At the moment The Summit is only open to special programs, events and the New River Bicycle Union. See http://www.summitbsa.org/ for more information on Scouting programs.

See http://www.newriverbicycleunion.org for more info on the NRBU club access.

This recommended route is for a more-competent rider that can handle their bike on flowy trail with features. This ride offers some technical elements by taking Trail 9 into Trail 13. Less than a half mile down Trail 13, there will be the trailhead for Trail 17 on the right. It will cross Valley Loop road and climb close to the ridge top. Just before the top of the ridge, take a right on Trail 12. After a multiple descents and few climbs, it will merge into the descent of Trail 16, arriving back at Low Gear.
