Description

This singletrack trail features several short climbs when headed in the southbound direction. The northern entrance can be found at the second parking lot near the Maple Lake Boating Center and is near the southern entrance to Hickory Smoked.This trail passes by the parking lot at Pulaski Woods South on Wolf Road and the southern end terminates at Palos Yellow Multitrack East.

Riding Bullwhip in the southbound direction will start with several wide switchback climbs and a single armored hump. There will then be a section with some tight turns and then a short downhill run toward the parking lot at Pulaski Woods South. Continuing straight across a dirt road will lead to a short climb with some waterbars and berms, more climbing, and you'll emerge on Palos Yellow Multitrack East. Heading left on the multitrack will take you to Middle Entrance to Stonehouse - East and Middle Entrance to Stonehouse - West, or go a little further to access the northern trailhead of Burrito Hill. Heading right on the multitrack will take you toward the Wolf Road Woods parking lot, Palos Orange Multitrack, Gravity Cavity, and Pipeline can be found.

Riding Bullwhip northbound from Palos Yellow Multitrack East will lead you downhill to several waterbars and a bermed turn. After passing by the Pulaski Woods South parking lot, there will be an easy climb, several wide sweeping downhill turns and an armored hump. The trail will end at the Maple Lake Boating Center parking lot. Heading right through the parking lot will bring you to Hickory Smoked.
