Best Mountain

Vulture's Knob, Wooster

Nestled amid the gently rolling cornfields of Wooster, the Knob is the state's premier biking spot. You'll find the best of everything: bone-jangling rock gardens, white-knuckle downhills, and lung-busting uphills, as well as a fair variety of jumps, balance beams, and other wicked obstacles. For the trick rider, the side trail called "Killbuck Run" is stocked with skinny bridges, some as high as five feet off the ground. In one section, you ride across a six-inch-wide balance beam to get over a muck-filled swamp. Afterward, head down the street to Applebee's, where you can lick your wounds over an ice-cold margarita.
