Nice hike with my wife and one year old son. Just a lot of downed trees which made it difficult with kid carrier. But worth it.

One of, if not the hardest trail I've done here. '76 trail in Spearfish Canyon is near the same difficulty. When you're hiking up don't forget to turn around and take in the amazing view. The top has a fantastic view of Harney Peak and Little Devils Tower. I recommend wearing pants or else your legs will get tore up. If you do the hike, have fun!

My kids (5&8) and I completed this trail on May 17, 2015. This is a great trail for all ages. Trail conditions were a little bit wet, due to heavy snow falls a week prior. The creek was running full steam and the waterfalls was beautiful.. Quite a few down trees from the winter storms and Highwinds, we just call these obstacles and more of an venture.

Deerfield Lake Loop Trail

Just a great hike! Did not expect much at first but the longer we went the better it got. Lots of vegetation changes and views of this beautiful lake. Went past some great primitive camping site one guy out fishing in an inflatable. Lake is stocked with trout limit one. Somehow this turned into about a 14 miler and as mentioned the trail
Markings while generally good get sketchy in places. We lost the trail once and had to follow a fence line to
Regain. Not much elevations but overall fun!

Great for hiking, not for mountain biking due to terrain and inclines and numerous gate crossings. Very pretty view. Occasionally not well marked. Plan on a full day
