If you love biking on the slickrock, this is a must do. Even around moab, there is nothing that gives the amount of slickrock riding as you will find here.

As regulars on single-track mountain bike trails in the east coast woods, riding on these trails was amazing. The trail comprised angled open loose rock, solid "slickrock trails", and various other terrain, all with wonderful views.
