Deer Creek Slot Canyon Flow
After a steep half mile tail from the river, the trail levels out following a slot canyon along narrow precipices above the twisting Deer Creek cascading falls that always flow through it.
Of the many side canyon tributaries that drain into the Colorado River from the Grand Canyon, Deer Creek is a stream that flows through the western Grand Canyon and is fed by a series of springs providing a continuous base flow to creek. During periods of intense rainfall, It can experience severe flash flooding. In the final half mile above the Colorado River, Deer Creek flows through a narrow slot canyon before plunging over a 150 feet waterfall named Deer Creek Falls.
