Deer Creek -- Catch Pen South Trail Map - in progress
Hiking Around Las Vegas, Mount Charleston Area, Lee Canyon

The southern portion of the Deer Creek -- Catch Pen South Trail is a 7.0-mile trail that starts along Deer Creek Road and runs generally downhill to end along Lee Canyon Road, requiring two vehicles. This is a long downhill run to an old corral, and from there the trail winds up and down and around the landscape where horses have created a considerable number of game-trails that confuse hikers. This is a good place to use GPS waypoints in order to stay on the right combination of trails, but then again, confused hikers can just walk a bit farther while trying to find a way.
