Pisgah in North Carolina and Bentonville Arkansas are definitely two to hit.

I'm not from the states, but from all the videos I've seen Bentonville would be one place I would want to go

Pisgah and Dupont State Forest are definitely worth hitting. Bentonville could be too if you are into jump lines.

Pisgah is a lot of fire road up and then gnar, roots, and rocks down. Fantastic riding, probably the best enduro type of riding on the East coast. If miles of rocks, roots, and drops is your idea of fun then you will be in heaven. I'd check out Black Mountain, Bennet Gap, and Farlow's Gap if you really want the gnar experience.

Dupont is a little more XCish but is still a fantastic trail system. Definitely study your route or find a local because it is quite big and confusing if you haven't ridden it before.

Bentonville is lacking elevation, but the trails there are incredibly well done. Plenty of Jump Lines and features ranging from small tables to death defying road gaps. It is surprisingly safe and easy to ride since the trails are so fantastically and professionally built.

If you're headed through the NC/TN area I would recommend hitting up Beach Mountain or Windrock if you want to do a bit of park. I loved Beach the few times I went, and have heard great things about Windrock.

Absolutely check out Vortex and the surrounding area. Also check out Alafia, Grapefruit trails, Graham Swamp, and Crooms/Drunken Monkey!

If you'll be in Utah to ride, hit up Moab and ride The Whole Enchilada. There is nothing on that trail which is terribly sketchy or gnarly by "enduro" standards, but the whole ride is a 30-mile epic. The best views I've ever had and probably the #1 MTB ride in the country.

EDIT: Oooops, I didn't see that you're doing this soon. The Whole Enchilada likely won't be open until June/July due to snow, but the rest of the riding in Moab is similarly epic. You can actually start riding TWE at lower altitudes in spring from what I understand.

IN CA, you should go to these towns for riding: Marin, Downieville,Santa Cruz.

Oakridge Oregon and Mt. Bachelor are 2 of our states gems! If you havn't hit bachelor then you've been depriving yourself my friend.

Check out Fire Mtn in Cherokee, NC. Well worth the climb up for the long decents. You can easily string together a couple places in one day up there if you conserve your energy some.

Warrior Creek at Kerr Scott dam is also good, and you can hit Dark Mtn while there.

If you are in Arkansas and want shuttled DH trails, check out Lake Leatherwood and Ponca. Both within 1hr of Bentonville.
