Alot of climbing.. steep sections had to hike a bike but a long downhill is the payoff.. trails are only marked with numbers so make sure you know where your going because my phone died .. its a fun trail and beautiful woods

       Definitely don’t go ride this with the mindset of it being a black! Lot of climbing even on the dissent very gradual easy wide not many obstacles or features! On the upside it’s pretty but it left me feeling bored!

       Original description by a novice, not accurate. There is no hike a bike. The trail is a blue, not a black. Very few real black trails in N Ga
      Bull is a fun trail. Climb up this staying to the left at both forks then down Bear Hare.
      Bull is biggest single track climb here on the map.
      Not shown are the forest rds you will need to loop everything together.
