Description

Deep Creek Trail follows Deep Creek along the bottom of a 2,500 feet narrow, steep sided cliff bordered canyon. The scenery contains outstanding and diverse features and wildlife watching, fishing, and primitive camping opportunities are good.

Site includes steep walled canyon with limestone, dolomite and sandstone cliffs. The canyon is carved 2000 feet deep into the White River Plateau. Vegetation bordering the creek in this diverse riparian zone is dominated by spruce, cottonwood and shrubs. Recreation in the area consists of hiking the trail along the creek, roadside and walk in campsites, as well as fishing, hunting and spelunking.

Use is limited to hiking; motorized vehicles are prohibited. The trail is a well defined track for the first 3 to 4 miles - it becomes diffuse in places due to narrowing of the canyon and travel on the creek bed necessary in a few places beyond 5 miles up the canyon.
