    Favorite trails for SS

    My fav, hands down is Lake Norman State Park in NC. 30+ miles of gently rolling terrain, made for a SS !
    What's yours ?

    The ones that go up and down and are covered in dirt... If you are looking for a specific trail then look to Copper Harbor, MI.

    I like the park near by my place. Some flat loose gravel, mixed with short steep climbs, single track, cliffs, and rocky/rooty down hill. The only down side is that it's such a small park, the whole lap takes about 15 minutes (30 minutes if I take every single route). I ride from my house to the park and back, takes about an hour, so I go there just about everyday during summer.

    I'm really good looking.

    Any of the many trail options that I can access just riding out my driveway and picking a direction.

    It's nice to see so many ss guys have adopted Will Rogers worldview, but for me, I have to pick and choose when to ride ss and when to punt (geared fs). I guess that goes with the territory when you are old,overweight and out of shape and own a cheap ss that weighs the same as a geared fs.
    If I'm doing a 4 mile climb on a ride where I will be spinning out on the descent, I'm taking the geared fs. As a footnote i just bought a used ss and it's been 6 years since I last rode one, so yes it is an agonizing re-appraisal, but I like it.

    While it's true that there are positive experiences to take away from pretty much ANY trail on a SS, there are some trails I enjoy my FS bike on more than the SS, for example, Lookout Mountain in the GW in VA. On the other hand there are trails that are intensely fun on both bikes, but there is just something special about them on SS - Lock 4, in Gallatin, TN for example. That would have to be one of my favorite SS trails.
