High Point

Start at the 'Yellow Gate', just past the cattleguard you will see the entranceway. Gate is recessed back a bit. Please park so the rancher (Mike S.) across the street can turn a cattle trailer into his driveway.

Start climbing the gravel road past the gate. Make the slight left and keep straight until the 90 corner. You will see the single track at that corner and follow it south. There is the DH line coming into you at this point with some jumps.
There are orange arrows guiding your the majority of this first 'climb' to the summit. Once at the DQ table (old table from a Dairy Queen), head East down to the UP and keep on this path. Follow until the summit. You will get to an intersection at some point just before a hydro line (you passed under it once across some 2-track), but keep straight. Once at the summit, turn back down that trail and head for the fence, instead of turning the way you came up, keep straight for that small wooden feature. Follow this trail the whole way (1.3km) until you come up to a 'stump jump' where the trail splits. Take the left and follow back to the jumps at your start.
Repeat the first climb but instead of heading up at the DQ table, keep south and stick to the major line all the way looping the hill.

Enjoy

When in doubt, Power It Out!
