High Point

The Flagstaff classic. The climb up Elden Lookout Road start as pavement but quickly transitions into dirt. You will gain 1700ft of elevation in just over 4 miles. The view at the top is incredible; you'll want to have a snack and take it all in. From here it is mostly descending with one short ass kicker in the middle. Enjoy!
