If you are in Moab in the winter, this is one of the first trails to become clear of any snowfall. The snow will remain in the sheltered areas but the sandstone clears quickly. If you can't find a dry area to ride try here. A week pass is only $10. The nice thing about this trail is you can... More

I have dirt biked and peddled this trail many times, it is one of my favorites to ride on a two wheeler. Get ready if you are not in shape it will beat you down. I ride the practice loop in spring just to break my body back in to shape.

The bike trails are well marked, covering various abilities. Other than using your bike, rent a specially built and tune one, it makes a huge difference.

We are beginners, so we stuck with the practice loop at Slickrock. We had a great time, and I would highly recommend at least stopping by and taking in the location.

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
