    Trip to Pacific Northwest and Western Canada - Advice Needed

    I am going on a road trip with 3-4 people in a van and hitting up Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Whistler, Banff and anywhere in-between. I plan on doing DH riding in Whistler, but dont know any other trails to hit along the way.

    Any must hit trails along this route? Riding two full-suspension (1 DH and 1 all-mountain) and two hard-tails.

    Here is the planned route:

    You should be able to hit Keystone Standard basin in Revelstoke.... probably one of the most beautiful trails in North America. Not terribly suitable for a DH bike tho...

    I can't tell which site you are biking south of Portland, but hopefully it is Alsea Falls.
    Also, it looks like you could change your route just a little and stop at Oakridge and Bend--two of the best mountain biking towns in Oregon, maybe the whole PNW.

    Dunno, never biked in Colorado. In truth, there's no one "best" trail but there are lots of amazing ones. :-)

    Which Keystone are you referring to then?

    I said "Keystone Standard Basin in Revelstoke" and "Keystone Standard" in the follow up. Revelstoke is a mountain town in the northern Kootenay region of British Columbia.

    That's not too far out of the way. If you had to pick one trail in that area do what would it be?
