High Point

Leaves from Powderface parking lot on the NW corner of the lot. Head up Prairie creek and take the first intersection to the north. This is a short loop but very rewarding with a decent ascent and a really fun descent with challenging rock drops and single track back to the base of the valley. Best ridden clockwise
