Any trail that is blessed with dirt.

The one that has the fewest people on it and the most remote.

The gradual technical descent is awesome (btw, nice pic!) - you make it as hard as you want, by making it as fast as you want. But a very close second is that same trail in the opposite direction.

-F

PS - I'm never in such a hurry that I don't appreciate some good scenery, too.

I voted for moderate tech descent, but the trails I prefer are just moderate technical. Lots of rocks, with both technical climbing and descending.

choosing only one of these would be boring. that said, dirt jumps are not my think so I like to have trails with all of the above. Doesn't all have to be on the same trail, but I also like a mix.

My favorite routes have medium-technical singletrack climbs and descents with some medium tech and some flow features.

I don't really care for wood work. Too sketchy when wet. And I prefer a bigger canvas than dirt jumps.

Poor poll.

Only one type of climb. Isn't that half of the ride by miles, or far more by time (discounting shuttling)?
