High Point

This is an expert course requiring high riding ability and high fitness especially because of Alta being in the loop. Hike a bike in sections can even the playing field for those not as skilled in technical sections but you will not be able to ride Alta entirely regardless of skillset. Nevertheless, great adventure route that's on the quieter end of South Mountain, less people to spoil your ride.

This is a multi-directional trail. Almost an equal amount of riders ride in the uphill direction. There's plenty of HAB in either direction, that's why it's rated as black. reporter
