Family Friendly Easy trail for kids of all ages.

Description

From the south, the Mule Deer Trail begins near the terminus of the South Trail and ends to the north on a dirt road next to the main trailhead. The terrain is mostly intermediate with some short climbs and a downhill section before reaching the trailhead.

From the parking area, riders can continue on the Ford Canyon Trail or take a right onto the Wildlife trail which leads to a wildlife pond next to a windmill.
