Deer Creek Waterfalls and Pools

excellent, beginner, kid safe, dog friendly, clothes optional.  From Grass Valley, take Hwy 20 towards Marysville. Turn right at the intersection of Hwy 20 and Pleasant Valley Road.  Follow Pleasant Valley Road to Bitney Springs Road and turn right.  Two miles (by my odometer) you will come to the Intersection of Bitney Springs and North Ponderosa Road.  Turn right on North Ponderosa and go over a small rise (about 500 yards) and you will see a North Ponderosa road going down the hill into the brush.  Find a parking place here.  North Ponderosa road down hill is abandoned and on private property.  You will come to a gate at about another 300 yards down the road, continue on.  You will be able to see shortly after crossing the gate Deer Creek Waterfalls and Pools.  When the road starts to flatten out start looking for a trail to the right down.  If you walk all the way to were the road crosses Deer Creek you have missed the trail.  Total walking time to Deer Creek Waterfalls and Pools, approximately 35 minutes.  GPS N 39*14.800', W 121*08.756' * = degrees  Map: Dear Creek/Deer Creek Falls.   Pictures Dear Creek area.
