Deer Ridge Junction: Deer Mountain Trail

Rocky Mountain National Park

Deer Mountain caps a massive, divisive ridge between Beaver Meadows (south), and Horseshoe Park (northwest). This relatively short hike follows a well-maintained trail through ponderosa parks, aspen stands, and subalpine forests to the summit, which rises just above all other points on the ridge. The trail's southern exposure clears it of snow longer than many others in the Park, extending accessibility from late spring to early winter.
