REOPEN: Black Bear Trail has reopened. The trail was closed for seasonal wildlife protection followed by trail repairs.

Deer Creek Canyon Park has several trails that hikers and equestrians can have to themselves including Meadowlark, Homesteader, and Golden Eagle Trails. On multi-use trails, mountain bikers enjoy the challenge of  “The Wall,” a steep section of rocky terrain on Plymouth Creek Trail, and pedal the 2.5-mile Red Mesa Loop. All park visitors should be aware of the risk of rattlesnake encounters. 

Black Bear Trail information:
Black Bear Trail is posted as Stay On Trail for multiple reasons. Please respect this park regulation and help protect this new trail and the neighborhoods. Seasonal closure in effect February 1-July 31.
