The trail starts at the end of 700.BB and goes through some big boulders until it opens up on nice singletrack.

At the first intersection, take a right, this will begin the climb behind Reynolds Hill. The trail gets progressively steeper until you reach the bench behind Reynolds. Just after you reach the bench, keep going straight.

Several trails join Skeleton; if you take any left-hand turns, you'll head down to Middle Crow Creek trail. After a few miles, the trail passes through some technical rock sections, and some steep up and down sections.

Finally, pass through a (mostly) wet bog, before descending (go through a fence), and eventually reaching Middle Crow Creek. It is important to note that the trail is not presently marked with any trail markers.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
