THE TOP FIVE MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS TO RIDE IN AMERICA

You voted, the Price Point team voted and the results are in. We asked “what is your favorite mountain bike trail in the US”. We had many responses from the widely known to the most obscure trails in the country but all of them look amazing. There is definitely a lean to the west on this list with only one of the top ten east of the Mississippi. Now if I can figure out how to find the time to take them all on. The voting was close but here are the top five.

Porcupine Rim – Moab, UT

The first of several Moab trails to make the top 20, no surprise there. I was surprised not to see The Whole Enchilada in the top 5 though. This trail is rated a 4 (difficult) so hydration is key. We offer some great hydration packs to get your ride started out right.

Snow Summit – Big Bear, CA

This one is close to Price Point so maybe that skewed the voting a little bit. Still an amazing trail that is worth the visit. Snow Summit has Southern California’s only chair lifts for mountain bikers. Use your Go Pro going up the lift and down the hill. They have a limited season so get out there this summer.

Copper Harbor Trails – Copper Harbor, Michigan

Some of the most breathtakingly beautiful trails in the nation. Situated on Lake Superior on Michigan picturesque upper peninsula. This is our only top fiver in the eastern half of the country. It can get wet and muddy here so be sure to bring along your mud jacket

Silver Mountain MTB Well – Kellogg, Idaho

Consistently rated as one of the best MTB Parks in the country, you don’t want to miss this one.  They have trails for everyone but if you are an experienced rider venture out to the lower mountain for 3,300 feet of vertical descent.  You might want to have an Intense Pro Build on your rack when you go.

Boot Leg Canyon Las Vegas, Nevada

It’s in the middle of the desert, it’s hot, it’s grueling but it will test your mettle. If your up for the challenge take on this technical monster. It can be rocky but it is close to the Hoover Damn and Lake Mead if you need a break. Don’t hit the trail without your Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Bib Shorts.

No list is ever perfect but this is what Price Point Nation had to say. Do you have your own list? Let’s hear it.
