The Deer Haven Trail is the name given to an unmaintained network of game trails that see frequent human contact. A small alcove of trees, known as Deer Haven, is located about 3 miles west of the trailhead. Deer Haven stands out from the surrounding area due to the Junipers in this alcove, which are visible for miles.
