A long and flowy traverse contouring from the summit launch to just below the B12 start point. A true classic, Summit makes for an excellent run for anyone unsure about taking on the challenging downhill descents that otherwise brand the mountain.
Start from the Mt 7 summit launch below the memorial site. There are a few quick corners before dropping below an old cabin and into a fast sidehill decent. Note, there is an alternate entrance starting right out of the parking lot at the cabin.
After the major switchback just past the cabin, you reach your first junction. Branch right to stay on Summit (Moonshine continues on the left). Continuing down you’ll pass the lefthand entrance onto 10K. Enjoy great views throughout the trail, particularly from the launch site. Be sure to watch for steep exposure as the trail flows across several steep sidehills.
Finish with a section of double track jeep road before intersecting the Bowle-Evans Forest Service Road (keep an eye open for vehicle traffic). From here you can continue to B12 by pedalling up the road for a hundred meters, or alternatively you can head down the road to the 6K or 5K trails.

|Multiple trees down in one section but easy to get around or under them. The rest was in good shape.|
