I'm new to the world of Garmin for actual GPS functions, as the 705 that I have was really only used as a head for a powermeter on my road bike.

Is there a good repository for mountain bike trail systems and/or rides? I tried looking on mapmyride, but there's so many 5 mile around the neighborhood types of rides labeled "mountain" searching is painful.

Plus, I remember running some of the trails and adding about 5 miles because a switchback I missed took me completely off course and ended up lost.

It's not for your Garmin, but if you have a smartphone, download an app called Maprika. I've uploaded a lot of maps of local trail systems and dropped GPS anchors at major intersections. The point is that your phone will display your GPS location on whatever trail map you are viewing. It's tremendously helpful for someone new to a trail system.
