The Town of Deer Trail is a Statutory Town in eastern Arapahoe County, Colorado, United States. As of the 2010 census, its population was 546. Deer Trail is situated along Interstate 70, approximately 55 miles (89 km) east of Denver.

Deer Trail was founded when the Kansas Pacific Railway built a station in what is now Deer Trail in 1870. The town was platted by the railway in 1875 and soon became a shipping point for grain, livestock, and eggs. By the late 1920s Deer Trail grew into a town larger than it is today with two banks, five grocery stores, and three hotels. The Great Depression of the 1930s took a major toll on the town's economy, and a further blow took place in June 1965 when a devastating flood destroyed or severely damaged the businesses along main street. Many of these buildings were never rebuilt. Deer Trail hosted the first rodeo exhibition on July 4, 1869.

In 2013, the town was considering an ordinance that would create drone hunting licenses and offer bounties for unmanned aerial vehicles.

Deer Trail is located at 39°36′57″N 104°2′35″W / 39.61583°N 104.04306°W / 39.61583; -104.04306 (39.615888, -104.042967). According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 1.1 square miles (2.8 km2), of which 0.0039 square miles (0.01 km2), or 0.40%, is water.
