Area Attractions: The Slickrock Trail possesses a terrific combination of challenging riding and scenery. The Practice Loop offers an introduction to riding on slickrock. However, the Practice Loop is every bit as difficult as the trail itself -- only shorter. Route Description: The trail is marked by white dashes painted on the slickrock. Intersections, points of interest and caution zones are indicated with yellow paint. The Slickrock Trail was originally designed for motorcycle use. The trail is open to both dirt bikes and mountain bikes. The Slickrock Trail is the most difficult trail described here. It is both technically demanding and strenuous. Novice riders should test their riding skill and stamina on the Practice Loop prior to attempting the main route. Be certain that your brakes are in good working condition.
