High Point

Note can be done both directions, but most commonly done clockwise.

A great loop climbing from camp to Sherman Pass, then on to Jungle Hill for a great descent back to camp.

Modifications to the route can be:
- Add on the short climb to the Columbia look out site and back
- At the Jungle hill intersection, continue on for a short out and back on the Crest between the Jungle Hill and Wapaloosie intersections. This piece stays high and has great views and wildflowers. It's a gentle climb northbound and a fun descent southbound.
- If aerobically challenged, cut the Sherman Tie climb out by starting the ride at Sherman Pass.

 There are hundreds (seriously, hundreds) of downed trees on this loop. Steer clear until there is a clean up!
