Points of Interest

1. Deem Hills Park

It's not all about hiking :) Very nice facilities are here as well with a large parking lot, nice playground equipment, ramadas and restrooms, and several large fields. You may want to head out here just for a picnic with the family.

2. Watch for the cut-through!

Don't make my mistake and follow the wide, groomed path around. Look for the trail to the north and follow the cut-through to the circumference trail.

3. Summit

Not a very high one but it does give you some nice views of the area all the same. There are actually a few different vantage points up here so have fun checking out the different angles.

4. Choices

Many trails interconnect in this area so know be aware of where you want to go. You can head up either hill or around either side.
