High Point

Park at the trailhead and start up the gravel road. Horrible grind up this road, which eventually turns into double track until you reach the upper trailhead. Once you get all that altitude and tricky traverse through the forest and you get rewarded with a fun and fast descent along the river. Once you cross the river the trail opens up into a very wide path where you can pick fast lines or rocky lips.
