Summer School is a segment of the Keweenaw Point Trail, located within the East Bluff Bike Park. The trail runs east from its intersection with the East Bluff driveway, generally following the grade of an unnamed stream for ~1 mile. At its eastern hub, it intersects with both Magic Carpet climbing trail to East Bluff Summit and with KPT: Owleyes trail to connect to the exising "Phase 2" segment of the Keweenaw Point Trail.

The majestic woods, streamside views and amazing rock work along the trail give it a primeval character. Low average grade make riding this trail in the climbing direction a pleasant experience. However, if you're riding in the descending direction you might not notice the scenery, as you'll be distracted by flowy berms, techincal exposed rocks and perfectly placed side hits.

A prominent feature on this trail is known as the "Principals Office", is an optional large cascading rock garden line, which allows a rider to 'cheat' around a large S-berm.

Disclaimer

No motorized vehicels on the main East Bluff driveway.
