High Point

This is my favorite ride / loop in the park. The two main descents (Whole Shebang and Fall Line) are two of the rowdier descents in the parl. It is highly recommended that you're on a trail bike with a more aggressive geo than cross country geo.

The ride starts from the Deer trail parking area and goes up to the ranger station then to the top of wild turkey. Follow the ridge until you come across the entrance to the Whole Shebang. Follow this trail (marked with orange ribbon) till you hit rhododendron at the bottom. Follow rhododendron about 3 hundred yards too the parking lot and ascend the main access road in the park to the top. At the top, hang a left onto red fox and about 100 yards in, hang a left onto fall line trail. Fall line is steeeeeep, rocky, and has the largest drop in the park (8 ft, go around riders right). Fall line ends on deer trail (access road). Follow the river downstream until you reach the asphalt access road and ascend the hill too the deer trail parking area.

      Bench cuts/berms added to the first two turns. There is a tree down after the "carnage corner" attempting to cut tonight.

      Approximately 60 ft long bench was added at the very end of the trail. One tree was cut as well. This bench will allow for the set up to gap the end of trail hole/compression out into rhododendron. Bump was been left but the final kicker has not been built as it's too wet to build a jump.

      half of the trail has been cleared of leaves. Several areas of drainage have been added in various wet spot areas. There will be an addition of a big water bar later in the long down hill area to deal with the large amount of rutting.
