Deer Creek Canyon Park is a close-to-home escape for residents of the south Denver metro area. With Plymouth Mountain and Bill Couch Mountain separated by Plymouth Creek, the hike winds through both open meadows and a cool narrow canyon. This out-and-back journey climbs up to a rocky point where views of South Valley Park’s ?atirons and hogback contrast with Denver’s skyscrapers beyond. Over half of the hike is on hikers-only trails. Colorful wild?owers and shrubs burst forth in spring. Deer Creek Canyon Park is a great place for a hike and picnic.
