Beautiful easy hike not too far from home!

Bull Creek
The water is so beautiful here. It looks inviting, but swimming is not allowed off of this trail.

I checked out this trail for the first time today because I wanted to get some outdoor time in, but I didn't want anything too long or strenuous. This fit the bill. The trail is easy and not long. It runs along Bull Creek and there are a couple of off-shoots that lead up to areas on the creek with small waterfalls, which were nice to observe. 

There were some open meadow areas that probably will have wildflowers come Spring, so I plan to come back and check it out then.

Be warned that there is car noise from both 360 and Spicewood Springs Road, but I'm willing to put up with that for a pretty hike that isn't too far from home.
