Mountain Biking Bare Hare / 223b / Saddle Back

This is the furthest-out section of the IMBA Epic Bull Mountain loop. You really get the "out there" feeling when riding this trail along the ridge line. I recommend riding the loop in a counter clockwise direction. 4 miles in one direction, Bare Hare is one of the nicer pieces of singletrack in the Bull Mountain network. Still, some of the climbs are very steep and require a good anaerobic effort.

    Big climb if riding Bull Mt counter clockwise. Or big downhill if riding the loop clockwise. The full loop is equally great on both directions. The climb is awesome either way as are the descents.

    A great trail that is woven into the Jake/Bull Network. It offers some challenges and some rewards for your hardwork. It's not going to be the "Trail" you always have to visit, but it will be a trail that you think in your mind, "Yeah, we'll do that one Again"
