    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.

    Another vote for Big Boulder -> Third Divide plus Ridge -> Sawpit.

    Some views? SOME VIEWS????

    Good Lord, man, get excited about it! Those are some of the most awesome views around.

    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.

    Donner Lake Rim Trail. Nice, rocky and swoopy. My favorites include some trails with no signage around Truckee. All kinds of fun.

    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...
