Bull Run Details
A lovely piece of single track through a protected part of Belmont Regional Park. Nice flowing runs with some small drop offs and tight turns. The final few hundred meters are a series of sweeping banks with nice jumps.
It is a clay surface though and in the wet it can be very slippery. The height of the trail means it can get moisture when it's not raining on the valley floor so it can be wet. The trail is sheltered and can take a while to dry up.
Upper section and lower sections are slippery when wet!
Access to the Bull Run is from Old Coach road in Belmont Regional Park. Old Coach road has 2 entries: from the end of Normandale Road (the very end, turn left where it joins to Sweetacres Drive) or from within Belmont Regional Park at the end of Hill Road.
Belmont Regional park - Hill Road entrance: From the last car park ride up the farm road until you get to the farm house. Just past the farm house on the left is an old WWII ammunition bunker which is the entrance to Old Coach Road. The track is an unsealed farm track which is exposed to the wind and slippery (when wet). You should expect to encounter farm animals and the out put of farm animals...so try not to swallow the 'mud'.
End of Normandale Road: Old Coach Road begins from the end of Normaldale road also. You need to take the left as it joins Sweetacres Drive (the big hump in the road) and then drive to the end. From there ride along Old Coach Road until you come to the entrance to Bull Run. You will also pass the start of Borderline on the right by going this way.
