Description

Overall, the trails in Bulls Bay Preserve are a lot of fun. SORBA does a great job of putting pavers down in wet and/or easily eroded areas and has cleared over 2 miles of trail in the area since September of 2018, and the trails are just now wearing in so most is hardpacked, but there's still some soft sand. The area is flowy and features a decent amount of elevation change.

The trail (counter-clockwise for the puproses of this guide) starts out with a left-hand turn into the woods and follows the parking lot for a while before delving deeper into the trees. After this, the trail flows through a nice wooded area until a junction is reached. As of now, a left turn at this junction takes you to a small waterfall with a bench facing it and some very freshly cut trail not yet worth riding. Take a right here and follow the trail until a second junction.

At the second junction, you'll reach a high/low line split. The high line is relatively flat and easy, whereas the low line is filled with some nice rollers that can be pumped. Regardless of which path you take here, you'll reach an area with steep, sandy hills that offer some creative line choices which all funnel into the main trail. Once back on the main trail, you'll reach a steep climb that takes you to a ridge near the road. Follow this ridge for a fun jump line and some more trails, or go right and head back to the trailhead/parking area.
