Best Mountain-Biking Trail

Vulture's Knob

Mountain biking may be strictly verboten in the Metroparks and most other areas conducive to the sport, but Vulture's Knob would stand out among any competitors, legal or not. The course, a quick trip off State Route 83 in Wooster, crisscrosses 125 acres of rolling land. The privately owned course, designed specifically for mountain bikes, has a manicured single track with log crossings, steep winding hills, and switchbacks. There are loops for amateurs and more skilled bikers; either way, you'll get a workout. Use of the trail is free, although donations are encouraged, and races do have registration fees.
