    i can't handle the switchbacks to the top, I never make it. Is there an easier way to get to the top from damn lake by the golf course?

    Keep trying! If it is fitness, it will come. If it is a tech issue, someone will give pointers (ie ride the turn a bit faster than the straight climb, and look where you want to go, not at the turn)

    Those are the lowest and highest points in the park (400'+ difference). There is no easy way. However, Dark Forest is the easiest climb for the up from white and Hawk or Space Mt are the easiest climbs to the lookout from the middle of the mountain.

    I was there a few weeks ago, it's all about fitness where youre referring to, not so much tech

    But... but... I've been trying for 2 yrs! lol
    Truth be told... if there is a scale for fitness from 0-10... I actually started at -5!
    I think I am at 0 now so there have been improvements. :)

    @roc For me to get to the peak, Circleswitch to Hawk, I have to take 2 breaks so that I won't throw up a lung and my legs won't fall off.
    Most likely, you are in better shape than I am. :thumbsup:
