Slickrock Bike Trail 50th Celebration

A celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Slickrock Bike Trail will take place Saturday morning, Sept. 14 at the Sand Flats Recreation Area on Sand Flats Road east of Moab. 


The celebration will kick off at 7:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast followed by a "Rake & Ride" trail service project. Dick Wilson, the founder of the Slickrock Bike Trail, is expected to attend. 


On Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m., the celebration continues at historic Star Hall, 159 E. Center Street, with the premiere screening of a new documentary film, "50 Years of Slickrock." A silent auction will be held after the film which will benefit Grand County Motorized & Non-Motorized Trails. Appetizers and birthday cake will be served at the adjacent Sun Court, and attendees are invited to share their stories about the Slickrock Trail.
