High Society is a trail that descends steeply from the Flank trail, offering some great views. The trail could be considered a double-black, but is more accurately rated a hard black. Several rooty and rocky drops line the route along with rockfaces, including High Society's signature. High Society is a great trail with great views.

Access Info

The trail descends off the Flank trail in between Working Class and [L=https://www.trailforks.com/trails/legalize-it/Legalize It[/L]. There are a couple of options for accessing the Flank: either ride up the normal entrance from Function or 21 Mile Creek, or more directly via Stonebridge Drive. For the latter, ride up Stonebridge Drive and turn left on Stonebridge Place. At the end of this road, follow an access road up a steep climb. At a water tower veer right onto single track and climb relentlessly until to hit the Flank trail.

      Pretty much perfect. Grippy dirt, rocks are dry. Little bit of pine needles on some rocks that add some spices.

       Not really a fan of this Trail it has some good Rock roll sections but really lacks any type of flow. I would pick Pure Vida over this Trail every time.

       A very challenging trail with some wicked rock roll sections including “The Signature” roll which is best described as three levels of pucker! Not a ton of flow given the amount of climbing required to access but I’m looking forward to riding the sister trails in this area for comparison.

       If you are looking for a steady gnarly descent, this IS NOT your trail. The techy bits don't make up for all the traversing and climbing. Legalize it is a far better option. you could ride this trail when there's nothing left to ride, maybe. Pura Vida and Moose Knuckles are your best choice on that side of the Valley.
