High Point

A moderate to advanced 11ish mile loop in Galbraith Gap/Rothrock State forest. Gives a taste of some of the best trails in the area, particular in the southern half of Rothrock. These trails are significantly less "technical" and more flowy than those near Tussey. There are still plenty of tech sections though too so don't be completely fooled Most climbs are easy, utilizing the roads while saving the downhills for the fun and scenic singletrack.

Despite a lot of rain lately, the trail was in perfect condition. We removed a few branches that had fallen due to the wind from the last storm. One tree down that someone with more skills and a healthy bike repair budget could make it over. Otherwise all good!

By the way, looking at the map of this segment, I think the straight section is the old straight down drop which is closed now
