Slickrock Bike Trail - Review

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.

  • 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.

  • Unbelievable trail. Not recommended for those new to biking or uncomfortable with constant ups and downs. There is very little flowy sections on this. You are either going up or down. Traction is incredible and unlike anything I have ever experienced. Be sure to start and finish before 11am in the summer and bring at least 2L of water.

  • A must do. Be warned, my son and I road the full loop (counter clockwise) and it was hard. We probably had to walk our bikes for at least a quarter of the trail (my son and I ride three times a week so we're in decent shape and have some skills). Also it gets really hot in the Summer (June-Aug) so do it in the shoulder season (April/May or Sept/Oct) or super early in the morning during the hot months. During the hot months I'd start no later than 7 AM (earlier if possible). In credible view and a great workout.

  • It needs to be on every MTB rider's bucket list. You can climb stuff you wouldn't have thought possible and the views are amazing. But honestly, it was more grueling than fun, especially the first two miles just getting to the start of the main loop. 90% of it just has no flow - you climb hard and when it is time to drop in the other side it is steep with sharp turns so you get no big payoff.

  • 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.
