Enjoy a scenic, accessible and family friendly hike along Deer Creek Reservoir from the dam to Soldier Hollow.

While driving East, the turnoff to the trailhead is just left of the dam. There is a size-able parking lot and rest rooms available. The hike itself is a dirt path and easy to follow. Access to the water's edge is restricted until you are 1500 feet past the dam. Though the trail is designed for biking, equestrian use and hiking, it is also a great location for trail running. It is also great for cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Winter.

I recommend hitting the trail in the early morning to catch the sun rising over the Wasatch Mountains. Do the trail in the Winter months to see less people.

Note: The trail is only for non-motorized use. Dogs are also not allowed on the trail.
