Helpful Information about Mountain Biking Trails

"Get a bicycle. You will not regret it if you live." Though Mark Twain wasn't around when the mountain bike was invented, we're certain he'd still feel the same about bicycles! offers a wide variety of mountain bike trails, including ones built on forest roads through state or federal lands, upon old mining and logging lines, or along cliff-hanging routes that follow former tourist railways. We include mountain bike trails throughout the country, and all of those trails listed on this website are open to other uses, such as hiking or inline skating. In a few cases you may share the trail with ATVs and equestrians, especially the more remote or long-distance trails that appeal to advanced mountain bikers, as well as equestrians and ATVers. distinguishes mountain bike trails from other bike trails by the consistency of trail conditions and surface type. Basically, any surface that isn't paved for most of its route will  be noted as a mountain bike trail. Where the information is known, we include the level of trail difficulty, but in general most trails are not too strenuous. Also, we don't list trails that are built for the exclusive use of mountain bikes.

Of course, not all mountain biking trails will give you jaw-dropping views from mountain tops. Some provide a deliciously dirty slog through muddy, overgrown patches of backwoods and bogs. Others simply offer your shocks-and body-a workout on a ballast surface. For only a handful of trails listed here, biking is expressly forbidden, which we note when the information is available.

All trails listed on are multi-use, so whichever your mode of travel, keep in mind the common right-of-way rules of thumb, unless otherwise posted on the trail:

  • bicyclists yield to horses, inline skaters, and pedestrians
  • pedestrians and inline skaters yield to horses
  • motorized vehicles yield to all

In addition, always ride on the right, pass on the left, and maintain a safe, reasonable speed. When passing, let others know with a handlebar bell or with the friendly warning: "Bikes passing on your left."
