High Point

I rode every single trail out there and if I was to go back this would be my ultimate fun loop. I might even just do multiple laps of this until I was too tired to pedal back up to the top. The climb really is an easy climb, with mostly a smooth gradual gradient. As you near the top there are a couple of more difficult sections to climb, but mostly just for some change in terrain. The highest downhill section is my favorite with large berms that will throw you through some big rock sections with good speed all the way down. The final down hill trail is not really an expert trail, but has a few tricky sections, but mostly fast berms and quick transitions through a dry hollow.

Overgrown, I wish I had long socks and long sleeves from all of the grasses and such.
