High Point

Treat yourself to the Swansea Epic. A grunt of a climb will take you up the west slope of Mt. Swansea, gradually contouring north until you emerge at the upper parking lot. One final climb takes you to the south summit, where your reward awaits: Epic views, and an even more epic descent.

Flow, berms, rollers, and jumps, along South Park and Hula Girl, ending with a bit of tech through Meat Grinder. Make sure to stop and enjoy the views - they're some of the best around!
