Top 10 Ridden US Biking Destinations in July

Aug 10, 2017
by Trevor May  
Using the Trailforks ridelog feature we are able to see what trails and regions are being ridden the most and when. We've queried the database to find the top ridden biking cities for the month of July 2017. You'll notice some big name destinations like Moab are not on the list, probably too hot for riding, less visitors in the middle of summer I guess?

You can make sure your rides are counted by either connecting your Strava account with Trailforks, or by recording your rides using the new tracking feature in the Trailforks app! The more people logging their rides to Trailforks the more accurate this data becomes for these fun lists, but more importantly for trail association advocacy use.

If people find these sort of blog posts interesting we can do much more, we can even seperate out locals riding their local network, to better gauge top travel destinations. If you have idea for other ridelog related lists we could do, let us know!

 Analysis needs refinement. The SQL query is counting the number of 'trails' ridden, which favors cities that have dense trail clusters consisting of very short trail segments. You'll notice that the cities at the top of your list have a higher total trail count than the total count of trail mileage (for example, Park City has 650 trail that total only 529 miles). Their trails are shorter than 1 mile, on average. Some lower on the list have an average trail length just over a mile...or up to 1.5 miles.

Cities with longer trail segments will not 'complete' in this analysis because, although they may be very popular riding destinations, they would not count as many 'ridden trails'. Next time, purely count mileage ridden? Or hours ridden?

Nice analysis nonetheless. I'm a GIS *and* SQL geek, so I love the way this was presented and the fact that you posted the query!!!!
  • + 12
 FYI: Moab has 352 trails with a total mileage of 766, making the average length of a trail 2.17 miles.
Also, note #8 in the list: Kirkland, Washington. Average trail length is less than a quarter-mile (0.239)!
  • + 5
 I was so excited to see the SQL then disappointed when I read it. Plus these sub mile segments shouldn't be called trails. Just because you can only Strava beat others over 200 yards doesn't mean that one easy section should get a trail name.
  • + 10
 Mileage ridden wouldn't work either, as that would skew towards flatter locales. I think hours is the most reasonable metric?
  • + 33
 There are so many different ways to skin the cat. But you are correct, to tally a region I should have not counted trails ridden, but just unique ridelogs in that city. I normally do this but forgot! I was originally going to do a list of the most ridden trails, that's where the query started but changed to do cities instead. Could do total rides, total rides by UNIQUE users, total distance and so on. Next month I will do unique rides in a city, as you pointed out makes more sense.
  • + 5
 @namdoogttam: Also: Trailforks (Skidmap) started in Utah. Probably many more users in Utah than anywhere else. Hard to believe Draper, UT is a primary riding destination. I believe what you are seeing is the (over?)use by high school teams training.
  • + 5
 @necros: Probably best to just count number of unique rides. Maybe with a criteria of >1 mile and must include at least 1 trail, to filter out road rides.
  • + 0
 You can typically get more mileage out of flatter trails. So I'd go with hours or vertical (or maybe just descent) instead.
  • + 3
 @dsirl: Trailforks for sure has a bias towards BC and Utah in a lot of the data, we have so many active users in those 2 regions. But as the site grows and ridelog usage as well, this starts to become less of an issue.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: ranking based on "most rides" would be biased towards short rides, like shuttling laps on a relatively short DH trail or series of trails. Conversely, ranking based on "most rides" would be biased against long rides, like an all day epic or even a big XC event.
  • + 12
 @dsirl: Go to Corner canyon (the exact area shown as "Draper") on any day of the week after work or on Saturday AM. You will see why it is #2. It def isn't the high schoolers...

 LOL you're all such nerds.

