Used to be full of big stunts, log rides and jumps. Most of the stunts have now been deactivated because they have become dilapidated. Be careful about riding out onto any wodden structures. It's now an awesome climb and has become part of a popular circuit - up Hedonism, cross the powerline, up the first section of S Bomb and then down Brokeback.

Access Info

Either ride straight onto it if you've just come down S Bomb - it's on the opposite side of the powerline road. If you are looking to ride up it, then through Fernie Provincial Park campsite, onto the Island lake Road and down the first section of gravel road, as the road swings left, you will see the trail on the right. Ride in on this for about 50m and then turn left and up.

       Young black bear spotted half way up Hedonism 1300hrs July 29th. Wasn't scared by shouting and clapping but wasn't too interested either. No sign of mama bear.

       The top is like going through a mtb museum. Lots of old stunts. This trail could use some love. The bottom section is killer.

       If you’re looking for a good descent, I would guide you to some of the other trails in the area. The trail is pretty flat, twisty and almost feels abandoned. Would much rather ride Dem Bones. I’d rate this an easy blue going down. Probably best labeled climb primary.
