High Point

One of our favorites from the shop. You head out 276 then turn on to 477 until you start heading up Clawhammer rd and then turn right on to Maxwell cove road. At the fire ring turn right on to black mountain trail once over hickory knob you have one sweet downhill till you get back to black mountain trail head. Turn left onto 276 and head back to Sycamore Cycles!!!
