Located 18 miles north of Moab, this Entrada sandstone slickrock ride features incredible views and fun undulating waves of great rock. The "official" ride is 4 miles, but you can spend all day goofing off on large playgrounds of open rock. There's no marked trail -- you pick your way up sandstone ledges to reach one of the largest open slickrock areas you'll ever see. Season March through November.
