One of the more advanced trails in the area. Be ready for multiple 3-4 ft drops and lots of fast chunky rock. Trail starts off fast and flowy and then gets steep and tight. Most drops have a go around.

Access Info

Fastest way to the start is to take Bunny to Fossil to the top. Take the 2 track to the left and follow up to Scar. Go left and it will run into Boneshaker.
