Trail shared by John McKinney

Run through cow country to the calm waters around Bull Point.

Description

From the trailhead of the Bull Point Trail, the beginning of the path is a little rough and hard to keep track of. After crossing a pasture, however, the trail is significantly improved. Follow the path for 3/10 of a mile to a cattle gate, after which the trail bends toward the south along Creamery Bay (which lies to your right). Along the way be sure to run on doubletrack paths rather than the narrow cattle paths for the sake of ease. As the path takes you closer to the water you'll be able to see Schooner Bay on your left. The trail eventually comes to an end as it reaches the edge of a beach-side bluff.
