A beautiful hike through the Bull Creek Greenbelt and perfect for those who like to adventure.

The Valburn to Bull Creek Loop is a 1.6 mile loop hike through the Bull Creek Greenbelt  located in Northwest Austin, Texas. The trail follows alongside the creek and is pretty rocky and steep with many changes in elevation. The trail is very scenic and has many wildlife watching opportunities, as well as a couple small waterfalls. Please be advised that there are not any trail markers and sections of the trail are overgrown, making it easier to get lost. Make sure to have your phone/GPS on you if it's your first time visiting. 

Parking can be found in the parking lot of an office building.

Due to the nature of this trail and the uneven hiking surfaces, it is not suited for those with mobility limitations. Dogs are welcome, just be sure to clean up after them!
