High Point

This ride utilizes old jeep and ATV trails to reach a beautiful and remote region of granite boulders and spires. Expect deep sand, rock gardens, a long push up the steep middle section, and a challenging downhill on the way back. The route ends on a ridge overlooking the Sweeny Cr/Ten Mile valley.
The trail has been slightly re-routed in a few places due to fallen trees (which will continue to be a problem for a while), but the route is fairly obvious.

An easier way to the summit is to ride up Blue Cloud Troad. Bear right at the two intersections about half way up.
