  3. Where are you in Alabama? As I guess you've already discovered, there's not much of a culture of
    technical riding around here. Oak Mt is a race track (a very fun one, but not exactly tricky).

    The steepest stuff I've found in the greater B'ham area are some the side loops and spurs off the
    dirt bike trails behind the stadium in Hoover - they connect all the way back to Helena. Most of
    what's back there you could clean in a Buick, but there are a couple of very steep drop/roll-offs to
    be found if you're willing to poke around for a while.

    Cheers,

    Check out Sorba.org. they have been very busy lately adding on to some already amazing existing
    trails, as well as some new runs. I've had the opportunity to ride a few of them, but no where near
    all of them. Pay heed to the trail closures due to hunting season. I'd recommend Bull mountain for
    some pretty good technical riding. But there are tons of others...

    I'm from Helena. Do you know where in Helena the motorcycle tracks connect? I've been to the Hoover
    track but not with a bike.

    You can connect up by taking Elvira Rd (off Morgan Rd). Where Elvira hits the train tracks,
    you're in.

    I'm sure there are other points where it connects with roads, but I don't know what they're called
    since I always ride in from the end of Stadium Trace in Trace Crossings.

    Do you ever ride the Cahaba River Wildlife Management Area? Is there any singletrack in there?

    Thanks. I've never ridden there. The only place i've really ridden is oak mountain on their trails
    and BMX tracks.
