This trail was planned to be built by NEFA (North East Freeride Association), but the project was never completed. This trail does not exist.

The High Voltage Trail at Chopwell is a severe grade trail created by local volunteer trail-building group, to complement the red grade Powerline trail. Running alongside the Powerline trail, it is suitable only for expert riders used to prolonged effort, riding quality off-road mountain bikes. It should take you about 20 minutes to complete.
