Start line!
Mar 8, 2016 near Spearfish, SD
Crow Peak Summit
Aug 20, 2015 near North S…, SD
From Trailhead at Sunset
Aug 14, 2019 near Fort Pi…, SD
One of the fun features characteristic of Bone Collector
Aug 15, 2015 near Rapid City, SD
Middle 1/3 of trail fun riding with frequent rock/root outcroppings to keep you on your toes.
Nov 25, 2017 near North S…, SD
Top 1/3 of trail technically challenging.  This resulted in a lot of hike-a-bike for this mediocre rider on the way up.  But the fun descent was well worth the effort.
Nov 25, 2017 near North S…, SD
Bottom 1/3 of trail not-so-rocky and more vegetation.
Nov 25, 2017 near North S…, SD
Crossing scree field (trail switchbacks across this field a couple times)
