High Point

I created this loop as a semi-epic after hours or Fall weekday ride to enable great XC training climb and finishes with a downhill jump line.

This is a great loop that provides a lot of easy and gradual uphill to start out and get you warmed up. Once you connect up to Cross Mountain the climbing and skills involved increase until you reach the highest point on the Expresso Trail. From there it is a rip roaring descent. My absolute favorite trail in the area is Valhalla, so I chose that as the downhill, but once to the resort, you can choose any downhill trail you want, as they will all put you right back where you started.

#downhill, #MTB First time riding this trail and came into this turn wrong after a jump. Still a sketchy turn. Glad it didn't end my day. :-)
