilities and endurance. Start early because this trail will be busy and the day progresses.

The mountain bike experience in Moab was the best. So many trails for every level. Go and ride Amasa back and Magnificent 7.
