“A tour of most of the trails on Bogus Basin (other than Around the Mountain).”— Scott Andrews

The next section of Elk Meadows is gorgeous, and at the right time of year, you'll be riding through fields of wildflowers. At the end of the trail, you'll meet a road; bear left and start climbing.
Skip the first steep left turn, then take a sharp left onto the Pack Trail (149). This road winds to the top of Superior Lift, from which you'll descend on The Face (93). The Face starts right under the lift, and descends through some technical features before meeting Tempest Trail (95). Unless you like terribly-constructed switchbacks, stay left on The Face and follow it back to the road.
You'll now be at the middle intersection of Elk Meadows and the road; turn right and retrace your steps to the top of Deer Point Trail (91).
From here, bear right on Brewers Byway (96) (make sure not to take Shindig Trail (92) by mistake). Race back across the mountain to just above the Pioneer Lodge; follow the road left of the lodge to the top of Morning Star Trail (97). This was recently restricted to downhill biking only, although that could always change. Open it up on Morning Star Trail (97), which takes you back to Simplot Lodge, beer, and food.
