If you like mountain biking, motocross, or 4-wheel drive off roading, this is the place to be. Do not let the name fool you, the rocks are actually sandstone, so it is like rocks made from sandpaper. We rented a UATV in town and hit...More

The ride that made Moab famous for biking. Certainly one-of-a-kind. Pick a less busy day for this ride. Take in the side trails for view points

If you love biking on the slickrock, this is a must do. Even around moab, there is nothing that gives the amount of slickrock riding as you will find here.

This is the classic slickrock trail, with amazingly grippy sandstone. there are some extremely steep sections where, while your tires may grip, your legs might not have the power to make it up the hill. Fantastic views. Make sure you take plenty of water and...More
