Why we love it

Nestled deep in the woods of the state’s Elm Ridge Wild Forest, these trails — deemed some of the finest single-track east of the Mississippi — have been developed specifically for use by mountain bikers. A series of Fun Loops, great for less skilled riders, climb gently as they parallel streams and rock walls. For those up to more of a challenge, the Levitate trail offers a heart-pumping ascent to the ridgetop, where miles of additional trails along the escarpment await your exploration before you decide to take the thrilling plunge downhill to your car.

More to explore
