Riding this trail on a bike is likely one of the coolest things you will every do in your lifetime. The Navajo sandstone you're riding on was laid down during the Jurassic Period, and it undulates and rolls and flows beneath your tires. Though the trail is designated for experienced bikers with high athleticism, you could just get off and walk up the trickier parts. The trail itself is marked by white spots on the stone; stick to them or you could get lost. Yellow dashes mean narrow paths or sudden drop edges. Come early in the morning, or better year, an hour before sunset. Don't come in the middle of the day when it is baking hot. The trail offers more than mere workouts though. The views of the landscape and of the Colorado River are breathtaking… if you're still capable of breathing, that is. Inexperienced bikers may take the 1.7 mile Practice Loop a couple of times before taking on the 10.5 main trails.

The trail is on Sand Flats Recreation Area. Read up on rules regarding preserving the natural heritage here, especially when it comes to protecting cryptobiotic soil.

  • Made sure to hit slick rock on my road trip from Massachusetts. Hands down best mountain biking I’ve ever done. Easy to follow loop for a first timer, very good safety information at the parking lot. Kid and family friendly environment

  • it was a really good ride. It took a little longer than I expected but not because the trail was harder than I expected, because there's no way you can do it without stopping and taking a thousand pictures the views of breathtaking the trails challenging and the memories are forever.

  • Great loop trail for riders looking for a lot of technical ups and downs. I've been riding bikes since I was a kid and consider myself an advanced rider. My wife has been riding for less than 3 years and she struggled in quite a few places.

  • It's Moab slick rock. What else do you say. Try not to hurt yourself. :)

  • Great trail to test your confidence on some steep climbs! Can get pretty busy on the weekends but that's to be expected with it's easy access. Always fun to make the trip down here.
