Hero: Bull Pen
small-sr Icon
Bull Pen is named for a canyon through which runs West Clear Creek, a tributary of the Verde River. The road to Bull Pen branches off Beaver Creek. There are several dispersed campsites along the first two miles of Bull Pen. One has a great view. Another is flat and large enough for multiple rigs. The trail descends steeply into a lush riparian day-use area, the Bull Pen. There is no camping, but the site has a vault toilet and numerous areas to park, picnic, and splash in the cool waters of West Clear Creek. Tall sycamores and cottonwoods provide shade, while the thickets of underbrush are alive with bird calls. The day-use area also serves as a trailhead for the West Clear Creek hiking trail,
