I 5 percorsi MTB più belli del Nord America - California

Any mountain trail list would be incomplete without the birthplace of the mountain bike as a sport: California.

Deciding which locations to include in this list was not easy and so many top destinations had to be left out. However, these are just a few of the many trails that you can ride with your bike. There are many more just waiting to be discovered. Let’s stop talking and start riding!
