Bull Creek Hike + Food!

Thanks to everyone who made it to the last hike, I thought I'd try to schedule one in town this time.

Where: Bull Creek Park, let's meet in the parking lot (the one near the restrooms). We'll leave from there promptly at 10:30 AM.

What to expect: Some hiking through shallow water, a rocky ascent up the hillside trails, optional rock-climbing hijinks on the South end of the trail, and a fairly brisk pace. Expect around a 2-hour hike. We'll do the hike rain or shine, unless the weather is genuinely dangerous (thunder and lightning). Pets are welcome if they can climb steep, rocky hillside slopes.

Afterwords, we'll probably grab lunch nearby at Estancia Churrascaria (a brazilian steakhouse recommended by Jared). Please note that this place is fairly expensive: http://www.estanciachurrascaria.com/our_menu.html

Q. Can you join us just for the hike, or just for the lunch? A. Sure, I'll do my best to coordinate but I'm not a master of meetup logistics. You can reach me at[masked] (text or voice).

    Arg, didn't realize there were two Bull Creek entrances; apologies to miss. Logistical brain perhaps in need of some work.

    Does anybody know where Estancia Churrascaria gets their meat? Is it local, factory farm?

    What kind of footwear would you suggest? Are hiking boots non-primal?

      All the cool kids will be wearing moccasins hand-made from wooly mammoth skin. But the rest of us will be wearing hiking boots and shoes, that can get a little bit muddy and a little bit wet :)

    The Brazilian place sounds amazing, but I also am unsure I can afford it. But maybe one weekday at lunch? It's a bit cheaper then. Anyone wanna go one weekday in addition to Saturday?

      Sure, just pick a day and I'll schedule it :)

    I've done this hike and it's really quick.. faster than it seems. We can always jump around on some rocks in there too though :)

      Yeah, the 'normal' route is around an hour and a half.

      But it takes longer if you jump on the rocky vertical paths on the South end, and play around on the rocks :)

      Cool. I'm probably in for just the hike, lunch on weekends at estancia is pretty pricey.
