Moderately strenuous to very strenuous. Some sections are technically challenging (rocky,creek crossings)

We will travel clockwise climbing 3 miles up the Bull Mtn trail. After the intial climb the trail will have more moderate up and down sections meeting up with the Bare Hare trail. After another fairly strenuous climb we will be rewarded with some tight fun downhill, leading to even faster open downhill. Upon reaching FS77a, we will choose whether to continue the traditional loop finish or connect with the Jones Creek Ridge Trail. This section is again good mix of climbs and level areas. Passing over the dam we will again join the Bull Mtn Trail where we started.

NOTES: The entire loop will be about 15 miles and depending on group size take @2.5-4 hrs to finish, and is my favorite ride in GA. Great mixture of terrain and challenges in a very pretty setting. There are no estrooms or water available . Pls contact me with any questions.
