High Point

A mix of ho-hum double track old roads, and sweet, beautifully made single track. Lots of ups and downs, none of which are particulary steep, or sustained. While it is definitely a Green for the fact that it is all very smooth and generally free of technical features, it is not a beginner trail as there is significant climbing involved. Trailforks might be telling you something like 1000m of total ascending, but several different models of Garmins, all with barometric altimeters, measured total ascent at 600m.
