Description

On Rocky Ford Trail, a long, gentle slope leads down through the oak trees toward Deer Creek. In the spring, expect to see a multitude of wildflowers including spring beauty and Dutchman’s breeches. As the trail reaches the creek, it narrows and may be muddy or flooded following heavy rains. The trail name, Rocky Ford, describes the series of limestone shelves that cross the creek. This ford may have been a crossing on the Mormon Trail over 150 years ago. Today it is a favorite spot for visitors to take pictures and play in the creek. Large sycamore and cottonwood trees are mixed in among the oaks along with poison ivy and stinging nettle. The trail eventually joins Deer Run Trail and ends at the Lake Allaman spillway.
