Some of the best trails aren't always listed anywhere. I usually spent a buck or two (For a long distance call) and call a local bike shop. They have always been helpful and seem to know where good spots.

I would agree that a lot of trails don't make it onto trail websites. Trails.com and others like it make you sign up to get all the details, so I usually just find online forums [i.e. forums.mtbr.com] and hunt around in the regional subforums until I find a knowledgeable local.

Seriously? I didn't even click the link 'cause the name looked lame... Who spells "mntn" like that? There's only one N in mtn.

Find a mountain biking club near you. They usually have the trail info. BBTC is an excellent resource in the PNW.
