I dont know what these other guys reviewing this trail have been riding but for the area this is a very fun trail. It is not the longest and it doesn't have the most elevation change but i mean you want to ride 20+ miles your riding the wrong bike bud! As far as elevation goes nothing around here is going to change too dramatically so get over it. All in all its a great scenic trail to get out on and get some time on your bike, bomb a few small DH sections and enjoy being outside.

If all you do is ride the easy trail adjacent to the creek, then you are missing all the fun at Bull Creek, take the high road and explore the scary technical ridge trails - they take some exploring to find but are awesome in views and challenges

Customer Service

Start out at the lower trailhead at the upper end of Laurelwood Drive - Keep to the right when it opens up and start the steep ascent, awesome technical trail that runs along the ridge, over 45 minutes of switchbacks, and technical stuff (Kens Trail?), outlets into the neighborhood above, onto 360 at the office park, or ride a short distance up 360 and hop onto the upper trail above the drainage culvert at the bridge over upper Bull Creek

The key to getting a good ride at Bull Creek is to always head uphill!

Be nice. This trail isn't bad for beginners, and even intermediates can have a fun ride. This trail is adjacent to the Balcones Canyonland Preserve. It's called the "Galapogos of Texas" and has a lot of history. Along many of the flat limestones stretches you can see ruts left by years of cedar chopper's wagon wheels. There are waterfalls, small swimming holes, and lots of creek crossings. I live in the neighborhood on the south side of Bull Creek Park, so I ride the five miles quite often. It may not be the greenbelt or city park, but take your beginner friend and enjoy the scenery.

Customer Service

Start in Bull Creek park, cross the creek about 100 yds north of the rope swing. You'll cross under 360 2 or three times (depending on the route you take). The trail forks into a loop before you get to Spicewood Springs Road. You have to ride up the street a 1/4 mile then reenter at the northern trailhead.

There are actually 2 trail heads. One at spicewood springs, the other just off loop 360 south of spicewood . From spicewood there are 2 starting trails. Follow the park signs for a harder trail with a creek crossing and hills. Go down for the first cross under 360. From there it is dirt until you hit the flat rocks with
crevasses. This is short and very bumpy. After it smooths out until you get to another cross under 360.
head toward the mountain and there is a trail / ledge
that is smooth. Take this thru the trees for a while until either you end up at bull creek park or continue straight for a hill to sprint up.
Turn around and go back for a 5 mile track.

Customer Service

Start at trail head at Spicewood springs road and
loop 360 park.
Go south, you will cross under loop 360 twice. Eventuall ending up at bull creek part. Turn around
go back. Entire length is about 5 miles

Its decent, no climbing like Forest Ridge, but it does have some fun spots.

Be sure and check out Ken's trail. When starting from s.s./360, that first short steep downhill you hit with the sharp right at the bottom, take a left instead of following the trail to the right. I think it splits right away, stay to the right. You will have to hike/carry your bike up a good ways, then you will see the trail at the top, maybe 5 miles at this point of different trails, slowly being destroyed by new development, ride it while you can, and be careful, one area with a 200 foot drop inches from trail.

the hills aren't too bad at all, and the trail really works on your endurance. take a few different roots the first few times until you figure out where the best place for bikers are. the best part: not as much foot traffic as most of the other trails. bring a towel. there's a lot of water in the creek after a good rain, and some good places to get a little muddy. perfect for all levels of bikers, and better if you can find someone who knows the trail pretty well.

i start by the apartments just north of 2222 on the west side of 360. that's about the halfway point. best to go east first, then double back. there's a good pool to cool off in after you finish.

Alright i don't know where everyone else put in but this was a straight ascent for a good mile at least. Somehow i always seem to end up going up this bitch in August in the middle of the day. It gets kind of weird at the top as you really dont know if the trail runs through the residential area or not -it doesn't if you find yourself heading into the hood turn back. Get ready for a wild ride down!!!

Customer Service

Get in by the park route off 360

Horrible trail... not fast... Pretty damn rocky I dont know if your into that stuff but its rough. Pretty much if you want speed this isnt the place to go there is no place that you can just sprint and make those nasty turns going 15+
