After doing a lot of exploring and not finding any public trails we decided to see what Bull Mountain Road had to offer. The trail was mellow at first but the scenery was nice.
There was a section marked with signs noting it was steep and narrow, but it wasn't anything major. We didn't see any other vehicles during that portion of the trail so it wasn't a concern.
At the top of that hill there was a wide spot next to the trail. It was later in the afternoon than when we usually stop for lunch so everyone was hungry. We stopped there and really enjoyed the views of the valley below us and the mountains nearby. We weren't even getting eaten by mosquitoes, so it was a nice lunch.
After that we headed up into the trees. The trail was pretty mellow with not much scenery but there were lots of tracks on the trail from vehicles. We even saw a truck or two. We figured it was a popular trail with hunters.
We took the spurs that looked the most promising as ones to get to Bull Mountain but they ended at big, permanent gates. The trails continued at one point but they were long dead. We felt like we just drove through the woods for not much of a reward.
It wasn't the most popular trail with the group and I doubt we'll do this one again. Still, any trail is a good trail and we didn't mind the trip. We headed back down and then back over to do Hohnholz Lakes again to get over to the North Sand Hills.
