Trail Information - Bull Creek District Park


Description

This is park of well worn trails along Route 360 in west Austin. The park boundaries adjoin Cat Mountain trails on the east side of Route 360 and the Jester Mountain or High Ridge trails on the west side.

Fun Factor

There are many well travelled trails in Bull Creek Park. This is a good place for meeting many experienced mountain bikers.

Great fun and danger can be had following rain storms. Since Bull Creek is firmly embedded in limestone rock, there is little problem with erosion or trail damage. Be prepared to get wet. However, note that there is great danger in riding in ragin streams, especially after the rains such as the one we have had in June of 1997.

If you get tired of the Bull Creek trails, try Jester Mountain or High Ridge trails on the west side of Route 360 (just go up the mountain) or explore Cat Mountain on the east side.
