Freak Boy is a short x-country/all-mountain trail located in the Mosquito Lake Area. This is an advanced run that incorporates several short technical sections along a descending singletrack route. Rocks and slabs are scattered along the route down to the final half of the trail which drops into a heavily treed area. The last few hundred metres contain several mandatory one foot drops over downed trees and a final air (which may be avoided) over a Technical Trail Feature (TTF) dropping directly onto the flat Mosquito Lake Road below. Other than the last TTF on the trail, for the most part, this trail has some great flow and is considered a soft black when compared with trails like Cream Puff, Grumpy Grouse and Meat Grinder, all found in the area.

Access to Freak Boy is via Econoline and found about halfway down the trail, when riding Econoline from either direction. For those looking for a way to loop or access this trail without riding along the gravel road (Old Fotsch Road), consider taking Sphincter Rock to Scruffy’s Bypass and up Rock and Roll to Econoline. From there continue east (left) for less than 160 m to the trailhead for Freak Boy. Finish riding Freak Boy down to the Mosquito Lake Road and over to the parking lot or continue creating your adventure by riding the plethora of trail choices found in the area.
