Description

Highpoint is part of the Watershed Crest Trail. The ride up is steady and unrelenting (8% average) but there are benches placed at some of the viewpoints. And what a view! Lake Pend Oreille and the Pend Oreille River, Baldy Mountain and the surrounding Selkirk Mountains are all visible from this trail.

But the downhill portion makes it all more than worthwhile. Awesome banked turns await you at the switchbacks as well as a few small jumps. I wish I could give this a 6 star rating!
