About The DirtWorld.com Trail Guides
Mountain biking is a dangerous sport and the trails listed in DirtWorld.com are not guaranteed to be
safe. Every time you climb on a mountain bike you are personally responsible for your own wellbeing. Have fun but
ride within your personal limits. Always maintain control of your bike and ride responsibly.
Some of the trails listed in DirtWorld.com are laid back and some are best left to those with a serious addiction
to adrenaline. Which is why we have created a rating system for you.
While DirtWorld.com's ratings gauge the trail's skill requirements and list most hazards, our ratings are completely
subjective. Several riders have built the trail database and their abilities and opinions vary widely. This virtually
guarantees that your personal opinion about any of the trails listed may vary drastically as well.
In addition, trails change on a regular basis due to the forces of nature, logging and various other reasons. While
we make every effort to keep our trail listings current, trails do change and they do close. We recommend calling
a local bike shop in the area you plan to ride to check on trail conditions and closures. If you find any trail
to be closed temporarily or permanently, please send an email to so we can update our listings.
We also recommend that you obtain a map of the area before hitting the trail. Maps can be obtained from local
bike shops, the Department of Natural Resources, and local ranger stations to name a few.

Something For Everyone
A mish mash of trails that will entertain riders at every skill level. You'll find a combination of flat perfectly
manicured trails to tight turns to steep and rocky climbing and plain old scary descents. Beginners and Weekend Warrior riders, take extra care so you don't get over your head.
Non technical trails suited for riders who have not spent much time in the saddle. Trails are generally smooth
and flat. Basically one-step away from riding on the road. If you haven't biked off-road before, this is the place to start.
A collection of semi technical trails. Trails include some roots, rocks and swithcbacks. These tend to be singletrack trails and can get narrow in places. These rides are for intermediate-level riders in good aerobic condition with some technical handling skills. The majority of mountain bike enthusiasts fit into this category.
Roots, rocks, switchbacks, steep drops, burly climbs and tight twisting ribbons of dirt. Our advanced trail rating
lists all the tough trails that are generally under the 20-mile mark. While they are over rowdy terrain their distance
is easy to handle for most advanced riders. Some advanced rides receive this rating because they are less technical, but extremely long. Good aerobic condition is a must.
More roots, rocks, switchbacks, steep drops, burly climbs, and tight twisting ribbons of dirt. However, the trails
listed under Masochistic are bigger and uglier than most any trail you have ever been on. Ride lengths are longer,
climbs are deadlier and descents are down right dangerous. Masochistic trails are for semi pro riders and pro riders
