This route follows High Drive up about a mile to the Palmer Trail singletrack on the right side
of the road. The Palmer Trail climbs about 2 miles from here through the woods on some of
the smoothest singletrack in town. At the top there's a 3-way intersection; take the right
fork if you want to make this a loop w/ section 16 (and you're in the mood for some washed
out, technical as gank singletrack). Otherwise take the left fork up a little farther for
awesome views of Garden of the Gods. Turn around once the trail starts getting steep and
gravel strewn. From here it's a 3+ mile descent back down the trail you climbed.
