My favourite would be the Colville Connection in Coromandel, New Zealand. I'm not much of a down-hiller, more into XC, so it suits me good, but there is a nice downhill about 1/2 way through. Check it out: http://www.colvilleconnection.co.nz/ I haven't told the missus yet that that's what we're going to do for our honeymoon! :D

All of my favorite local trails are wayyyy too illegal for me to post the locations, i'd be happy to put up some pic though. As you guys probably know it's hard to get how steep something is by taking a photo, and don't let this photo fool you, this section of the trail is steeeeeeeep.


that trail is called stinkfist aka hairball

Of course one of my favorite spots overall is downieville. 17 miles of bliss

That's why I like to start my trips uphill and go until I'm almost spent and then coast all the way back.
