    What's right with Slickrock trail

    ~The 200 yard ride from your tent to the trailhead.

    ~Climbing almost 2000 vertical feet, 30 ft. at a time.

    ~People watching in the parking lot.

    ~Crossing the Jeep trail and seeing the startled look on the drivers face when he realizes you are climbing better than his $30,000 4x4 is.

    ~When the first time rider learns they can ride up something that steep.

    ~A Cliff Bar at Shrimp Rock.

    ~Trail maintenance means getting out the white spraypaint.

    And the best thing: It's a 6 minute,downhill ride to a cold pitcher of Cisco Bend Stout at Eddie McStiff's.

    Lots

    The scenery of course, tons of off trail excursions without pi$$ing off the environazzis; and it's easy to follow.

    Singletrack route

    Aaahhhhhh...... I had thought you were referring to the fast singletrack with the "big air". You know, just head due West from slickrock over the 1500` drop.

    I would usually never complement the low percentage Utah beer, but after a typical Moab ride, pounding 2x the usual amount of beer at a place like Mcstiff's is _just_ right.
