Deer Creek Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop on the east side of the rugged and remote Galiuro Mountains from the Deer Creek Trailhead starts on the Paddys River Trail and then uses the Rattlesnake Canyon Trail to reach the old Powers Garden ranch site. The loop returns on the Deer Creek Trail.

Hike clockwise so that you encounter the fainter trails early in the loop. Return is then on the more heavily used Deer Creek Trail. Trails in the Galiuro Mountains in general are little-used and may be faint and overgrown with brush. You should have the USGS topo, which shows all the trails on the loop."
