Watching people ride Slickrock on a screen in 2D is much different than riding it in 3D! I took my boys (9 & 12) to ride the practice loop. It kicked my hiney and wasn’t easy for the boys but we had fun. They rode...More

If you do the full hike I would rate it difficult. It is just under 11 miles and includes a lot of steep climbs and descents. Take plenty of food and water. We did it with a high of 40F and it kicked my wives...More

To maximize enjoyment I recommend riding the new Navajo rocks area trails off of road 313 for an intermediate slick rock experience (e.g. Rambin - Rocky Tops loop clockwise) before tackling this more challenging classic if some of your group hasn't experienced slick rock riding...More

This trail is tough and I wouldn't go when wet. You can bike or walk the trail, I did both as it was to hard for me to climb the rocks while biking. Pushing the bike uphill was a challange as well. Allow spare time,...More

Did this iconic mountain bike ride late in the morning in November, not too hot or crowded. Saw some e-bikes on this ride for the first time ever.

Slickrock is demanding and rewarding. You should bike it at sunset to enjoy the scenery. Bring tools and lots of water + a camera !

pretty much any decent tire hooked up well riding this area when in the conditions we saw it in. I would imagine water would make it interesting, but none during the week we visited. It's a nice loop with real good vistas, you can see...More

We hiked instead of biked. There is a practice trail for the bikers, but it is easy to hike it and stay out of the way of the bikers. You do not have to stick to the trail, as long as you can easily trace...More

You can do it but you may want to save your energy for the trail. It is about 3 miles from downtown with some pretty good ascents.
