High Point

This route puts you through the best descents in Blackstrap, including all the common descents off the main summit. You can modify this route by lapping Bustamove a few times at the beginning, or by doing fewer routes off the main summit -- many will climb the the final summit and just ride Raven down to the River trail back to the car, or just ride Rocky Ridge/NEMBA trail to Bobcat to the car. If you're lapping the Red Line/Saw Whet/Raven/Rocky Ridge section, it's quicker climbing up Green Line back to the summit from Red Line/Saw Whet, although this is the old beat-up rooty AF climbing trail and way more of a slog than the Up machine-built climbing trail.

However you do it, the final treat is riding back to the field and lapping Flow Creek once or several time. I must enjoy Flow Creek riding from above the trail entrance, by the sand pit, as there's a few sneaker jibs to do and you carry way more speed into Flow Creek. Enjoy

Lower half is still extremely wet, even with the warm temps recently. Would avoid anything below the intersection with Rocky Ridge
