High Point

This route avoids trails that are the most rain sensitive and subject to rutting and erosion when wet.

You'll be taken up onto a plateau where trails drain better, and have fewer muck sections.

Start in the Chalet parking lot and head out following the gravel road (ride out the way you drove in). Turn left onto High Lake Trail just a little past the Welcome Centre.

Follow until you reach a steep climb. Just past the half-way point up climb is a wide cut in the grass, on an angle up the ski hill. Avoid the first grass cut that is perpendicular to the Service Trail.

The angled grass cut delivers you to the entry for No Limits. Ride No Limits to the Shack drop (red shack at end of rock-face descent). Whether you take the steep drop to the left of the shack or the B-line to the right, you'll do a u-turn to your right avoiding completing the descent onto the softer dirt-berm section. The u-turn puts you onto Dark Zone, where you'll continue on Five of Diamond Route as usual.

When exiting Hosta LaVista, either head back up the grass cut to No Limits for another loop, or head back to the chalet the way you came in.
