Description

For those looking for something a little different, this remote spur provides loads of scenery, challenging climbs and fast descents on a narrow trail through the hills of Black Mountain. This trail is ridden as an out-and-back for those looking to tack on a solid extension to a loop ride off High Point and Bones Trail. Be aware of fence crossings along the way.

Singletrack is bliss on the Painter Boy section of the trail.

Did CCW loop. Overgrown, lots of sm. plants that will rip you, recommend leg pro. Watch for cairns marking trail. Fun, wish it got more use.

Lightly used but easy to navigate, I had the GPS track but didn't need it. I branched off at the Bones intersection, I didn't see the continuation.

Just a note the the northern portion of this trail is virtually non-existent, I lost it several times and ended up riding through no trail terrain.
