High Point

This is a good intermediate intro ride for the lower Pattee Canyon. It's not super long on mileage, but the climb is stiff, so beware. It's also lollipop shaped, so you'll use some of the same trails climbing and descending. Sections of the climb are tough (especially the lower Mo Z trail), but if you stick with it the climb gets easier as you go up. The loop at the end of the route takes you to the top of Chopsticks for a super fun, fast, and loose descent back down. The final descent on the bermed out Mo Z Trail is also a blast with good views to boot. This is a heavily used multi-use trail area, so be respectful of other users.
