Deer Creek Falls is a remarkably easy to reach, yet entirely hidden waterfall situated just below where the Deer Creek Road crosses over the creek on its climb up to the Kelcema Lake trailhead. The falls spread out over a broad shelf and drop 33 feet in a wide, uniform horsetail type drop. Though it's literally a stones-throw away from the road, the thick immature tree growth lining the road prevents any sort of view of the falls, so even those who pass by knowning where the falls occur may have a hard time identifying the spot without getting out of the car.
- Deer Creek Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall.
- Known Alternate Names: Lower St. Louis Falls
Drive east along the Mountain Loop Highway for about 19 miles past the town of Granite Falls or about 7 miles past the turn off to the trailhead for Twin Falls to Deer Creek Road #4052, just past the Deer Creek Bridge. Drive up Road 4052 for 3 miles to where Deer Creek crosses under the road. Parking is afforded just beyond the creek on the left. Walk back down the road across the creek, and descend through the woods on the east side of the creek to reach the base of the falls - it's rather steep for the last 15-20 feet, but there are plenty of trees to use as hand holds and isn't terribly difficult going in the end.
