A Fernie classic. Rooty, flowy, with lots of twists and turns. A great climb and a great descent. There are a couple of tiny features for those who want to try them out.

Access Info

Ride through the campground, staying to the North side of it (turn right immediately after entering the campground area), turn right on a small road next to a service building and both Stove and Dem Bones trailheads are right there.
