High Point

Relatively short loop through a variety of terrain. Start off at the Tyler's trailhead parking lot on Conkin rd. Head north on catch and release which has some technical sections, but mostly flowy flats. When you get to the storm king intersection take that west and start the climb. You'll climb for a few miiles and then hit a pretty short downhill section where you'll come to an intersection in a little valley. Hang a left and head up Lower Tiddlywinks for a short stretch then hang a left on Steve Larson's trail. It's pretty flat in the section for a few miles. When you hit Tyler's hang another left for a long downhill section with bumps throughout back to the parking lot.

I rode this trail both directions, and preferred riding Larsen’s south to north.
