High Point

Utilize the town gondola as your start/finish and begin a nice loop through the high alpine trails. There's a bit of climbing early in the ride, but near mile 4.5 the downhill fun begins as the route tops out just over 11k. Some trail junctions are signed, some are not. Use a GPS or have the Trailforks app handy. Route is mostly singletrack with a few pavement connections.
