Description

If you are looking to do some serious climbing with a reward at the end, "Monument" is for you. This is the highest point on the mountain and the trial is open to both hikers and bikers. It is mostly a dual track fire road, also used by maintenance vehicles, but you are surrounded by 360-degree views once you reach the upper portion of the mountain/trail.

Difficulty

Moderate

Mostly stable trail tread with some variability, with unavoidable obstacles 8in/20cm tall or less. Other obstacles such as rock gullies and steep sections may exist. Ideal for lower intermediate riders.
