    Favorite 'trail' is to get to the top of Eagle Peak in Stanislaus National Forest then go back to Strawberry via Eagle Peak, Hammill Canyon, Snake Dance, and Lower Pinecrest Peak trails. Plural, yes, but 4000+ feet of vert in this connection.

    Oat Hill Mine is one of the best trails anywhere. The views are amazing. Spring and fall are my favorite times to ride there, the views are bright and colorful. However, winter is a fun time as well. The water dripping down off the rocks form icicles and unique frost formations.
    And then there is the riding. A great combination of tech and flow. Something make everybody happy.

    Hole in the Ground for me. After the tough climb you start descending on a really cool spine. Then you just flow through a trail that was built with us in mind. Also the great scenery. The last 1/4 of the ride is pretty awful (juttery staircase, loose rocks, badly marked trail, riding the road back to the car) but it's worth it.

    My top 5:

    #5: I have to say the Paradise Royale loop is a hoot. It is kind of out of the way for a 13 mile loop though. But the bike park adds some excitement. I can't wait to see the new trails that are being added.

    #4: Some of my favorite trails are in SC and surrounding areas, but unfortunately they don't really exist except in the figment of my imagination. And they are far too short.

    #3: Whoever said Mt. Elwell is a glutton for punishment But for sure, that is definitely one of the most beautiful epic rides in/near D'ville. I'm not too familiar with Lakes Basin trails, but did the IMBA epic route including Mt. Elwell, so that's what I am picturing.

    #2: Big Boulder is definitely my favorite trail in Downieville.

    #1: Christmas Valley in South Tahoe has got to be my favorite single trail so far, for the rocks and the flow.

    Definitely have to check out Forest Hill and the trails around Strawberry.

    Basically sits behind Sierra at Tahoe off of Hwy 50, like some trails in the Downieville area access to the top is via that pesky trail that run from Mexico to Canada. There are creative ways to hit it though besides waiting till fall, shoot me a PM when you plan on being in the area next summer.

    I'll have to say Skid Marks-Lincoln Express-Brake Through-Seven Bridges-Paper Route-Shot Gun...is my favorite. In reality anything in the Sierra at the time is my favorite trail...

    Anywhere in the South Tahoe Region is super fun.

    The Tahoe Rim Trail - Spooner to Kingsbury Segment is especially muy bueno.

    I'd go with 3rd Divide...just lights out fun!

    Also love my local Auburn trails: Confluence and Connector both just after sunrise with zero traffic....fun to open it up where you have clear sightlines

    Honorable Mention is Gail's Trail at Boggs

    How do the N Fork and Mumford Bar trails look these days? I haven't been in those parts since the last fire and can envision a ton off dead-fall.

    It's a heartbreak, for sure. The trails are essentially open, with some tread damage in the fire area. There were some trees down between Beacroft and Sailor Flat trails, but I suspect American River Trail is open all the way thru now (I was last there over a year ago). Mumford is open.

    Each year it will look less worse for forest bare. I live just below Sugar Pine Res, so essentially this point to point ride ends at a BBQ at my house. Epic ride through great country and A LOT of different of track.

    (...let me know if if you are up for it next summer, and we can set-up a shuttle, mtbr outing Iowa Hill style. There are many big, fantastic all-day loops from home too.)

    I usually do an out and back on this trail with the turn around spot at Lower Montez Lake. It's a great spot to take a break or swim; it also cuts out the stairs and that shitty gravel fire road.

    I must nominate Big Tree and Widow Maker trails in coastal Mendocino.




    Manly Gulch, Caspar Crossing North & South are equally awesome, but I have no pics.

    We also have excellent gravel to ride.







    These guys can show it to you.
