The High Rim Trail is a multi-use trail that can be used to access many of the mountain biking trails in Kal Park.
As you move further up the trail it gets skinnier and becomes singletrack, but remains relatively straight and uninteresting. Consider using Stone Free and Stone Free Again as a more interesting climb that takes you to the same place.
