High Point

This route is a fun and technical way to get back to Over The Edge from the high school. Start by descending scorpion. the upper section of scorpion is a technical descent with plenty of rock gardens, tight corners and fast straight sections! Once you pass the pyramid intersection, the trail gets a little steeper and faster. Look for some optional lines that have some fun drops! Once you reach the road, cruise straight down to old post and start the climb. Old Post is a steady grind up a mix of terrain. Plenty of ledges and slabs to challenge all levels of riders. The climb tops out at the skywalker intersection. Stay on Old Post to enjoy a ripping-fast section of singletrack back to shelby drive. From there, just head up shelby - turn right on 89A and head back to OTE.
