Bartlett/Jedi Slickrock Riding Area

Bartlett/Jedi Slickrock is a free-ride area open to mountain bikes (non-motorized). It's located on the north side of Bartlett Wash. This riding area is mostly smooth Entrada Sandstone. There are no marked trails in this area. Riders work their way up the slickrock ledges and bowls to reach the upper end of the slickrock where there are beautiful views and smooth bowls. Jedi Slickrock is the same smooth Entrada Sandstone but on the south side of the wash. Parking for both riding areas is in the designated parking area on the south side of the camping area. Ride the dirt road for less than a ¼ mile to either area. 

Riding Season: March-November (weather permitting)

Fees: None

Directions: To access the trailhead take Hwy 191 north of the Colorado River Bridge 14.5 miles. Turn west onto the Blue Hills Road, approximately 1 mile south of the airport (follow the signs to Bartlett). Go 2.4 miles and turn left. Go 0.8 miles and stay left. After 0.8 mile go right at the Bartlett Wash turnoff. Follow the Bartlett Wash road for 0.9 miles to the parking area on the left (in front of the camping area). Ride your bike from there up the wet wash for approximately ¼ mile to either riding area.
