Depends on what you mean by "difficult." Where are you, anyway? The Sierra trails in Cali are difficult because they're full of big rocks. Trails here on Kaua'i Hawaii are difficult because they're muddy and can get so covered in elephant grass that you can't see the ground in front of you. And though I've never been to Whistler, trails there look difficult because you wind up flying through the air a lot.traylseeker said:My goal is to eventually ride on some trails in other states. I would love to just see what an extremely difficult trail looks like, not that I have any capability of riding it. Where would that trail be??
They got big rocks in Fruita CO. There are some gnarly trails up there...:thumbsup:traylseeker said:My goal is to eventually ride on some trails in other states.

Being from Tahoe, we do have a lot of technical trail riding. Having been to Moab a few dozen times, and Squamish/Whistler too, I would easily have to say Squamish and Whistler win. And as you said, not the bike park but all the stuff around Whistler that is not on the bike park.ebxtreme said:No contest. Whistler, Squamish and the Shore.
I'm not talking about the bike park and/or the big huck trails which everyone equates to these places......talkin' about the XC trails. Consistently steep and tech climbs and descents and very little time to just spin. Most people that ride those trails for the first time comment on the amount of focus required and that is probably more fatiguing to newbs than the physical nature of the trails.
I'm sure there are demanding trails in most areas, but everything I've ridden in Moab, Fruita, Sedona and Tahoe haven't challenged me as much.
