The Mountain Biking Bucket List

Whether you’re a novice or experienced mountain biker, you probably love finding new places to ride. No matter what type of ride you like best, we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy exploring 5 of the best mountain bike trails below. 

Moab, Utah

Frequently touted at the mountain biking capital of the United States (and even the world), Moab, Utah is one destination every avid mountain biker needs to have on his or her bucket list! Riders from all over the world come to this unique location to ride trails such as Poison Spider and the Whole Enchilada. 

Home to all types of trails, Moab offers something for all experience levels, as well as gorgeous scenery that includes red rock formations, beautiful clear skies and more.

Oakridge, Oregon

Oakridge, Oregon is a quiet, old logging town that has become an increasingly popular destination for mountain bikers thanks to miles of singletrack coupled with beautiful landscape and scenic views. 

You’ll find a variety of trails to explore, from classic ones like Moon Point to ones in the old-growth forests like Larison Rock, and more. 

Roanoke, Virginia

Boasting an extensive network of well-rounded trails, Roanoke, Virginia offers plenty of classic, East Coast mountain biking terrain to explore, including flow trails like the one at Mill Mountain.

You’ll especially love the shaded trails in the woods with rocks and roots that create challenging lines!

Nashville, Indiana

While Indiana isn’t home to the mountains that Utah boasts, the trails in Brown County State Park are a great way to experience the rolling hills throughout the area. Offering a range of singletrack trails from beginner to extremist levels, you’ll find a trail that suits your riding level and meets you at the thrill-level you desire. 

There are also trails leading out of the park and into Yellowwood State Forest that offer more of a backcountry feel with log crossings and large rocky obstacles.
