High Point

A classic XC / Trail ride in Flagstaff. Nothing too challenging but lots of fun and many great view. The milage can be deceiving; expect the ride to take a bit longer than you might think. The trail network on the south side of Elden is very convoluted and can be hard to navigate if you are unfamiliar so be prepared.
