Summit Trail follows an old logging roadbed. It makes for a nice rolling climb and is one of the best ways to get to the top of the mountain quickly. Is is also a pretty fun high speed downhill run (should you get bored of all of Hornby's single track descents). The time to beat from the top to the old gravel pit clearing is 3:56.
