A delightful stroll. Shade is abundant in most areas. There are at least 5 well used paths off the loop I’ll likely explore on further trips. The trail is slim in most areas, overgrown a bit in a few stretches. Would not recommend shorts. Poké Stops: 1 at entrance Poké Gyms: 0 Pokémon occurrences: Average

As usual, got a good workout and discovered new trails, new ways to run around and have fun. These Valburn and Bull Creek trails make for almost endless exploration and varying terrain.

Parking at Bull Creek park. The trailhead can be tricky to find. Cross the creek just to the north of all the big, huge rocks. You have to search the other side of the creek a little, but eventually you'll find the trail head. Relatively simple trail, with signage. To get onto this trail, and not start running down Bull Creek, make sure and take a right at the first intersection with a sign. The trial itself starts off in the woods, but it gets into the open, with much grass and shrubs. You go in and out of the trees. The trail's not very twisty, and much is dirt flats, but there are roots and rocks so be careful. The best part of this trail is (for trailrunning) the added mileage you can get. While running the hills and switchbacks at Valburn, the creek at Bull Creek, and the enormous hill at the Bull Creek loop, you can get a little easier, flatter mileage here. And, well, it's rather pretty.

First to Review

This is a very short and easy walk through a mostly dry grass clearing in Bull Creek park. I gave it one star because there are many other, better trails in this park. There are side trails and trails that connect to other larger trails.
