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.
