High Point

Despite the remote (for the South Hills) start point, this is a good quick lap that provides a more interesting ride than loops of comparable length at lower elevations. Rather than a sustained climb, there are a few punchy climbs with rock outcrops here and there. This is a great loop for an older dog. This also makes a good warm-up before descending Entertainment Trail after a Trail Rider shuttle to Arrowroot Drive.
