Bull Creek Greenbelt

The Bull Creek Greenbelt is one of the best places in Austin for trail running, offering a network of hilly technical trails right off of highway 360. There are many options for running here – you can stay down along the creek where you will likely get your feet wet crossing the creek several times. Or you can venture into the hills north or south of the creek. Note that the trails heading north from Bull Creek to St. Edwards Park are closed in the spring and summer to protect nesting birds. The upside for runners is that mountain bikers are never allowed on these trails. Bull Creek is less crowded than the Barton Creek Greenbelt but it is easy to get lost here, as the trails are not well marked. Try running with a group, the Hill Country Trail Runners often hold group runs at Bull Creek.
