Deer Peak Road runs between Ophir Creek Road on the south and Little Froze on the north. The trail begins by offering views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains before entering the dense mixed conifers of the San Isabel Forest. The trail passes just below the 11,500-foot summit of Deer Peak, home to two cellphone towers. Coming down from the peak is slightly more difficult than the climb up. The Forest Service is removing trees that could change the trail's dynamics. Overall the trail is not very ascetically pleasing, but if combined with the other trails in the area, it could make for a full day of trail riding through the San Isabel National Forest. The MVUM states it's open from 05/01 - 12/01.

There are a few campsites along the trail. The sites are relatively small, with enough room for 2-3 vehicles.
