High Point

5-8 hour loop through the mountains. Bring plenty of water and food. You can bail after the doing the first two bypasses (after coming down Bell), which will be close to the cars. You can also bail before or after climbing and descending Sunrise, which will require 5-7 miles of road riding to get back to start. Be mindful of other trail users on lost dog and other trails as it can be busy.

Extreme Climbing. For Pros Only. You will get fined $200 if a service person catches you. Worth It! ;)

There was an orange bucket and pick axe at the start of the trail. Seems like they did some clean up. Looks like they added/maintained some shallow drainage dips along the trail.
