High Point

Middle option for climbing and descending. Other shorter options exist as well as alternate descents through the lower sections of the trail system.

A paved road climb with 1000ft of elevation gain over about 3.5 miles. Then a roughly 3.5-mile descent back to the parking lot via Highballer and Springboard.

 Yes, a slog to the top, but what a blast. Grinning ear to ear the whole way down. Mud in my teeth!
