Deep Creek Bench Loop

Deep Creek Bench Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike the open forests on the benches above Deep Creek and Coulee Creek Canyons. This geologically interesting hike combines several different trails, keeping the hiker on his or her toes at the many junctions.

The hike description below may seem complicated due to the many trail junctions on this route. Watch the map closely as you hike, and the directions will become much simpler. There is adequate parking but no restrooms at the Pine Bluff Trailhead. The elevation at the trailhead is 1,840 feet."

"The Deep Creek Overlook Loop hike is interesting geologically as well as very scenic. Allow longer than you generally would for a 2.4-mile hike so you can take the time to enjoy these features. Bicycles are also allowed and are the most common traffic on the Centennial Trail portion of this loop. The wide spot just before reaching the gate is the trailhead parking area. There are no other facilities at the trailhead. This trailhead, at 1,820 feet elevation, is also used as an entrance and exit point for the Centennial Trail." Read more

The walk down to the overlook is fairly short and easy, on a dirt road. If you're up for lengthening your walk, continue down the paved trail till it meets up with the Centennial Trail. From there it is about 1.5 miles either way to the next overlook; left to Nine Mile Dam, right to McLellan Overlook.
