This was a great hike on a beautiful day, with lots of gorgeous views. There are some steep parts, and some downhills, so expect to get your heartrate going! We did the extended loop, and got off track a few times due to lack of direction, but got back en route easily. Pay attention to the app, and don't go through any gates. Enjoy!

I love this hike. Have done it many times. Since a new development went in at the old trail head, there is no parking there. However, the new trailhead is just below it, no worries. You can park there. To get to Deep Lake, you have 2 choices. Start where you parked, or walk up the road about 5 minutes and start at the old trailhead. If you're in good shape and want to get the heart rate pumping right off the hop, start where you parked. It gets steep fast! And stays relatively steep for a kilometer or so. The other route is easier. There is a steep section, but it is not as long. The little lake presents itself to you at the top. You can walk around it in 15-20 minutes, but take your time. There's fish and birds to watch, flowers to appreciate. Often I've seen deer up there. You can do the loop and come back down the trail you chose not to start at. If you're ambitious, you can carry on your hike and follow the Community Grasslands Trail all the way to McQueen Lake! I read it's 13 km away, but I'm pretty sure it's further than that. According to the scale provided at the trail head, it looks closer to 25-28 km one way! Bring lots of water. Another way to extend this hike is to walk halfway around the lake, then find the trail which is on the land side of the lake (not the steeper mountain side) and follow it away from Deep Lake, keeping the lush little valley always on your right. The natural contours of the land and the trail your on will slowly bring you down into that little valley. The trail will bring you around the large hill to your left (it wiil always be on your left) and you will eventually come out near the bottom of the easier of the 2 trails I mentioned in the beginning. Taking this route will add another 40-60 minutes and is well worth it! Enjoy this little gem found right within our city!!

Great Lake for fishing if you pack in a belly boat. Usually fairly quieter than most spots. Great place.
