Hitt Road Trail 200 – Beginner / Intermediate skill level

Bull Gap Trail – Intermediate skill level
Elevation: 6440 ft.
The Bull Gap trail starts just below the Mt. Ashland ski resort on a fast fireroad that is the beginning of the trail system from the top. It quickly turns to double-track then single-track. Beautiful trees and views surround you as you make the subtle turns and swoops. Descending quickly and not without skillfully manuevering through small rocks and jumps. The next section is a gradual 10 minute climb to more spectacular views and another fantastic single track. It traverses more technically through a forest with plenty of switchbacks and drop-offs. The next section is in a greenbelt meadowy location screaming fast and flowy. Aprox. 4.5 miles in length.

Check out the video!
This is the Crown Jewel of Mt. Ashland! With 2500′ of vertical descent and numerous challenges, such as Log off’s and Rock off’s, this one is not for the beginner level rider. With Lots of Rocks and very high speeds in the first mile of this 3 mile long trail, tire selection can make or break the ride (lot’s of pinch flats) The lower half of this trail has large sweeping berms and a couple of doubles near the end of the trail. Guaranteed to be 10-15 min of the best riding you may ever do!
