I went just 2 weeks ago, i STRONGLY suggest riding fall creek falls then stanley gap & just missing bull mountain all together. Bull mountain was in hurrendous shape, the rain just killed the trail completely so every 5 feet their is a root with a 6 inch drop off, & just continuos roots & rocks its in horrible shape, fall creek falls was the best ride i ever had ill be going there again. Once you get to fall creek falls its about a 2 mile straight climb to the loop, then you can choose to go right or left once you hit the loop, DO BOTH, you will be walking your bike alot regardless but its so worth it.
If you go right its another 2 or 3 mile climb then a HUGE DROP, im talking 5 or 6 miles straight downhill nonstop brakes burning a fullface would be recommended but if you go this way their is alot more rocks on the downhill but nothing serious, its amazing with a little bit if jumps thrown in, i mean 20 minutes or more of straight downhill.
If you go left which i kinda thought was better, you hit a 3 or 4 mile singletrack downhill, now be careful on this the drops in the beggining are STEEP, youll see its scary, there are no roots or rocks on this part of the loop but youll be going at high speeds flying by trees & ridges, my specialized enduro 05 (one of the best downhill bikes alive) made it that much better, its amazing best track ive ridden alltime, ive ridden all over FL/GA/NC/TN this one takes the cake. Another cool thing about going left is the ramps they have that are optional along the way, you hit them going about 40-50 or more & you fly literally.
Bull mountain isnt worth it until they fix it up im sure it was a great track before the rain ruined it.
Also fall creek falls is about 30-45 min away from bull mountain its on aska road
