  • -9 degrees snowshoeing up to Deer leap unbelievable snow covered trees so gorgeous
  • Such an amazing hike well worth it and it's short.
  • I did the Deer Leap Trail from Gifford Woods and the AT in July 2016. Terrific scenery, fantastic woods. Watch for the occasional bear! It was only after I hiked it I found I could trek it from Rt. 4. I may try that this year. The scene from up top is well worth it.
  • Hiked it many times. Spectacular views of course and fairly easy hike. Great benefit/work ratio.
