High Point

Flowy green singletrack down Midline and Jurassic leads to a fairly easy climb up the slickrock of Baby Steps. The route then follows the top of the ridge along UFO and Alaska with great views. Finally descent Alaska and Homer to return to the trailhead.

Definitely best done anti-clockwise. There is an alternative start at the southern trailhead.
