Well, after looking at this, next weeks exploration around cherry creek shouldn't be a problem for you! I'm glad you're healing well.

I'll work on recovering this week. Johnny_5 and I did a few miles at Sycamore on Sunday too, including going UP Skyline! Any muscle I tensed up Sunday afternoon/evening went into an instant cramp.

Great report! I haven't been up there forever, definitely different looking trail than I remember.

Question

Is this different than Bull Run? I have been riding with the Helmet center guys up there and I am pretty sure you are talking about the same road. The loop was down Bradshaw and up Bull Run but I cant remeber the rocky sections being as bad as in your pictures.

Looks like a great place for a hike...without the bike!

The pics and report are great, thanks.

I think Bull Run & Bull Road are interchangeable. It's marked in the PNF KMZ file as Bullroad (all one word). It's the 202 trail.

Actually, there is a way to do it where you'd skip a lot of the northern section of trail and it wouldn't look so rocky. If you came down Bradshaw and then hooked over on Tuscumbia, that cuts off a lot of the northern part of the 202. You'd end up in the same spot if you went all the way down Bradshaw and then took Battle Flat over.

Bull Road

Hello
if you say "Bull Run" everybody that has ridden it over the years knows were you rode.... if you say "Bull Road" then we are confused...:)
1st time up 1970... Bultaco Sherpa 125... last time 2011 KTM 300 SX...yes kitted 250 SX..:)

Nice RR! Looks like a blast. I wish I would have been on this ride instead of passing RZR's on the back way to Crown King.

Bullroad or Bull Run??? This was the trail we started on



Pretty darn scenic trail up to this point.



Yardstick navigating the beginning of the wash.



This was about as good as the trail looked in the miles of wash

Occasionally we would find the trail and make some mileage. Unfortunately, it was usually only to be dumped back into the wash.



Here Yardstick is attempting to maneuver a tricky spot while dodging the deadly spears of death!

This was went on and on. At the same time we were constantly searching the banks for signs of the actual trail we were supposed to be on.




Yardstick lining up for this off camber rock face.





One of the spear of death branches caught my hydropack bite piece and broke it off. Yardstick found it but it was toast. A small stick fixed me right up.

At this point it seemed like we were measuring our forward progress in yards. Yardstick working his way up the wash.





We finally got lucky and found a sign from above the we were on the 202.

We kept coming around corners and finding dead ends, requiring backtracking to find the work around.



Here we were back on the trail for awhile.



Only to be dumped back into the wash.




Yardstick coming down that spot.




Only to arrive here.

Wow! 13 miles in 2.5 hrs



The fire and subsequent flooding really did a number on this area.




Yardstick doing the deadfall limbo.



Right after this, we found the trail that climbed out of the wash. There were a few technical sections but after slogging through the wash for hrs, it was great to be able to ride a real trail. It was a tough day but all in all, I had a blast!
