At the western end the two are joined by an automobile bridge, but at their eastern end is only a seasonal footbridge that's normally installed between mid-May (but sometimes not until the end of July) and late September. At other times the creek may still be only a few inches deep and easily forded. When the footbridge is out and the creek becomes a raging torrent, the best alternative to the full loop hike is an out-and-back on the Bull Creek Flats Trail, which is the better of the two trails.
Bull Creek Flats Trail is a 9 mile loop trail located near Myers Flat, CA that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from May until October.
