Every serious Mountain Biker from around the world, knows, or has heard about the famous and notorious Slickrock Trail in Moab. It was this trail that put Moab on the map, and turned Moab into a mountain biking mecca that brings 1000's of mountain bikers from around the globe to Moab. The Slickrock Trail is VERY well marked with painted white lines like the middle of a highway, and there are yellow caution markers and black diamonds to warn you of deadly sections ahead. Be sure to watch for these warnings after you hit the main loop at mile 2.5. Hills on the trail are short, but grueling and very steep. If you let you momentum carry you it could get you into trouble on twisty sections with off-camber turns, but mostly it is momentum that will allow you to ride up the really steep stuff. Traction is fantastic, except when wet or icy. Watch out for winter! Trail Surface: slickrock, obviously, with a painted white line guiding you into the most outrageous situations. At times it is like riding on the outside edge of a 300-foot high basketball.

Like this trail for technical obstacles.

Don't like how crowded it is when I have been there.
I ride dirt bike ( non pedal ). Gets frustrating when all these pedal bikes are on a motorcycle trail

This trail is very fun and and pretty easy compared to porcupine rim. It's fun to see what you can clime jump or ride its like a giant skate park but a trail and you hardly see anyone.
Expect to wreck a couple of timed but it war worth the ride!

Very good trail to start off on. Most any rider can do it but you can make it as hard as you want. It's fast with lots of ups and downs, best for a cross country rider. The slick rock is a unique experience and you won't believe some of the hills you can climb because of the amazing traction. I spent the entire day there, playing on the slick rock and taking pictures with the beautiful scenery.
