Deer Fence Trail is named for the tall wire fence erected to keep the wildlife out of the gardens of the homes below.
One leg goes due north the other goes south. There is little elevation gain or shade along these trails.

The Canyon trail climbs a narrow canyon east of Providence. It starts at the mouth of Providence Canyon at 5100 feet elevation. The trailhead is 800 feet up the gravel road. Watch for a path leading to a wooden bridge on your right. It's hidden by the roadside maples, so it's easy to miss. Go across the creek to the track on the other side.


There are some flat or downhill sections as you head east in the canyon. The trail parallels the creek, it will occasionally grab extra altitude by climbing up the hill through climbing turns or switchbacks. Most of the trail is in dense maple forest. The trail crosses to the creek and the gravel road several times and terminates in a quarry.
Listen for waterfalls.
