Let off the brakes, and fly down this trail With cool jumps, drops, and rocks, you'll wish it kept on going forever!
Right by Stoney Trail (22X), this is a fun and fast descent that gives you large stones (hence the name) to skip over and jumps to send you far!

Drop right in, and you are greeted with a rocky but flowy start. The trails gets smoother as you get to some of the jumps. Two super-fun large jumps meet you, but you still have the option to avoid them. You then encounter more rocks as you get more speed for some of the smaller jumps ahead. After hitting (or avoiding) a few small jumps, you are then challenged to keep the flow through a small rock garden.

Make sure to slow down before you hit the two large boulders at the end of the descent. However, this doesn't mean that you can't carry your speed through the smooth single track after the descent. Choose the correct turns, and you'll find yourself crossing a rock bridge. Continue right to the end of the trail.

Make sure to watch out for some hikers and dog-walkers too!

Access Info

Continue to the end of the paved pathway in Cranston. You should turn left onto some single track. After going straight, you will be greeted by the choice of a turn onto the trail, a drop-in start, step down, or a drop.

Get ready to rip it!

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       At the end of trail it needs a serious trimming. At the boulders the berm is very tight and if you build a wooden jump over the boulders that would be amazing (probably won't happen though sad face) The jumps are really dying and need packing down.
