Deer Creek and Saint Johns Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"An incredibly fun trail to drive with some of Colorado’s best scenery. You won’t be able to stop taking pictures. A side trip provides the easiest access to the top of Radical Hill where there’s a good chance to see mountain goats. I was able to get within 50 feet of a molting herd. Locals tell me this is a common occurrence. This whole area is very popular for dirt bikes and ATVs. You can unload at a large parking area. Unlicensed vehicles are not allowed on county roads so don’t ride through town of Montezuma. Many riders also come up through Handcart Gulch. This trail has a few sections that are borderline difficult, however, the trail is commonly traveled by stock, high-clearance SUVs. Low-range gearing is required. I do not recommend this trail for novice drivers."
