High Point

Outer loop that starts on top of Racoon Mountain from the Laurel Point picnic / parking area. Can be completed in either direction, but most prefer clockwise (Down High Voltage and up Live Wire). Easy to mix in a stop in the "Chunky" freeride area and then jump back on to finish out the loop
