3.1 Miles Singletrack Type 950’ Ascent -11’ Descent 6,757’ Low 7,696’ High
This trail starts at parking area near the intersection of Bluffs Drive and Bellyache Rd. Ride up the hill and look for the free gate. Instead of following the road to the right, proceed around the green gate and down the doubletrack. for 0.15 miles. Turn right onto the Boneyard Trail.

The route climbs steadily for 1.45 miles and includes several turns and two major drainage crossings. This section of trail exits in the open for a brief moment before ducking back into the sage and pinion-juniper trees for another 0.74 miles. The trail levels out for awhile and travels through an open sagebrush meadow with 360 degree views.

The final singletrack section of The Boneyard climbs again around a rock knoll before intersecting a doubletrack. This section levels out when it reaches Bellyache Road.

Return Options: From here you can turn around and ride back down Boneyard, turn right and ride down Bellyache Rd to the start, or turn left on Bellyache Rd to access the Pool and Ice Rink Trail.
