Hilltop is a fun little trail. Mild XC at the beginning but then on the backside the fun picks up. Almost all downhill from there with some fun little booters thrown in. Then finish at Grassy Creek Falls turn left up the gravel road and a short easy climb back up to the top and ride it again, and again. Good fun with almost no climb penalty.

       These pictures of big jumps are of the wrong trail. These are pictures of Hilltop Bike Park.
