The North Fork Deep Creek Trail begins from the Suce Creek Trailhead in Paradise Valley. The trail follows the north rim of the forested, creek-fed canyon to the head of Elephanthead Mountain and its dramatic rock cliffs at the edge of the open tundra. The strenuous route never comes near the creek, but it leads to spectacular backcountry. The trail heads into the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness through mixed forests and flower-laden meadows, traveling eastward to overlooks of the weather-sculpted rock formations, the surrounding mountain peaks, and the expansive valleys. Just south of Elephanthead Mountain is Blacktail Lake, with a connecting trail to Davis Creek and the West Boulder drainage.
