Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
All, We need to make some more!

Summary:
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

Recommended Route:
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!

Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
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.
