Comments: We started our hike at bull creek ditrict park. Didnt expect to cross the creek so early, so i have to take off my shoes! but it was ok, alot of doggy are there too! looks like a dog park for me. But anyway, the trail is nice coz most of it are covered with tree shade. So even it's noontime it is still fine to hike the trails. We saw some water pools, it's calling me to jump in but one thing i dont like is... there's a lot more dogs swimming than people. Me and my husband saw snakes in different occassions so watch out where you step. That scared the whole lot of me. Watch for the dog poop too! We stopped in some places to rest, like on top of laid flat stones along the way facing the creek... and some nice spot along the trails with rushing water. We enjoyed our long hike, we rested back in the park after our hike.. laid out towels and read books to relax. Overall... the experience was worth it.
