Devil’s Slide is one of the faster rides in the Moonraker network. It is a one-way only trail. Starting at a radio tower, Devil’s Slide starts with a quick pedal enabling you to build your speed. Then test yourself by seeing how little speed you have to scrub while descending around the bend as the trail gets faster. Amazing cornering.

Devil’s Slide is often reached by first riding Arrowhead or Cedar Snag which will line you up nicely to continue onto Devil’s Slide. From the end of Devil’s Slide you might as well continue south (right) onto Klahowya which will take you to the Canyon Creek lower lookout for a view the canyon.

Access Info

Trail can be accessed at the four way junction with Arrowhead, Bear Claw and Devil's Slide, just off the Tower Road.

      Trail status will be updated as they are assessed by the trail crew. Riding the trails before they are ready can result in long term damage. Thanks!
