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.

I'll be honest: I don't know if I've hiked or ran this exact path. I've run all over these Valburn trails, anfd the Bullcreek trail, and I'm sure I've taken this path. Either way, I know that these trails run through the woods, rocks, by the creek, has overlooks with drop offs, etc. Some are flat dirt trails, some rather rocky, some are right on the creek, and some rock scrambling is sometimes required. These trails out here are amongst the best for a less manicured, more rugged trail system (even if loop 360 and those neighborhoods are right there).

This was a moderately fun trail. It connects the Valburn loop up with the Bull Creek Trail, and features several views of the canyon and the creek. If you do the full loop, there is a section that requires some scrambling up some boulders, and a steep climb, but aside from that, it is a fairly easy trail to hike or run. The trail is lightly trafficked, so it gets dodgy at times trying to find the path, but overall very enjoyable.
