Description

Boney Elbows splits off to the right from Entrails for a short jaunt through the trees before reaching a split. On the left is a succession of small to medium sized slabs and to the right is one loooooong slab. If you head right, be prepared for a steady descent that has a touch of g-out at the bottom before the two options reconnect.

Some rolls and turns lead past the base of a rock formation. After the next corner, a steep punchy climb will get you out of the saddle and possible off your bike altogether if you're ill-prepared for the challenging corner at the top (it's a bit of a pinch). Continue on through the awkward roots and rocks to reach a great viewpoint across Squamish. The line stays to the right, but it's worth stopping to take in the views before braking down the slab to a tight left-hander that leads to the next slab.

This one features a few staggered sections. The grip is good, but you'll still pick up some momentum which can be unsettling as you head over a small drop/roll part way down. After you've managed that, the trail keeps going into a bit of a chute before touching down on dirt. Head through the trees and shrubs to another fork in the trail.

Again the easier option is on the left while the right serves up a shorter but much rougher offering of rock. Watch the runout as you won't have as much control here. Just a little bit more riding through the trees will deposit you across a small bridge and onto the Access Road.
