The route. Starting from the main parking lot a top of North Cheyenne Canyon, pedal up to the top of High Drive. Then pick up the trail at the SE corner of the pullout and continue climbing on the upper portion to Mays Peak. There are a few short sections that will likely require some hike-a-bike along the way. Once on top, take a break to recover from the climb and enjoy the spectacular views. When ready, point your knobbies downhill and let it rip for a fast 1.1 mi downhill run. Once back on Gold Camp Road, it is a short easy pedal from Tunnel #2 back to the main parking lot. The entire route is 3.4 mi long.
