“Connector trail between Deer Creek Canyon Park and South Valley Park.”— David Bolt
From the Deer Creek Canyon parking lot, travel north and uphill along a wide trail that leads to the picnic areas along the north side of the park at about 6,100 feet. At the top of the hill, veer right onto singletrack and down the north side of the hill on a winding path toward Deer Creek Canyon Road. The singletrack ends at Grizzly Drive.
Turn left and follow the west shoulder of Grizzly Drive to Deer Creek Canyon. Cross Deer Creek Canyon and look for the Rattlesnake Gulch Trail sign on the north side of the road just to the west of Grizzly Drive. Continue on the trail toward Grazing Elk Trail.
