Deer Creek Canyon Park- EASY to Moderate Hike.

  • This location is shown only to members



Folks, We will hike up to and around the Red Mesa loop. Approx. distance-8.2miles and about 1650 feet of elevation change. This is a very beautiful and rewarding hike. One of my favorites.Dress for the weather. If real cold dress in LAYERS and if significant snow Microspikes,Yak Tracks or snowshoes. Bring plenty of food and water.Will add more as weather dictates it.

Overview: Directions: Take I-70 West to C-470 East. Take the Wadsworth Boulevard exit. Turn right off of the exit and then turn right at the first light, Deer Creek Canyon road. Go about 2 miles to a stop sign, turn left and continue past the South Valley park trail head. In less than a mile from the South Valley park trail head, turn left onto Grizzly Drive. This will lead you to the obvious parking lot on your right. Dogs allowed on a leash.

By signing up for this hike you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of this hike and the gear you will require.

    Doug, late night tonight. I know it'll be a difficult time making the hike tomorrow. Sorry to miss everyone. Catch you next time.

    Before I say yes I need to ask if this hike is ok for a beginner. I just moved here about 2 weeks ago from Miami and have not hiked in 20 years. I would love it if someone could contact me so I can pick your brains a bit about what I would need and can expect. Doug...I see your number...can I call you?Thanks!

      Kristen, You should probably do a few of my beginner hikes first. They are every Wednesday at Bluffs Regional Park at 6 pm. It is on the Trails and Ales calander. It is a very easy and fun hike and full of people new to the area.

    The restaurant is a little out of the way, I think. The sushi restaurant cross street from Rox is pretty good. Since I am an Asian, think I could put in my 2 cents here. Just a thought.

      We are always open to suggestions,Sharon. JP's is 5.8 miles from the trailhead but most people seem to like the very wide variety they have there. We'll check the other place out in the near future.
