Daytrip - Deer Creek Picnic Area & Cougar Trail

07/27/18 Hike Notes: On 07/27/2018, Bob Croke, Ron Ziance, Jim Herring and I decided to take a leisurely walk off of Deer Creek Road (NV-158) in the Mt. Charleston Recreation Area. The Deer Creek Picnic Area is located in the middle of the Deer Creek Canyon, a deep, narrow canyon in a Pine-Fir forest with a small, perennial creek that cuts a rocky, narrow canyon down the steep flanks of Mummy Mountain.