 Park city has 10 or so trails worth riding. If you like pedaling the same flat sagebrush stuff with a different name it's where you wanna ride. That imba gold rating is a joke and makes me question the quality of the riding at the other locations with the rating. Quality over quantity if you ask me.
  • + 12
 @weezyb: LOL, you clearly don't know where to ride.
  • + 2
 I'd be curious to see how many out of towners hit up Kirkland, it makes for a good on the way home destination, but there is so much better just a little bit more out of the way.
  • + 1
 @canadaka: "most ridden" should be a count of total rides. A ride being trailhead and out (filtered), as you said. Looking forward to next month.
  • + 9
 Interesting thing is a lot of the same cities are still in the top 10 if I change the query to only count rides. Park City, Utah Bellingham, Washington Bend, Oregon Draper, Utah Phoenix, Arizona Issaquah, Washington Flagstaff, Arizona Ogden, Utah Missoula, Montana Salt Lake City, Utah

 @weezyb: Damn, you clearly don't know where to ride in Park City then. Gnarly DH (NCS, Canyons DH), big jump trails (Tsunami, Raspberry Lane), epic (Crest), and everything in between. The only sage brush is in a couple of spots close to neighborhoods. You should give it a try again and climb up a bit into the aspens and pines.

 @properp: You're free to always go elsewhere. I hear mtbr is nice this time of year.

 Maybe going off total miles ridden or simply # of rides logged rather than trails ridden would be a better count. There are numerous ways we could slice this data--I wish there were a way we could have access to it through a public Tableau instance or something.

 @dsirl: Have you been there? It's 5 minutes from my house and it's overcrowded (at least on the harder climbs and more technical downs).

 @weezyb: you should live somewhere that is flat. Id trade my left nut to live beside a trail network like Park City.
  • + 5
 @rockyflowtbay: He simply doesn't know what he's talking about or what the IMBA standards are for trail system ratings. If you're into XC, a beginner to casual advanced bike park/jumper its one of the better places to be. However you can easily find more than a few trails in the PC area that will make you feeling fuzzy by the end of it regardless of what type of riding or what ability level you are.
  • + 3
 It's also counting total volume, not per capita. According to this, South Florida is one of the top destinations for MTB'ing in North America....except it's not. It's just that they have a large population, thus counting more riders. It needs a per capita figure relative to number of total residents within that region/city/county.
  • + 3
 @canadaka: I appreciate these kinds of updates. Keep it up!
  • + 1
 @canadaka: Perhaps count number of unique rider 'days' - if a region has 1 rider doing at least 1 ride on any given day that's 1 point. Add up the points and score. That should reduce the bias of flatter trail centres tending to get more miles and shuttled trails won't jump to the top if counting vertical metres.
  • + 2
 @Connerv6: Yep, plus, if you get to the parking lot anytime after 7am on the weekends, good luck finding a parking spot.
Corner Canyon is great and a lot, ALOT of time & energy has been put into the trail system but this area is a perfect example of a trail system being "loved to death". It's a multi-use system with bikers, hikers and horsey people as users.
Draper City is going to shit when they see this info, they have been marketing this area as a "MTB destination" for years and have half the money to build a Velodrome on the property.
Cool place to ride but unless you ride early on a weekday, it can be frustrating with the crowds.

 Cool 5h1t posting the query and the conversation.

I've found sometimes that the analyzing and understanding "all that data" you gather is often far more difficult than any process(es) created to gather the information.

I wrote a system a couple of years ago that creates and manages participation lists for surveys for a 150K kid school system. Maintaining consistency and understanding exactly how the various processes affect that data has been a far greater challenge!!! Especially since the requirement came out of no where and I had a month to the finish line. The follow on being that we couldn't accurately predict how all of the then un-knonwn conditions would affect the system.
  • + 0
 @weezyb: Have to agree. 500 miles of dirt sidewalks, 29 miles of other.

 @nonk: There is good riding there for sure. Just a TON of very meh riding. Unlike Oakridge which is also a gold medal town that has almost zero filler riding, just banger after banger.
  • + 1
 @weezyb: I'm with you. But, to be fair, the IMBA rating is as a Ride Center, right? My understanding is that those criteria have more to do with the supporting infrastructure (trailhead kiosks, water, toilets, signage, accommodations, etc., etc.) and less to do with the 'radness' of the trails.

 @scary1: you say that but there are over 400 rides logged on Trailforks in Phoenix for July. And based on some trail studies our data only captures around 5% of total riders. So people are definitely riding Phoenix in July.

 It's monsoon season though. You can squeeze in a few decent rides here and there. Last week's ride was at 88 around 6 PM - not too bad with a breeze in the shade.

