High Point

A loop taking in the new trails over on the Western side of HVAP.

Includes the following highlights: 500 Above (a 7km downhill which you have to earn!), Devine and Skyfall.

Note it's a good hour to cruise out and up to the start of 500 Above.

Plenty of options to shorten the ride if your legs are buggered after getting up to 500 Above. I suggest dropping the loop down to Devine and back up so you can do Skyfall (a must do trail at HVAP) if you are already getting tired at that point. You can then also drop out Gully at the end and just cruise the fire road home.

It may be tempting to drop out some of the other singletrack trails to shortcut but you will pay with very steep, soft and loose fire road climbs that sap the legs (some options will likely have you walking). Better to go further and faster with less cost... YMMV
