Distance: Two miles out and back
Elevation gain: 600 feet
Time: One hour out and back with stops for photos, water and admiring the beautiful creek (give yourself more time if you want to keep going on the Centerville Canyon trail).
Trail: Don't let the noise from the Centerville ATV Park or nearby rifle range fool you. Pretty soon dirt bikes and Motley Crue blasting from some dude's Jeep will give way to the sound of tiny creatures darting into bushes and the creek's rushing water. The trail is pretty narrow to start and bleeds into the canyon's cliff wall, so stay alert.
Who you'll see: Solo hikers, couples and some dogs. Paragliders way above you.
How to get there: Go north on I-15 and get off on the Parrish Lane exit in Centerville. Make a right on Parrish Lane, right on 400 East then left on 100 South. Drive till you reach a hill that's forested on both sides and drive up. Turn right when you hit the dirt road, and follow the road to the ATV Park and turn left. The trailhead will be on your left.
Notable: Pretty sturdy logs crisscross the creek along the way, but sometimes you'll find several stones and blocks of wood instead. You will get your feet wet. The dirt road to the trail has trucks hauling dirt bikes from the ATV Park during the day. To avoid dust and potential rock chips, park in the neighborhood down on 100 South and hike your way up to the trail head. We actually recommend it for an extra workout and incredible views of the valley along the way. The Deuel Creek South trail eventually meets the Deuel Creek North trail to create the Centerville Canyon Trail. Once you reach this fork, you can turn around to head back to your car, loop back on Deuel Creek North or keep on going.
Apres-hike: Centerville has ice cream, frozen custard, frozen yogurt, smoothies and shaved ice places, but it's definitely not a bar town. Instead, grab a Sam Adams and Bistro Burger at Iggy's Sports Grill, 782 W. Parrish Lane.
