Hike Bull Creek Trail

Rate this Adventure 4.4 miles 538 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by Erin Newman-Mitchell

An intermediate 4.5 mile hike great to get the blood flowin', located in northwest Austin along the hills of the Texas Hill Country.

The Bull Creek trail is a nearly 4.5 mile loop hike found in the Bull Creek Greenbelt area of northwest Austin, Texas. This trail, which may be confused with the South-to-North Bull Creek Trail, actually does not follow the creek and instead winds around the hills of the Austin Hill Country.

The trail is shaded in some parts but exposed to the sun in others. The trail itself is not too bad, but there are some rocky sections and large elevation changes. Though there are not many scenic sights, it's overall a great trail for enjoying nature while getting the blood flowing. This area is great for wildlife watching, particularly birds. 

The trail is dog friendly, though I would definitely keep them leashed and pick up after them. The trail is, however, NOT handicap accessible.
