High Point

A decent loop from Polhill to the Windmill and back. Good climb to start, nice ups and downs in the mid-section, then some solid downhill to finish. Oh, and stellar views.

- Park up on Aro Street at the bottom of Polhill
- Ride along Aro Street then up Holloway Road until you see an entry to Clinical
- Climb up Clinical
- When you reach the swing park, head up toward the fence line
- Turn left onto Highbury Fling
- At the end, turn right up Sawmill, then follow the fence line along
- Drop into Windmill and follow it around (ignore a shorter loop to Car Parts and a longer track to Red Rocks)
- Admire the views from the wind turbine and take a breather
- Head down Car Parts
- At the end, retrace your steps along the fen cline and down Sawmill
- Drop into Transient and follow it until you hit the 4WD track
- Take Serendipity back down to Aro Street
