Another NorCal Rovers favorite, Slick Rock is a short trail with challenging sections and optional lines suitable to only the best built rigs and buggies. Full armor and at least 1 locker are recommended as are 32”+ tires and suitable driveline and suspension upgrades. Passable by moderately built trucks, even the best prepared vehicles will find lines to challenge themselves on this local favorite!
This short route is a rare combination of difficult obstacles and great scenery. Passes through popular Union/Utica recreation area. Lots of hiking, biking, and water activities at each end of route. Street legal vehicles only”. From the older book “Much of this trail traverses large rock slabs, giving you a little taste of Moab and the Rubicon. Silver Creek flows over rocks beside the trail with wonderful clear pools in which to relax and play. Unique places to camp along the way. The south end of trail runs alng beautiful Utica Reservoir, a scenic place to camp, mountain bike, and flatwater kayak.
