Bull Spring Trail #34 is a 7 mile round trip hike with 1,304 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 39 miles north-northeast of Scottsdale Arizona. April and March are the best months to enjoy this hike.

Overview: Go past the locked gate and walk 3.6 miles down to road to the Bull Spring Trail on the left. Take the Bull Spring trail to the Brush trail intersection and take a right. Go over the pass and descend down a bit. After a bit you'll go over the Bull Spring Canyon and the Bull Spring. After another mile of so, you'll reach the unsigned intersection of the Bull Spring / Wet Bottom trails. There are cairns though. Go down the right side trail to get the end of the trail. At the end is the Childer's Seep. The forest service claimed there's a cabin here, but I couldn't find it.

Check out the Official Route.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.

    To hike
    From Highway 87 in Payson, take Main Street west. The Pavement ends after a couple miles, and road becomes FR 406. After going past the water treatment station, the pavement returns. About 9 miles from the start of FR 406, the City Creek trailhead is on your right and the packed dirt road returns. Go about a mile past the City Creek TH to the Doll Baby TH. This is where FR 406 ends at a locked gate.
