High Point

A classic climb and descent to give you the most bang for your buck in the Mice. Suitable for intermediate skill levels, but due to the length and vertical gain a bit more demanding on the fitness side. Most of the climb is steady and not too steep, however a few pitches are tough. The descent has occasional short technical challenges but is mostly low angle, wide, and smooth.

As with any ride in the Mice zone, be sure to bring a flat repair kit

Trail Sidewinder
Sidewinder was originally only from Rusty Muffler up to Cow's End. The rest of the trail is called Tripod as this was the original trail in the area and named that for 20 years. Somehow in the last couple of years the it has grown to incorporate Tripod climb up to the Tripod Junction. Too late now but this is the truth, the real truth and nothing but the truth. TOPSOG

Trail Sidewinder
It's too late now, but Sidewinder was originally just from Rusty Muffler to above the Rusty Grate to the Junction with Tripod. Tripod was the original trail up to, well, to the Tripod lookout. Everything else came after that. Somehow this was changed in the last couple of years so that Tripod only starts at the junction with Rainbow.
