How to find it
Either ride straight onto it if you've just come down S Bomb - it's on the opposite side of the powerline road. If you are looking to ride up it, then through Fernie Provincial Park campsite, onto the Island lake Road and down the first section of gravel road, as the road swings left, you will see the trail on the right. Ride in on this for about 50m and then turn left and up.

The trail
Used to be full of big stunts, log rides and jumps. Most of the stunts have now been deactivated because they have become dilapidated. Be careful about riding out onto any wodden structures. It's now an awesome climb and has become part of a popular circuit - up Hedonism, cross the powerline, up the first section of S Bomb and then down Brokeback.

Snowshoed the trail - it needs a lot more to pack it down. A couple down/leaning tress but all easy enough to get around.

Snowshoed up and down. Needs more tracks on it. The lower section had a moose post hole quite substantially.

A few tracks on this but needs more snowshoeing. A tree over the trail you need a saw to remove, barely can squeeze through it.

Grizzly encountered on powerline road today between Mushroom Head and Dem Bones. (Not aggressive but was claiming her trail and continued walking towards me. Had to turn around and hike a bike out. Keep your eyes open if you’re in the area.)
