Utah is a mecca for mountain bike enthusiasts who view
the wealth of backcountry roads and slickrock as an irresistible
opportunity for scenic year-round exploration.
BLM's Moab Slickrock Bike Trail is well-known as one of
the nation's superior mountain bike trails, combining
a challenging loop ride with incredible scenery. Motorcyclists
originated this trail in 1969, but conquering the 10-mile
roller-coaster route marked only by dashed of paint on
raw rock has become a rite of passage for mountain bikers.
A two-mile practice loop near the parking area introduces
most of the terrain challenges found on the actual trail.
a multi-day ride, the Kokopelli Trail connects Moab with
Grand Junction, Colorado for a total of one hundred and
forty adventurous miles.
a cool, green departure from desert riding, try the Blue
Mountain Loop in the Abajo Mountains, starting west of
Monticello on a paved road and winding through pine and
on the dirt and gravel road through Montezuma Canyon,
accessed from US Hwy 191 south of Monticello, pedal past
peach orchards, sandstone cliffs, and ancient pueblo ruins.
