    Vote for your favorite national park here.

    Ok, the purpose of this thread is to have a database of what's in your favorite national park. Vote on a 1-10 scale please 1=thumbs down/10=EPIC. I'll go first with the only national park I've ever ridden in. Yosemite national park. I give this a 6. BUT, I've only ridden in the valley. I've never rode up in the high country. A person could go up to the summit (Tioga pass @ 9945 feet) and ride into the valley and that would probably rate a 10. In the valley there is around 10 miles of biking to be had. The score is based on the small amount of miles NOT the scenery. Ok, what's your pick and why?
    The older I get, the faster I was.

    I vote for Grand Canyon, (but I'm being biased). I can offer some creative ways to offer bike tours if you want to go longer distances/see different stuff. What's it like riding a bike? ? Plateau Tours - bicycling/hiking/exploring
    The southwest has a number of great cycling opportunities, but parks in general its a good idea to start early before the crush of traffic. One of the best rides I did in GCNP was to watch the sunrise at Desert View, then ride westward stopping whenever I liked, and finished at Hermits Rest. It was about 34 miles.
    There is a big difference between ripping and skidding.

    Isle Royal=10

    Is not to be missed...It's the one that absolutely nobody goes to, but when they do they keep coming back again and again.

    I used to live 45 min from the North Rim...This is where we would go: Zion/Bryce/Arches=10
