High Point

Nice long climb with some rewarding downhill to get back. Physically challenging climb, but very doable for fit individuals or those building up to it. Almost all trails are blue single-track, keeping the use of double-tracks to a minimum.

Two large trees down and one large leaner on section between Lost Lake Connector and Jawbone. The section closest to Lost Lake Connector is a pretty big mess this year with a massive amount of water erosion.

Fairlane has now dried out. There are a couple wet patches here and there, but overall it's dry. The East end of the trail heading down towards Luxmoore is very eroded after the high volume of water that has come down over the past two years.
