Hike where they bike on what has been called the best biking trail in America. 

 

Situated at the edge of Moab, this is a panoramic hike entirely over undulating slickrock. Just follow the white line that guides the crazy mountain bikers, or freestyle it. The full trail is 12 miles but you can stop and loop back whenever you want. Not far from the trailhead are good views over the adjacent Grandstaff Canyon and its impressive natural bridge. 

To get there follow the signs from downtown Moab to the Sand Flats Recreation Area. A small fee is payable at the trailhead.
