Top Places to Mountain Bike in the USA
1. Moab, Utah
They say the best way to experience the beauty of this red-rock landscape is to ride it. You can choose to ride the area’s popular trails such as Porcupine Rim, Slickrock and Whole Enchilada (which starts above 10,000 feet) or opt for lesser known trails that surround the area. While it’s possible to ride this area all year long, the best time to ride is in the spring and fall, which is also when cyclists from most ski towns in the West show up.
2. Crested Butte, Colorado
With more than 750 miles of singletrack, this area has a week’s worth of quality rides just waiting for you. From buff trails that wind through wildflowers, to rugged backcountry rides that climb to 13,000 feet, these trails offer you some of the best scenery in the country. The beginner-friendly Lupine Trail follows the path from town, north to the ski area and back again. The Evolution Bike Park at Crested Butte Mountain Resort has more than 30 miles of downhill and cross country trails.
