Poll: What's your favorite trail system?

Personally for me, being only an hour away I really like the brown county system.

Everyone else?

Have to live in CA to appreciate this as it's not someplace tourists go... but Mt. Laguna, just east of San Diego... beautiful area, lakes, miles and miles and miles of flowy singeltrack. If you want technical climbs and descents there is also that; plus alittle "bike park" - jump ramps and other obstacles. In the winter, the lakes are full and its chilly but it's really lovely. Spring time it's all about wildflowers. Summertime, we all take a break as its too hot but fall and crisp air, is just around the corner.

Second favorite (and yes this place is touristy) is the Arizona Trail, North Rim, Grand Canyon.

The stuff between Boulder and Lyons...Heil and Hall linked by Picture Rock. And then you have Walker and White a stone's throw away. I mean, I guess I *technically* liked Moab more, but while I was still living in Boulder, the sheer convenience made that those a favorite.

No mountains here, only 1000-3000 foot high hills connected by thousands of miles of logging roads. Pretty cool in Clatsop and Pacific county. Gates keep out vehicle weekend wanderers though some caution is needed for road patrols. Foot and non-motorized usually get a free pass though you can be tossed for bad behavior. Off limits in active cutting ops and during fall hunting seasons for obvious reasons though some elk hunters use MTBs to access gated areas remaining closes.

Brown County is a 25 mile system that is the best place in Indiana to mountain bike at.

Aha! Well, your thread seems successful.

My favorite is definitely Switchgrass at Wilson Lake, Kansas. 21 miles of IMBA epic trails, plus around 10 miles of beginner stuff.

Wake County NC system, mostly Harris Lake and Crabtree Lake.
Neither are very hard, just a lot of fun.

Alien Run - Aztec, NM. This trail goes around a supposed 1948 UFO crash site. Very technical in places, lots of fun slickrock, and fast switchbacks. Lots of trees waiting to either high-five you or flat out knock you off your bike if you aren't on your game.

Yeah, it's only about 2.5 hours north of Spokane. There's decent camping in the Lion's Park right in town or lots of B&Bs and a few hotels around. As well, there are lots of other good trails you can ride to from town.
