#1 Moab National Park, UT

Ride the trails though the majestic Moab Canyons. The desert beauty will draw you in and the intense trails will have you wanting more. The views alone are one of the top reasons Moab is the #1 U.S. mountain bike destination.


#2 Downieville Downhill, CA

If a huge downhill thrill is what you seek, then Downieville, California, has the trails for you. With an estimated 500 miles of trail riding for all levels of expertise, this location steals the #2 spot.


#3 Bangtail Divide – Bozeman, MT

The Bangtail Divide biking trail, located just outside of Bozeman, Montana, is a moderate trail for those who love an array of hills, flat areas and downhill experiences. An average, full-length trail ride of near 25 miles typically takes about five hours to complete, so be sure to give yourself enough time to ride out the trail at your leisure.


#4 Bear Creek Trail – Ellijay, GA

The beauty of old growth trees is the huge draw of this trail. Along the ride, you will be immersed in a sea of different local trees. A nice, brisk ride in the early fall often is the best to see not only the beautiful colors, but also a nice blanket of fog covering the lowlands. This beauty brings Bear Creek Trail the #4 spot.


#5 North Fork Mountain – Petersburg, WV

At our final mountain biking destination takes us into the heart of the Appalachian Mountain Range. The trail is steep and rocky. This trail requires a more experienced rider. If you can reach the summit, you’ll revel in the breathtaking views atop this trail.
