Slick Rock Mountain Biking

Intermediate to Difficult

Slickrock is frequently referred to as one of America's best bike rides: it is one of the coolest and most unique sensations you can have while riding your bike.

The trip is mostly on really slippery, smooth slickrock, and it's amazing how much your tires can retain. Everything, including inclines that appear ludicrous at first appearance, is rideable if you have the nerve, muscle, and balance to do it. Oh, and the views are among of Moab's best.

The granite is everything from slick when riding a mountain bike. The beautifully grained sandstone gives rubber tires incredible traction and lets you to climb seemingly impossible steep stretches of route. If you're on the rock after a rare rainfall, though, you'll quickly discover how slick the Slickrock Trail can get.
