High Point

One of the most fun ups and downs in the valley. Shouldn’t take much more than 1.5 hours, but it will feel like you did a lot more, all sorts of terrain, switchbacks, little steeps to challenge you on the up, a couple of steeper corners on the downs, but really fun rolling terrain and a great view form the top. Be respectful to any cows you encounter.
