High Point

A full climb and descent route with an optional change to ride Dutchman in the lower 1/2 to 1/3, which gets you more of a classic cross-country singletrack feel at the end.

See the Whistlepunk to Springboard Loop for comparison.

A mix of paved and gravel road climb all the way up to the top of the trail system (as of the 2015 season) with 1500ft of elevation gain over about 4.5 miles. Be sure to watch at the 2 mile point to turn off the paved road onto gravel on the right hand side, then stay left at the first split. After that just stay on the road and look for the trails to start on the left hand side.

It is a roughly 5-mile descent back to the parking lot via Whistlepunk, Sexy Tree, Highballer, and Springboard.

      Alsea Falls Bike Park - trying to catch the guy in front of me and carried so much speed into the banked corner that the back end slid out.
