Here is my list of The Top 100 Trails in Western North America – as selected from the over 1,000 individual trails that I have personally ridden.  I also continue to explore new trails and so will periodically update this list.

As a complement to this ride list, I have also added a Top 10 Trails list for each of Arizona, British Columbia and Utah – three of my favorite riding regions. I also plan to add top 10 trail lists for Oregon, Washington and Colorado in the near future. So, stay tuned!

I hope this list and hotlinks to the associated videos (just click on the trail name) are helpful for you as you plan your own ride excursions to these fabulous ride destinations.  Please note that descriptions of each trail can be found in the description area embedded within each video. ENJOY!!
