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.

      Such a nice ride! Worth the drive!!! The trail flows nicely, not difficult at all. If you want to go to the suspended brdige start at sawmill to kent. The ride is funner/less up hill but from here it is still a nice ride/warm up to get your heart just right
