FREE Hike: Bull Creek at Lakewood Drive

Growing Up Austin - Bull Creek - Austin Kids Hike

This post is part of the FREE Hike of the Week series, brought to you by There are a thousand places to hike in Austin on any given day, most of which are always free, but here is a handy reminder about one favorite. Visit for more kid-friendly hikes and for tips on hiking with kids. A summer tip – early morning and after dinner are the best times to beat the heat!

This spot has so much going for it, I daydream about buying one of the houses in the neighborhood. You can stay at the park to wade in the shallow waters of Bull Creek, enjoy a snack at picnic tables or use the restroom. There is a trail head at the north end of the park, for a shaded hike. There is plenty of parking at the park.

Stroller friendly: the park is, the hiking trail is not

Restrooms: yes

Water: yes, Bull Creek is good for wading with water shoes, it is usually too shallow for swimming
