“A challenging climb with great scenery leading to Eagle's best downhill flow trail.”— Nick Wilder
Take some roads through the neighborhood. Very shortly you find yourself at the start of The Boneyard and Bellyache Road. Take that a tiny distance until you branch off to the left on The Boneyard.
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.
Note that you could have cranked up the Bellyache Road and gotten the same place, but singletrack is more fun, right???
Follow this a short ways to a huge viewpoint and popular camping spot. When you're ready to descend, take the singletrack down the steep ridge from the viewpoint at the end of this trail, which will intersect Pool and Ice Rink in a few hundred yards (look out for it on the left).
Pool and Ice Rink follows an old dirt road for a few hundred yards before the beautifully constructed singletrack begins. This was completely rebuilt and rerouted in 2013, and is an enormous improvement over the unsustainable route that went by the same name before.
This is a downhill flow trail, with berms, S turns, small jumps, and tons of fun! There are sections that can go very fast, but there are some surprise sharp turns and occasional obstacles, so be careful when you can't see far ahead. One very steep part has been turned into a luge run - you might be tempted to climb back up and repeat a few times!
Lower down, the last mile bobs up and down rollers a bit, but the fun continues with small jumps. You'll finish right where you parked.
