The trail is easy aerobic and can be as technical as you like. The official trail is fairly short but there is plenty to explore. Follow the trial west and then cruise along the North edge here you'll find a huge expanse of slickrock to play on. Make your way out to the point and then head East back to the trail that leads to your car. You really can't go wrong out here there are plenty of ledges to drop, bowls to ride and views to soak in. Play around all you like before heading back to your car.

Review: Start to learn how to ride slickrock HERE! Just changing direction changes the difficulty. Camping nearby. One time at the trail head there were biting flies but easy to ride away.

Review: Bartlett Wash is a freeform slickrock playground. The local guide would have you ride up the slickrock and then complete a loop on dirt roads. We rode back down the slickrock and couldn't stop smiling the entire way. There's not really a trail, but you can't get lost. Just stay on the rock.

Review: A big slickrock mesa popping up out of the desert. Basically a great big playground, no trail to speak of, but tons of space to have fun. A little bit of everything to love about slickrock. Some great bowls to swoop in and out of, nice drops, and wide open ups and down. A great primer for slickrock riding if youve never been and don't want to dive into the commitment of some of the longer trails.

Review: A great ride to hit on the way into Moab from I-70. Blow in, screw around, get a grin, and hit the brewer(ies).

Review: nice place if you are a free rider, serious singletrackers are turned into tourist here.no epic trails here.kinda reminds of my bmx days as a kid,you can hang out and chat with everyone while you watch the next in line take there turn at the toilet bowl drop in or catch some air off a hanger drop.boy were those days cool,care free and time to burn.hahahaha.anyway,its a little hard to get to cause theres a long dirt road into the place and you will be much more comfortable getting in here with a truck or 4x4.theres probably more trail getting in here than there is to ride,so if you know where your going leave the car by the hiway and ride in.just make sure you know where your going,i've only been here once and i dont think i could find my way in by myself.theres alot of dirt road out here.

Review: i would not call this a trail. if you like single track look at another trail. this is a play ground. if you like doing drops, bowls and great scenery you will love it. lots of different level steps to go up and drop off. lots more to explore than slick rock.

Similar Trail: slick rock practice loop.

Review: PS- There are several 'walk-in' campsites near the trail head along the creek. Im not sure if this is brand new or not but the signs, parking and fence were just recently new.

Review: This place is a blast!!! I would recommend a free ride/all mountain bike. However, cross country will if that's all your have. If your into urban, trials or just like big drops, this is the place for you. The weather was 59 degrees, but the rocks heat up fast making it much warmer on the slick rock surface. Take this into account w/ the time of year you will be riding here. Also, if you have a car you may not make it all the way back to the entrance of the park. The roads are sandy & more than likely you will get stuck. Park & ride or catch a ride with truck that may be headed in.

Review: This is simply a great slickrock playground. It's as hard as you make it. Drops, steps, swoops, and more! Excellent scenery too!
