The Big Boulder Trail

Downieville, California

In an area blessed with an array of great trails, it's sometimes tough to pinpoint a favorite. However, in the fat-tire mecca of Downieville, California, there may be consensus: the Big Boulder Trail is "the one." This trail features sustained climbing, outstanding mountain scenery, varied technical challenges, and singletrack descending that almost lives up to that impossible descriptor: endless. The Big Boulder is a historic 130-year-old mining trail, which has recently been revived as one of mountain biking's finest singletracks.

Buckhorn Trail

Santa Barbara, California

The Buckhorn ride features the best of classic Southern California riding: long climbs on well-maintained fire roads, followed by steep, challenging singletrack descents. It adds beautiful views and a remoteness that's sometimes missing in SoCal mountain biking. Your cell phone won't work most of the time, and you may encounter overgrown stretches and other adventere-inducing conditions. Congratulations — you have officially escaped the front country!

Berryman Trail

Potosi, Missouri

Take a ride back in time on southeastern Missouri's Berryman Trail. Located in Mark Twain National Forest on the low shoulders of the ancient and gnarled Ozark Mountains, Berryman offers classic Midwestern mountain biking.

Traverse from woodsy creek bottoms to ridgetops on tight, rocky singletrack. You'll pass a cave rumored to be the hiding place of notorious Old West outlaw Jesse James and his gang. The route mixes narrow toboggan-run descents, rock gardens and twisting, bench-cut singletrack as you curl back to the Brazil Creek campground.
