For years Never Ending Story has been the long trail continuing through to approximately where Apiary break would intersect the trail if extended. It has been called this for some years In July 2019 a large section of Never Ending Story was listed on Trailforks as Explosions. Many riders will still consider only the quarry part to be Explosions and the lead in track to be Never Ending Story. The whole of Never Ending Story and the continuing trail of Explosions is a favorite with many riders.

This trail is unsanctioned.
