The top starts out with a little sheepbones sign surrounded by sheep skulls. I am guessing they found a lot, and thus named it. The trail flows pretty easy going down, it can get a bit narrow, tight, but really pretty easy trail.

       A trail that has become smoother over time and use. It still has some short, rough and challenging steep pitches that can be powered up. Techy in spots.
