High Point

This is a variation on "Pass to Pints" and takes you from one of the highest trailheads in South Lake to the Genoa Bar. Most people start at the Andria / North Benjamin Parking Lot but this gives you a little extra downhill for not much extra work uphill (other than a steep short climb at the start). The finish goes down Genoa Canyon which adds an extra 3+ miles and about 45 minutes than the more direct standard finish. But it's worth it as you end up on some great exposed singletrack and pop out right at the Genoa Bar.
