Taking note of trail options on the right to explore later, cross the bridge, pass the picnic site at Deep Creek, and continue on the Centennial Trail up the hill. At 1.1 miles, turn right and hike the road that leads 0.4 mile to the Deep Creek Overlook. Enjoy the views of unique basalt formations and down into Deep Creek Canyon."

"Hike through mostly ponderosa pine forest above Deep Creek Canyon and take in the view of the rugged canyon and lava flows from Deep Creek Overlook. Then descend to the Centennial Trail next to Nine Mile Reservoir. Soon leave the broad, paved Centennial Trail and climb through the lava and jagged rock pinnacles to the forested bench above the west side of Deep Creek Canyon, and follow it back to the trailhead. The hike description here may seem complicated because of the many trail junctions on this route. Watch the map closely as you hike, and the directions will become much simpler." Read more

I hike this trail about 2 times a month just becuase its so close. The other reviewer state that it can be confusing, this is accurate but once you get your bearings and do a little trial and error it all makes sence. Thats what hikings all about... The trail stays pretty cool and can be steep at times but for the most part are easy enough for childeren. I would add that taking shorter routes are avalible and sometimes more enjoyable, like the one that cuts down through the basalt spires to the deep creek bridge, very cool. Also walk down deep creek from the bridge and you might find hidden caynons and cavelike spots that are very neat to explore.

Had a great time on this day hike. Can be confusing at certain points because all trails have numbers which are not used in the directions, must have been made before they were added. Near the overlook is tricky because of many downed trees covering the trail.

The trail is not very well marked, especially in the middle part of the hike. It is beautiful, once you figure out the correct way to go, but i found the directions not quite accurate. Plus, the trails are marked by numbers, and so it is difficult to figure out where you are going. I would do it again, though, because this time i know where i'm going.
