High Point

This "shuttle" requires a decent amount of climbing, but it is so worth it. Warm the legs up on Birch Main, gear up at the top of Crown Royal, and let it fly all the way down Crown Point. The Upper Switchback offers a few more cheap thrills, then it's doubletrack cruising down the Railgrade into Warfield.
