“Steady climbing singletrack with great views.”— Leslie Kehmeier
From the parking area on Bellyache Rd, ride up the doubletrack hill and look for the green gate at a bend in the road. Instead of following the road to the right, proceed around the green gate and down the doubletrack for 0.15 miles. After riding through a drainage, look to your right for the signs for the Boneyard Trail.
The route climbs steadily for 1.45 miles and includes several switchback turns and two major drainage crossings. This section of trail exits into the open for a brief moment before ducking back into the sage and pinyon-juniper trees for another 0.74 miles. After this, the trail levels out for awhile and travels through an open sagebrush meadow with 360 degree views and plenty of small banked turns.
The final singletrack section of The Boneyard climbs again around a technical rocky 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 cruise down Bellyache Rd to the start, or turn left on Bellyache Rd to access Redneck Ridge, Pool and Ice Rink, or Dirt Surfer.
As a descent, The Boneyard is a phenomenal trail that utilizes great flow in its upper sections and tight, techy switchback riding near the bottom. Keep your eyes peeled for hikers coming up the trail, and always be sure to be courteous!
