  • Deer Grove West: Nice and woodsy, but the trails are not nearly as well maintained as Deer Grove East. No real toilets or water even at trail head that I saw. I might check out other areas to see if they're better. Far less popular than East though, which is a bonus for me.
  • The park is split into two ares by Quentin road. Deer Grove East is more opened and has a couple of ponds with a divers wildlife. This part of the park has paved trails and is perfect for high speed cycling. The other part of the park is fully covered with trees and most of the trails are not paved and is perfect for mountain bikes and summer hiking as the forest creates lots of shade.
