    Most Spectacular Ride/Jumps for Photo/Video

    I'm planning to be in Northern California to shoot some mountain biking videos and I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for good locations. I'm looking for places with not only good riding but cool backdrops. I'm hunting for:

    - Good Dirt Jumps, either parks or extended long runs.
    - long rolling downhill runs. Ideally with a mixture of some forest (and hopefully North Shore style stuff) and some open terrain. I'm not really looking for super techinical stuff but more flowing routes - we'll be using some GoPro rigs so we don't want super bumpy runs.

    Any advice is much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Won't bother anyone while staging shoot's either.(Big + here in SF area)
    Mile(long rolling downhill runs)+ Boy Scouts(- Good Dirt Jumps) have some of what you've described.
    If you decide to shoot within midpen lands...

    Please consider weekday outings rather than potentially high trails use weekend times.

    Where in the state will you be?

    Do you have unlimited travel budget and timeline?

    Who is the intended audience of the video you are shooting?
    everyone drives a Used Car
