Rock the Boat departs from New Boss and descends to the Saddle. Numerous jumps, berms, and rock gardens punctuate this trail for a fun, flowy, and sometimes, pedaly descent. Connections (Boat Rock Bail Out and The Stern) exist to cross over to Boat Rock, enabling riders to piece together loops higher on the mountain.
