High Point

A great "BCXC" type of ride. The climbing trail has plenty of descents,until you get to Tamarac. Then it's a harsh grunt up to a bit of a descent off the end of Tamarac, hooking into Upper Whiskey. Another harsh grunt up Whiskey on the Rocks to the top, and then it's all down to the Railgrade.
