Slickrock Trail
The popular Slickrock Trail is located on a heavily eroded sandstone plateau between Moab Valley and the Colorado River in the Sand Flats Recreation Area.  The complete trip along the main trail from the trailhead out to the loop, around the loop, and back to the trailhead covers a distance of 10.5 miles, not counting any spur routes.  The trail constantly changes elevation as it crosses a series of Navajo sandstone domes and fins.  Because of the numerous steep ascents, many riders need 4 or 5 hours to complete the trail.   Several portions of the main trail are marked with yellow dashes where the trail follows narrow ledges or abrupt drop-offs.  Riders are cautioned to be especially careful at these locations and anywhere else the trail approaches a cliff, changes grade, or crosses rutted rock.
