Catching a ride to the top of a gnarly singletrack descent is tough to beat! If you want to save your legs and instead focus on the downhill enduro-style shredding, look no further than this list of recommended shuttle runs. Featured here are 10 of the very best mountain bike shuttles spread across the western United States.

While you’ve undoubtedly heard of epics like The Whole Enchilada and the Downieville Downhill, perhaps others like the Osberg Ridgeline Epic or O'Leary Mountain are new to you. While selecting the trails for this list, we focused on shuttle runs that offer a commercial shuttle option to assist you in your pursuit of singletrack bliss. There may be one or two exceptions, but in general, you should be able to book a spot on a shuttle and get whisked to the top of the nearest mountain for just a few dollars. Whichever trail(s) you choose, you’re guaranteed a fantastic rip on some of the best singletrack in the world!
