Trail Description
About this trail
Review: Please note, this is NOT the old sandy jeep road that shares the same name. This trail does start out on a fire road, but turns off onto singletrack and eventually ends up on a slickrock shelf that goes around and between two buttes. You can play around as long as you want on the slickrock, and then head back out, stopping to hike the short footpath near the end whee you can see dinosaur bones in the rocks. (follow the signs) This is a short, but fun and scenic trail and is a good one to do if you are new to Moab.

Review: Fun, fun slickrock riding. The entrance trail through Mill Canyon sucks, though. This would be better done on a fat bike because of all the sand. Instead I would recommend going in via the east leg, playing around on the slickrock then come out the same way.

Review: The slickrock and the views on this trail are pretty fantastic! Overall this trail is pretty easy, but it's a great introduction to Moab. Think of this as Moab lite... if you can't handle this, I wouldn't suggest riding much else in Moab. Head back to Fruita and ride 18 Road.
