Strava for Mountain Biking?

I picked up road biking this summer, and it's been great.

But I was thinking with the fall, and generally overall, I am considering mountain biking.

But I'm not sure if there's anything near me. I do biking for excercise during the week, so having to go long distances isn't going to work for me.

With Strava, Ride with GPS and also a RailTrails app I have, I can find lots of road biking segments and locations. Is there such an app (or website) for Mountain Biking? This is in New England, if that makes a difference.

I use Strava for mountain biking and so do 99% of the people I bike with. I'm sure there are segments on your MTB trails.

Lest my response seems overly flippant, I should add that if you're not seeing any MTB segments on Strava near where you live, then most likely there isn't much MTB going on nearby.

Besides Strava, you can also check out Trailforks: https://www.trailforks.com/ they got an app available too, which you can link your Strava account to.
