Dominic on the slickrock tabletop Hidden Canyon North Trail

The Hidden Canyon North trail is found on the Blue Hills Road, 18 miles north of Moab.  After a half mile of dirt road, you encounter broad slickrock playgrounds.   This is lesser-known, and less ridden, trail. But although short, it's a good place to cruise around and waste time while you're in the area!  It's fun even for beginning riders.

End of the trail.  The view into hidden canyon is, well, a jaw-dropper.  On the way back, we pop over a ridge onto another rolling slickrock playground hundreds of yards wide and a mile long.  The whole loop is around 7.5 miles, low-intermediate technical difficulty and moderate-to-novice aerobic requirement.
