Lovely trail for those who like flatter hikes. It follows an active flume system. The trail starts downhill if you can call it that. There is moderate tree cover which is nice on a warm day. The path goes through a lot of private land so out of respect for the locals stay on the trail. You'll hear lots of birds while you walk. There are also some nice big new growth trees. I imagine it would be a great trail for kids. Also AllTrails just lists a portion of the trail. The Deer Creek Tribute Trail does run all of the way back to Nevada City. On that portion there is more of a variance of terrain and a handsome bridge over the creek.

My favorite trail. You get to see the river and the hike is so beautiful! The birds were chirping and it is pure serenity!

We'll maintained and very clean. Just minutes outside Nevada City it made for a nice afternoon hike with the wife & dogs. Also a couple of cool brew pubs only minutes away.

This trail is easy, not moderate. It is largely a completely flat walk along an NID ditch with stunning views of people's back yards. If you take the left hand arm you walk down hill for a minute or two to Deer Creek and can cross it and walk a brief loop through the woods on the other side.

Trail starts on the edge of Town (Nevada City) and follows along the Deer Creek. Good bird watching.
