Alex and I finally made it out to the Bull Canyon TH to hike the Deep Creek Trail with no rain in the forecast. The weather was very sunny, although a little hazy when you looked long distances. The morning was very cool, but once we started walking we warmed up right away.

We hiked the entirety of the Deep Creek Trail to the junction with the Moody Point Trail, where we had lunch. Since we had just seen the ruins back in November, we weren't up for that adventure again today. On our way back, we hiked up a small section of the Coon Spring Trail #124 to see how that looked. I had some confusion that trail was decommissioned, but apparently is the Coon Creek Trail #254 on the western end of that trail that is gone now. Both the Deep Creek Trail and the section of the Coon Spring were in great shape. The Deep Creek Trail fades a little bit in sections after it crosses Deep Creek, but is still very easy to follow.

The views of the buttes north of the trail provided some of the best scenery on the hike. Most of the hike had alternating sections of pinyon pines and chapparal bushes. At the creek crossings there was the typically heavier vegetation, but nothing that caused major bushwhacking headaches. On our way back just north of Deep Creek we accidently got off trail and found a full cattle tank.

Looking forward soon to going back to this TH to hike the Coon Spring Trail and also maybe hit the Nordoff-Hope Cliff Dwellings along FR203A that I forgot were there when we did this hike.
