Bear Bones is the quickest trail from the top Rose Valley Peak to get to the Rose Valley Dam access road to continue the Lake Loop. Not overly technical but the last section of the trail is called Side Show Bob and that 300 meters is better rated as advanced rather than intermediate.

      Trail is running really well, mostly super dry. One or two muddy soft spot, the rest is fantastic.

      All deadfall cleared. Trail running good but as the ground thaws over the next few weeks it will get muddy.

      Conditions were surprisingly good before the snow fall last night. Frozen ground with traction being predictable for the whole trail.
