Ride from the highpoint in Silver Star provincal park. This trail is tight with some nice raw rock outcroppings. Use Sovereign Lake Road to access or use Aberdeen and Rubberboot from Silverstar to access this one. Its a great addition to upper Dagamals or Hammered Cow!

       If coming from the Sovereign side I recommend pedaling up the Aberdeen XC ski way rather than Sovereign Lake Road to access Raw Bones. I've done it both ways. Sovereign Lake Road up is a long boring grind.
      Of course best access to Raw Bones is from the Silver Star side via Rubber Boot.

       First ride on this today. Unbelievable conditions out there. This trail is unlike most Okanagan riding and I can't wait to get back out here. High five to the trail builders, thank you!
