I love Bull Creek even though it looks truly awful. I would love to be part of a group to clean this park up. My wife brought a bag and we picked up a huge bag of trash. We hiked from the south (Lakewood/360 lot) on the west side and did the loop slightly up Jester and back down.
The Dominion Neighborhood Association created this trail, which I found on a mountain biking site, trails.com which calls it Thumper (though we didn't see anyone on the trail at all save for a few deer). Park on Yaupon by the rock near the pool. Begin descending the rocky trail slightly and then head to the left, and you'll see an arrow pointing left into the woods. This trail was seemingly built to cover every square inch of this wooded area, we passed the same picnic bench 4 different times on different parts of the trail, and you'll see a few signs naming parts of the trail. Periodically you'll see maps though they don't tell you where you are. We got down to the creek and lost the trail but got back to the entrance fairly easily, but be prepared to not find easy exits of this trail. It's much like walnut creek for the amount of trails and dry smelly creeks. I think the HOA built such a long trail that no one bothers to hike it, nice if you want a long hike close to town. I took a bunch of pictures but the site is not letting me upload them, sorry!
Up the rock, down the rock. Barren at the top but a decent view.
We hiked east on the loop trail, went about halfway around, then through the camping area and on the Echo trail, bouldering our way to the summit trail. Very hot and dry with no water running through the creeks. Not really that interesting during dry periods.
For whatever the reason the main gate was closed, Sunday at 1 pm, but they said you could enter where the horses do (2 driveways east). In 3 hours we only saw one group, 6 people on horses. Really nice trail but don't bother with Yaupon on the west end, long, boring, and steep. Very hot day for us but we do love this park. Pine Ridge to Riverside and back on Woodland is a great way to go. The overlook isn't much. This was our 3rd hike here in just over 3 years.
