High Point

This ride starts at the traffic circle on Rock Hurst Blvd. from there hit the trailhead and shoot for the right which will drop you down Loose Moose Downhill. From there enjoy your descent as it is short lived. You will then head up the mellow but steep climb of South Hill enjoy the punchy climbs and hang a right on The Pinch what the trail as it likes to change a bit every day. Follow it down to Rockhurst Descent to Stone Hill Trail and start the grind. Instead of taking the left to the neighborhood up top keep going straight to Angry Squirrel which is a love-hate relationship of a trail and pure hell on wheels. Follow this rocky challenging mess all the way down the hill until you meet Mr. Goates follow it to the right until you run into Puplit Rock to Lame Duck Connector and start your next serious grind. Once at the top hang a left on the main Pulpit Rock Trail and catch your breath. Hang a right on Knuckle Grinder and turn right on Knuckle Dragger be careful picking your line as the consequences could be bad if you go OTB here. Follow the trail through until you hit the junction of North Foothill Trail. Follow this trials flowy pop-py line all the way back to the beginning of Mr. Goates. Follow Mr. Goates to the base of Lame duck and enjoy a nice mellow climb back to the start point. You are done and probably need to get your derailleur hangar adjusted, but wasn't it fun?
