Bull Creek Park is located near the intersection of 2222 and 360 in the midst of encroaching development. This area offers a high concentration of more difficult sport routes on limestone as well as some high quality, easy access bouldering. Both the bouldering areas and the walls are well shaded which, along with the location of the creek, make this an ideal place for some summer climbing.

Getting There 

To get to Bull Creek Park from Mopac, take 2222 west toward loop 360 (Capitol of Texas Highway). Near the intersection of 2222 and 360, take a right on Lakewood Springs Dr. Follow the road down to Bull Creek Park. Prior to the creek crossing, park in the dirt parking lot.

If coming from loop 360, take Lakewood Springs Dr. east, crossing the creek and parking at the same dirt parking lot. The primary bouldering area is located just north of the parking lot. For the climbs, follow the creek on the opposite side of the dirt parking lot down toward 2222.

Bull Creek around the parking lot is closed for construction (and I'm not familiar enough with the surrounding area to know if there's a covert way to access this area). This is probably known to local folks but if you're visiting from elsewhere, you might want to find out about Bull Creek's status before heading out. They mention the project here -

It seems like the best approach to the frontside boulders during the construction is to park at the trail access where Laurelwood deadends. Walk down to the creek and hug the bank to arrive at the boulders.
