Deer Run Trail - 3.2 miles - hiking and mountain biking
Deer Run Trail begins from the northern picnic areas. The trail traverses up and down wooded hills along the park’s northwestern boundary. Then it descends to the flat bottomlands and runs along the banks of the Little Bonne Femme Creek, where it intersects Spring Brook Trail before looping back to its starting point. Deer are common in the area due to secluded woods and grassy openings. Signs of beavers and muskrats are sometimes seen along the stream. The loud calls of pileated woodpeckers and kingfishers are sometimes heard in the stream vicinity. Deer Run Trail is signed with yellow arrows.
