For those with a taste for adventure or individuals with mountain bike experience there are numerous stimulating, picturesque and often demanding trails to follow.

Mountain bike riding tracks can be found all over America, wherever you are living. Excellent mountain biking trails aren't simply found on mountains. In fact, almost all scenic or rough trails can offer serious exercise and adventure even for very experienced bikers. However, because of the type of terrain, the best mountain routes are situated in the Pacific Northwest and the Southwest but are also found in the South East around North Carolina. The Pacific Northwest has some excellent mountain bike trails including Northern California's American River Bike Path and Oregon's Deschutes River Trail. The National Trail in Arizona is a tough trail for more experienced riders as is Moab's Slick Rock Trail in Utah which is a famous twelve mile ride.

States in the Western part of America are clearly better if you are looking for higher elevation trails although the Southwest areas are gaining in popularity with trail riders as they have also gained an enviable reputation for superb accommodation. Several extremely popular trails in this area in the US include Blankets Creek Bicycle Trail, Woodstock Georgia, the Colorado Trail Breckenridge and Bent Creek, Asheville North Carolina.Even though it is very gratifying to reach the end of these tracks the objective is to enjoy the trail as well as getting some beneficial exercise so don't over do it, you don't have to finish the whole ride if you find it too difficult.

A famous mountain trail we ought to talk about is the longest mountain bike trail in the world. The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route is over two thousand miles long all the way from Mexico to Canada. Where it passes through the mountainous areas of Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming it can be tough, as some stretches have steep climbs and downward gradients.


For those who are healthy and fit there isn't a better way to take pleasure in the wonders of nature and get plenty of good quality exercise in the open air. Enjoyable vacations are not going to cost a lot and may provide a fine adventure without breaking your budget
