|The Slickrock Trail, located near Moab, Utah (USA), is a popular mountain biking destination. This 13-mile (20.9 km) loop takes intrepid riders over a landscape of “petrified” sand dunes and the eroded remnants of ancient sea beds. The so-called “slickrock” sandstone is not slick at all, but has a surface much like sandpaper.||The name “slickrock” was given by early settlers of the area because their horses’ metal shoes had difficulty gaining traction on the rock’s sloping surfaces. Slickrock also becomes very slick when wet. (excerpts from Wikipedia)|
