Hike, stroll, meander or run. Self-guided hikes are for YOU! Explore the marked trails of Deer Creek Hills Preserve at your own speed. Donations are vital to maintaining and Preserve and offering public outings. Consider donating online or leaving a few bucks in the donation jar at the registration table.
There are 3 trail options:
-North Pond Loop — approximately 3 miles, mostly shaded. Can be started no later than 11:30am
-Two Ponds Loop — 4.5 miles, mostly in open skies. Can be started no later than 11:00am
-Barn Pond Loop — 6 miles, mixture of open skies and shaded woodland. Can be started no later than 10am.
A map will be provided and the trails are marked. Please dress appropriate for the forecasted weather (layers recommended), wear sturdy closed-toed shoes, and bring a cell phone, snacks and plenty of water. SVC Staff working the event will exchange cell numbers with you prior to hiking out.
The road to access Deer Creek Hills is not paved and requires crossing Crevis Creek. 4WD and higher clearance vehicles are recommended, especially in the spring when there is water in Crevis Creek, but are not required. Visitors who do not want to drive through the creek crossing may park along the shoulder of Latrobe Road, cross on foot, and walk the remaining mile to the trailhead at Eagle Camp Corral.
All events are subject to weather conditions. Projected rain, high creek levels, or extremely muddy conditions on the Preserve may cancel the outing. Registered guests will be notified the evening prior via email and the event will be labeled as canceled on the website.
