High Point

Park at the Centennial trailhead; ride up Monte Christo Road; down Techno Grind; down North Star; down Milky Way; then up Green Door / Roger's / Cemetery / Happy Valley. From the top of Happy Valley ride west through town, back up to the Centennial trailhead via Centre Star Gulch.

This loop is the most intermediate-friendly route to ride down from the top of KC. Continuing up to the top of KC from the end of Techno Grind, and retracing your steps back to the end of Techno Grind before descending North Star adds a bit more to the ride, and the great view from the top of KC.
