Best Mountain Biking

West Branch State Park

Less than an hour from Cleveland lies some of the most challenging riding this side of real mountains. The Ravenna park boasts almost 10 miles of trails, ranging from laid-back cruising to stomach-in-your-throat technical trickery. Enter from Rockspring Road, and start with the trails close to the lake. They're relatively smooth, so they're good for warming up. Slam some Aquafina, then head across the gravel access trail for more technical riding. What sets these trails apart is the rocks - just try to make it all the way through without dabbing (that's biker-speak for putting a foot down). <
