High Point

A great trail with a huge selection of features. A technical trail in the wet, but pretty fast in the dry.
Has a few variations on the way down.
Keep an eye open for the wall ride at the very start of the trail head.

A few sections have to be walked, due to excessive water.

Nice area - great view. The upper part is a lot of rocks and roots, and not very good flow, but the lower part is very nice. Many height meters up to the start, but a great adventure
