The Moab Slickrock Trail was the first trail designated primarily for mountain bike use and is one of the most popular mountain bike trails in the world. It was established as a motorcycle trail in 1969, but by the mid 1980s, it was primarily used by mountain bikers. The trail is located on a sandstone plateau overlooking the Colorado River, Moab Valley, and Arches National Park. T
