Deer Creek trail is a lightly traveled trail with great views of the Spanish Peaks. Deer Lake is full of fish. The trail to Deer Lake is steep and rocky in some places. The views of the Spanish Peaks and wildlife make it worth the effort. Deer lake is over 9000 feet and is full of fish.

Tough trail for sure, but the lake is gorgeous. Watched a moose getting a drink while I caught my breath.

The trail is a little washed out but the views make up for it.
