The Bull Creek Hills are a series of hills in the entrance to the Highwood Valley.
For this trip, we hiked up the eastmost hill, and returned the same way.
The route is unofficial the whole way, but pretty clear. The trail starts out clear ascending a small ridge.
At the top of the ridge, the trail filters out into an assortment of paths.
On the other side of the creek, the route passes through a meadow and a tunnel of trees.
After the tree tunnel, the route is pretty open and windswept the rest of the way.

The upper slope was windy enough that we hid under the ridge.
