    My current top trails are based on what trails have put the biggest smile on my face. Some are pedal trails, some are not.

    Windy Pass to Lick Creek (The chilcotins in General)

    Gornergrat - Zermatt (already mentioned by a few, 14km of flowy downhill)

    A line - I like speed and flying, and this is probably one of the most famous trails in the world

    Jumpingpound Ridge to Cox Hill, just west of Calgary, ab. I ride this trail many times every year, not overly long or challenging, just fun. We had a night ride on this trail last fall with about an inch of snow on top of frozen ground, every corner was high speed drifting with enough traction to hold your line. It was called run of the year by many in the group...

    I would add Palisades off of highway 410 in WA. A big climb with incredible cliftop views, flowing singletrack and a touch of gnar.

    Someone already mentioned Alpine Trail in Oakridge but I will repeat it. That might be the most fun trail I have ever ridden, especially the Jedi trees. I <3 dirt.

    +1 To Tahoe Rim Trail. Specifically kingburry area was my fav. I enjoyed the flume because of beautiful views as well.
    +1 To Mckenzie River Trail. Not a ton of climbing but great terrain and the blue pool is neat.
    +1 To Enchilada (only got to ride UPS/LPS and Porcupine but it was dynamite. Can't imagine what the top was like...damn snow...


    Some more WA love to be mentioned:
    -Sun Top/Ranger Creek combo near greenwater off of 410 certainly a lot of climbing if you choose to climb it but works great with a few pickups.

    Of the trails I rode in Europe I'd have to put in that trail in Zermatt



    and Suvretta Pass in Engadin



    and would add Frisby Ridge in Revelstoke

    I think I missed that one. Is it close to the Resurrection trail?

    My mountainn biking experience is only in CA. This thread reminds me to get out of state this summer!

    Obviously a +1 to the trt flume loop and downier. Both favorite rides of mine.

    Soquel demo forest in Santa cruz has the most flowy loamy singletrack I have been on. No views though...

    I am also a huge fan of bidwell in chico

    I used to do the May TT when I lived in NY. That climb is a bear.
    Parts of the CDT near Wolf Creek pass are pretty special.

    I need to throw in the epic mtn biking in Sorata, Bolivia. Went with a guy from durango who worked with the "most dangerous road" folks before designing his own trail in the Cordillera Real.

    Trails around Carcross, Yukon are worthy. Fantastic alpine scenery.

    I think Lee Lau is headed up that way now... he somehow conned Toyota into paying for his gas! Here is a link to my Chilcotin trip which is similar to the one Lee posted in this thread a few years ago. Terrain like that deserves a bump too just because it's so awesome.

    Line Creek Plateau to Corral Creek off the Beartooth Highway. Views, tundra freeriding, fun, fast, long downhill and Sam's Tap Room in Red Lodge when you're done.

    He'd be better off working as a lawyer than blogging for 100 hours for a couple tanks of gas!

    He bills clients while blogging. Double, sometimes triple billing.

    Rose Meadows on Tahoe Rim Trail to flume to chimney beach to swim in lake tahoe with a beer.

    Would NOT put downieville on the list. not sure why so much love for downieville.

    Toad's should be on list, but 'Rose to toad's'??? Really? 50+ miles, 8K of climbing? not sure how much you could really enjoy the DH after that day.

    Olleros descent in peru. from top of mountains to pacific. 10K descent. incredible.

    I need to take notes as well. getting to the point where I need to check some of these off the list before I get too old to do them!

    Nice! I also nominate Sorata, it's more fun than Takesi (which everyone should also do) and certainly goes down in the must do books. You know Travis? He was out of town when I was there but that didn't prevent us from having a blast.

    It's seriously epic. I was tagging along with those guys and Marco Toniolo, he let me photograph next to him so some of my shots look similar to his, no copyright infringement!! He has been back multiple times to shoot with Rene.
