Old Bones is bringing it back old school with a truly 100% hand-built loam trail. This technical downhill only trail dips and dives its way down between tight trees, over root wads, and through some soft loam pockets. Looking for something a little less "manicured" and "flowy"... Old Bones is your trail, where you will have to work your way down, finding your own flow and keeping your speed in check. Watch the edge as you exit onto New Bones and continue left. You will exit the bottom of New Bones where you can climb up Copperhead Road for an easy pedal back to the top for more. You can also hang a tight right at the end of Old Bones and climb up New Bones, a blue two-way trail. Watch for merging traffic.

Access Info

Take the hand built section of New Bones along the tree line at the clear cut. Old Bones is on the left at the top.

       Almost couldn’t find this trail, but I’m glad I did. A quick trail. Steep & rooty. Super fun.
