Deer Creek Falls is a nice little waterfall, consisting of 2 main drops of 10 ft. and 30 ft. into a beautiful swimming hole. In fact, Deer Creek drops rather steeply through this little canyon just outside the little town called Rough and Ready, near Grass Valley. A number of swimming holes can be found along this creek here. The waterfall is much more interesting early in the spring. But the swimming holes would be more interesting later in the summer. My brother-in-law and I went here on July 4, and the waterfall was still flowing nicely.
