Alpine and Waldo Lake trails, near Oakridge Oregon. Thats about 35 miles of singletrack
your favourite section of singletrack anywhere?
Favourite bit of singletrack and best are two different things to me.
Favourite is a bit in my local woods that I've been riding for 15 years or so - and still love. You'd probably know it Jedi.
Best? Hmmm, probably either the descent from Tello on holiday with Freeride Spain (Sierra Nevada mountains).
Either Boggart Hole Clough in Blackley, Manchester:
Glen Avenue entrance down to the Rochdale Road entrance, skirting the John Lewis playing fields. Reminds me of Raleigh Grifters and being very small. Now a bit overgrown.
The drop down to LLanfairfechan, through the gorse bushes, from the signpost at the highpoint on the old Roman Road that ends up at the falls car park in Aber.
Great thread btw, loads of really good ideas on here.
The bit we just opened up this morning
On the Quantocks, I think is my favourite, although some of Port Hills in NZ comes close...
@Rusty Spanner - is that basically heading north from the high point of the Roman Road above Llanfairfechan?
wonderful bit at Hamsterley, away from the 'proper' trails. Long may it remain secret and unsullied
there's a maybe 100m stretch a few mins from my house, I just ride it over and over and over again every time I go past. Just perfect, apart from the length.
A sneaky stretch in the Mendips, in a wood that I pretty much grew up in.
Home: Cairngorms. Hard to pick just one but the Lairig Grhu is pretty special of a summer's evening.
Abroad: Emerson Dam down to Martigny in Switzerland. More descending than you can shake a stick at with a little bit of everything.
oxymoron - that'll be that section in frog combe i mentioned several pages back....

Absolute best I've ridden is probably Trail 8 in Killington Vermont - twisty, rooty singletrack that traverses the mountain so it takes 40ish minutes
In the UK, I still feel the love for the singletrack I started riding on - Upper Quarry in Ashton Court, Bristol - on a good day, there's just no better feeling than flying along it.
Yeah Upper Quarry, or Badger as I know it as, is sweet. Smiths Coombe in the 'tocks is great, and I enjoy the Chimney, though it's not really singletrack. Cats Bells in the Lakes is nice as I recall, though I last rode it in 1994!
Black Craigs the whole section after Heartbreak Hill at Kirroughtree love that bit
Thanks jedi (if you were referring to mine?)
jam bo ~ yes the very same, now I look back at your description. I like the fact that the 'entrance' is a bit hidden, steep and techy too. I just needs to be longer!
Rhodedendron trail/Caravan/Jedi (no relation)/Camber, all in the Wyre. Can't choose between 'em.
As for 'man-made' trails, High As a a Kite an Nant-Yr-Arian is pretty sweet.
Peaks somewhere me thinks cut gate, not my favourite but damn good.