 Yea it's pretty brutal, even are super early starts have things cooking off at 90 degrees. You do get use to it though if your local and there really is a surprising amount of people that ride. Best part is when we get the occasional cool day and you just feel unstoppable on the trails which is the best feeling ever.
  • + 2
 @canadaka: "So people are definitely riding Phoenix in July."
A lot of mountain bikers live there, and they all ride at night or early morning (I lived there). No one is traveling to Phoenix to ride in the summer though; it is not a summer riding "destination".
  • + 6
 After living here a while, you just get over it and ride. If it's under 105, I consider it "not too hot" and I ride, dig, or trail run six days a week all summer, usually around 5 AM. A lot of riders ride at night with lights too. Not trying to brag or pretend it's nice. It's brutal. But I love being outside too much to let the temps shut me down for half the year.

 @canadaka: I have lived in Phoenix all of my life. 118 degrees on the trails hasn't stopped me yet, just drink about a gallon and a half of water before I hit the trails. Although, part of the fun in riding in the heat is you pretty much have the trails to yourself!

 Trailforks is seriously awesome. Beautiful graphics, trustworthy content, great integration into a lot of PB articles, the ability for useres to create trails, and even Strava integration to seamlessly mark the trails you have ridden. Keep it up guys! (Now if only there was a Pinkbike app...)

 Holy crap yes! I'm from Utah and I flat out avoid Draper/Corner canyon because of the crowds. And this last weekend I rode in Park city and it was the same story. There are a lot of great things happening with the growth of our sport but when you have to share the trails with that many people it starts to not be as fun. I admit that I am kind of selfish that way and like that mountain biking gets you away from people...

 Will I get downvoted here for saying that pretty much all the Draper trails kinda suck? Jacobs Ladder is the only decent one, and its not a top 10 for Utah. @scott-townes You'll back me up, right?
  • + 2
 Jacobs and now levitate, but Levi is a jump trail. I like them a lot, but I ride them mostly out of convince. They're super awesome beginner trails for folks like my wife who don't take MTB super serious. They are crowded though. Park city is awesome and it's got a sweet mix of stuff. Gotta get up early and start riding at the crack of dawn to beat that rush. Hard to beat the cooler temps of PC this time of year. I like riding eagle mountain. Flintstone is awesome and it's like a ghost town out there.
  • + 4
 hamnswiss -> don't be a noob.

Lotsa people worked their asses off to build a super accessible sweet trail network for all levels of riding.

It's an awesome resource for local riders especially when the higher elevation tails are covered in snow.

It's not alpine singletrack or the Canyons bike park or a destination out-of-towners need to hit, but it's a growing and super accessible network for thousands that want to fit in a quick spin before or after work without having to drive up the canyon or over to park city.
  • + 1
 @UtahBikeMike: I actually don't like levitate that much. It gets so much traffic that its completely blown out. I htink the Road to Arcylon is better, but as @WasatchEnduro said its higher elevation and can't be ridden as early in the spring. I actually do get up to ride at 6am everyday- I rode Payson this morning. Hobble Creek and Payson Canyon have some hidden gems of trails, if you can get a local to show you where they are (you won't find them on trailforks).

 @hamncheez:

The fact that it's blown out and rough keeps all the joeys off it after they ride it once. It'll be better next year after they touch it up and the soil packs in. It's still good for being a brand new trail.

 @canadaka: looking at the map in general it appears that population density + mountains = more rides. that to me is pretty boring common sense information but compare that data against population density and you get to see where mountain biking is a living breathing part of the community rather than just telling us what we already know.

 I was gonna say this. The most riding is going to occur where the most people live. Moab for example has a population of 5,000 roughly. Colorado springs has a population of 400,000+.

  • + 1
 @canadaka: As a GIS geek I've been enjoying trailforks and the data/stats it provides. I realise it started in North America, and most of the users are there, but it would be good if it was a less North American centered.

For example this page:
www.trailforks.com/trails/all/top

It shows all the top trails in the world (great), but yet they are still all in USA/Canada when you look at rating/ridden (due to the user base of trailforks). With all the filters on the right hand side, could you please add in a filter for 'country'.

It would be useful if your visiting a country, say I was planning a trip to NZ, I could select NZ and see the most popular trails in that country.

 @TrevorPage: You can do this, visit the trails tab for the NZ region page. Then sort the page by "global ranking".
