High Point

Lower option for climbing and descending. Start by going to the left of the main gate at the parking lot onto the gravel entrance of Dutchman. Stay left and climb Dutchman all the way to the top, then traverse across a gravel forest road to the top of Springboard, and back down to the bottom.

Beginners can cut this loop down even more by riding up the lower section of Dutchman and down the lower section of Springboard.
