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.
