Ascent Trip Report

Deer Creek Canyon Park has a few fun trails and hikes that provide extensive eastern views of the southern Denver metro and beyond. Though Plymouth is higher than Bill Couch Mountain, I don't think the views are quite as good. Still, as one of two summits with trails leading right to their tops, it's worth the trip. The hike through forests and small canyons is worth it, especially in the not too deep snow. Scramble up the pile of rocks at the summit for the best views over the trees.
