Prospect State Scenic Viewpoint, is a state park south of the community of Prospect on Oregon Route 62 in Jackson County, in the U.S. state of Oregon.

A hydroelectric dam was built in the 1920s which drained the narrow valley containing the group of falls. A group of large boulders appeared. These have become a local attraction known as the Avenue of the Giant Boulders.

Mill Creek Falls reviews
Nice peaceful short hike to see two falls. It was great that were flowing good in September. Not always the case with waterfalls in the fall. Worth a stop.

Semi-easy trail and it was well worth the walk for the view!!! We were able to view 2 waterfalls and The Avenue of the Boulders.

Absolutely stunning falls! The trail to the falls is easy and pretty short, you can hear them from the parking area. And even though it's not a long hike, it's gorgeous and so worth the drive. I could sit and watch and listen to the roaring of the falls for days. Perfect serenity. And if you're feeling like getting a bite to eat after, just continue up Hwy 62 to Beckie's Cafe for a perfect slice of pie or whatever suits your fancy 😉
Pretty neat place. I visited in August it was very dry and pretty hot. The falls are a short walk from the parking lot with a very easy slope. The view is across a canyon so you can't make it to the bottom. The avenue of boulders was worth the little walk as well
