Deep Creek Trail

Aspen Trees Galore

Deep Creek Trail serves as a great trail for running, hiking, and especially mountain biking. In the Fall, the aspen trees are particularly beautiful and glow gold in the sunshine! Accessible from two directions, this single track trail takes you through forests of spruce and aspen, occasional wildflower meadows and over the river.  

Distance: 7.5 miles
Difficulty: Moderate
Time: Approx. 4-5 hours 


Western Access: Drive west on Highway 145 for two miles and turn right onto Last Dollar Road towards the airport. Continue past the airport approximately one mile and find the trailhead parking lot on your right.
