    Post your favorite trail video

    I was browsing on youtube and I found these videos of local trails I go to so I figured there must be tons of other videos of trails near all the forum members go to. So post them if you can find them.
    These videos were not shot by me.
    This is my favorite trail, most people use the fire road to get to it(like the guys in this video but me and my buddies climb up the single track and go back down, it's more rewarding that way.

    And I just discovered this trail and it's only 10 mins from my house.
    it's a three part video but this only the part one. Enjoy it guys!

    This was my favorite local spot before I moved to the land of crappy mountain biking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvGhGYA3Btg
    Not my video. I don't think I ever cleaned that section going up. It looks a lot easier on that video than it does in the saddle though...or maybe I'm just a wuss.

    Favorite ride that was more of a vacation spot than somewhere I could just go and ride all the time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LprtTlzHb3s
    Not my video either. Once again, they look a lot cooler than I did. The end sort of looks like me though.

    hmmmm....

    i interpreted it as "past your favorite video of a trail".
    not "post a video of your favorite trail".

    but it that case, here's some trails 20mins from my house:

    Why was there so much camera shake on such a buff trail?

    ^^ Well, let's see . . .
    1) It is a narrow-field Twety20 lipstick cam, which tends to exaggerate those things
    2) There are 12+ jumps
    3) and 9+ step-downs and drops
    4) and one big step-up
    5) and 3 big 'waterfall' rock faces.
    6) Pro Lars Sternberg was going warp-speed on it all.

    I was kidding. That trail is crazy, and the speed he was going at was insane.

    Haha! Yeah that's the one I smacked my front tire square on into the face of the rock instead of popping over it like I was supposed to.

    The move that I still haven't mastered is :38 in where the fast guys are doubling down that rock face. At 1:44 where Lars bends left after going down the waterfall rock - - that sets you up to roll off what they call the 'Seattle Line' (1:46). Kyle Thomas finally taught me that one but it made me pucker the first time I went off it.
