Bartlett Wash

Average Rating:    (4.54 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 39

This trail could possibly be the best place I rode in Moab. I guess its not slickrock, like the slickrock found at SLICKROCK TRAIL, but its stone. This red tinted rock formation is huge...there is a great bike climb at the start. there is no white line to follow and no one was there...there were two pretty mad half pipes and two sides that just flowed...i mean it was just like a wavy section on the one side that made it seem like you were surfing...i absolutely loved this ride...it's all good

Summary:
I prefer Slickrock to Barlett Wash. At first it seems cool to ride wherever you want, but it gets a bit boring after awhile. Jumping the 1.0-1.5 foot ledges are fun for awhile, but when they are not part of an actual trail, it gets boring. If I was skilled enough to drop into the toilet bowl or do the big drops, I am sure I'd enjoyed it better. Views are spectacular! Definitely worth doing at least once for the experience.

Summary:
One of the best trails moab has to offer. about 20 miles away from moab on some rough back roads, it is there in all its glory. having ridden slick rock for a few years it seems more like an old friend than a new thrill. relatively few people know about and the few rider i met were riding it for their first time as well. i can promise that if you have ridden the slick rock trail and would like something different, try this trail!

Recommended Route:
First off- Dont use the GPS it threw me on the other side of the wash. take I-70 about 17 miles out then take blue hills for another 2 miles take the only left, then continue on until you start seeing bartlett markers.

Second- when you find the lot next to camp ground near the trees and wash, Park here. Then on Bike continue on road until you see a trail on your right, it will be hidden by trees but its there.

Summary:
Great ride for a 1st timer to Moab. If your thinking about riding Slick Rock and are not sure, this is a good taste of what to expect. Ive been going to Moab for the last 5 years. This has always been my 1st ride of the trip. Mostly because I drive from SO. CAL. during the night and arrive in Moab about noon, then hit this trail. It is a good warm up to what the rest of the trip has in store, and after driveing all night I'm usually too tired & cross eyed to ride anything else. This trail can be as easy or difficult as you make it. This is why I only rated it 3 chili's

Recommended Route:
Follow the Rider Mel's Book. That book is the BIBLE for Moab.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Porcupine Rim, Behind the Rocks (24 hour race course)

Summary:
Big slickrock area that you can just explore. If you go when it is hot, it seemed to me that the slickrock just amplified the heat so that is a downside, but other than that it is a ton of fun. The difficulty is as hard or as easy as you want to make it.

Recommended Route:
Just find the place and explore.

Summary:
Remember riding a skate park on your bmx for the first time? Never ridden a bmx bike at a skate park? - do this ride. Just a wide open slickrock playground. If you can make it up the rock ramp at the trailhead, make sure you buddies see you do it or they won't believe you. Great intro to slickrock, I rode this the day before I rode the Slickrock Trail and felt totally comfortable on the world famous trail. A must ride if you're in Moab for a couple of days. The ratings can be a little misleading, because this ride can be as easy or as hard as you make it. I gave it an easy aerobic and difficult technical score, but someone else may give it the opposite depending on the lines you pick.

Recommended Route:
Like the review below says, buy Rider Mel's guide to Moab, his directions got me there with no problem

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Slickrock
