Snowshoe Deer Creek Canyon Park

Rate this Adventure Colorado Deer Creek Canyon Park

Added by Jason Hatfield

Snowshoe in a powder-filled mountain forest close to Denver.

Deer Creek Canyon Park offers up to 13 miles of wind-sheltered trails perfect for enjoying after a fresh snow. The Plymouth Mountain Trail offers steep climbs and big views while Homesteader Trail offers the best forest scenery in the Denver area. The recommended route is Plymouth Creek Trail to Homesteader Trail and back. The climb up the canyon from the TH can be steep and icy so more aggressive snowshoes work best. More info on the park can be found here.
