High Point

A short loop starting in Coleman that takes in a variety of interesting single-track of easy to intermediate technical difficulty, without a lot of climbing. The highlights are the lower half of NRA along the top of a rocky ridge, the climb up Toadstool leading to the top of Sooper Trooper, the flowy upper half of Sooper Trooper through loamy old forest and solid berms with a few optional TTFs including gaps, jumps, and bridges, then east on the Pipeline for a rip down Whistling Post.

Note: Start at the trailhead on the east side of the Green Mountain campground property in Coleman, On the climb, the entrance to the single-track 150m past the cattle-guard on York Creek Road is easy to miss.

      Don’t waste your time taking this trail! Stick to School of Rock. It is overgrown, not flown and zero fun.
