  • Moderate/Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 3.83 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,200 ft
  • Pace: 10-15 minute miles

Meeting Location: High Point trailhead in the large parking lot. Please note that the Discover pass is required here (though, if you're still waiting for yours to come in the mail, I believe you might be able to park down off the road and jog up to the parking lot).

I'll be driving a red hatchback (Chevy Sonic) with a black rack.

Departure Objective: shoes and battlefaces on, talk accomplished, and feet to trail by 7:00.

Goals:

  1. - Build community and enjoy getting outside
  2. - On the trail for 60 minutes (we won't have a distance goal, but a time. We'll cater our trail choices based on the speed folks are running at in an effort to get us back by 8:00)
  3. - Be safe'ish

PACE:

I'm expecting uphill paces to range between 11-15 minutes, with downhill at a minute or two less.

TERRAIN:

The Tiger Mountain Lowlands are an excellent mix of everything from a few gravel roads to single track and heavily wooded areas to a few cleared trails near the power/gas lines. Expect elevation gains varying from 500-1000 feet elevation gain depending on the distance/pace group you choose. Expect a lovely evening with at least a stop or two to check out the evening's sights.
