The Deer Creek Reservoir section of the Provo/Jordan River Parkway Trail is an enjoyable hiking and walking trail along the west shore of the Deer Creek Reservoir. Although there is a highway on the other side, you hardly notice. This broad gravel path is part of the Provo River Parkway – Jordan River Parkway system. It runs the hillside above the northern shore of Deer Creek Reservoir. Length is 8.03 miles, with about 400 feet of total climbing. While mostly straight, there are occasional sharp turns during descents into small canyons. Make sure you bring water and a lunch plus a fishing pole.
