Great place to ride!! Fun, fun, fun, but not for the beginner. Take your time and enjoy the sights or concentrate on the trail and haul.

This is a great trail. But you need to be experienced to ride it. Very steep climbs. The view is amazing. Be prepared to use all your low gears...

Great mountain bike ride, the trail is impossible to lose. Expect plenty of elevation ups & downs with a moderate technical difficulty factor.

95% slickrock, super fun for mountain biking, only downside was the motos and dune buggys. Go early or mid-week to avoid the crowds.

We have been to Moab 4 or 5 times and hadn't ridden Slickrock... we had been getting mixed reviews from other riders. We finally did it and are we ever glad we did.It is a must ride when in Moab. While it is old school mtn biking -it is a must. The slick rock is just so much fun to... More

Super fun roller coastery trail with gorgeous views throughout (there are even peaks of the arches at certain points). I'm an intermediate level rider, and enjoyed every moment of it, but would note it's more strenuous then you would expect (tons of decents and climbs), as well as would be intimidating if I were less experienced with descents. Took me... More

While the scenery is very cool and the experience of riding on slickrock was amazing, this trail is pretty much the same thing for about 11 miles. Don't even attempt to finish this trail without some significant fitness abilities, this is constant climbing and decending.
