  • Along the Rogue Umpqua scenic viewpoint this is a good stop--two tall falls in one trail. It's a short hike--maybe half mile or so, to the falls. Follow the signs to Mill Creek falls and then...  more »
  • Once you make it to the Mill Creek Falls view point, continue on the trail to your right and in about 50 yards you'll reach Barr Falls view point. Which is very pretty, more so then Mill Creek.  more »
  • Absolutely breathtaking. When you first get done to the trail you can go left that takes you to the Avenue Boulders or you go right that takes you over to the waterfall and we spent her whole time over at the Avenue Boulders we were there until evening time fell... next time the falls!
  • Three falls in one park! Great views, suggest seeing Pearsony Falls first, the only restrooms are there at PF trailhead, including the slightly technical cliffside hike, over to the top of Mill Creek Falls. This 2019 spring, they are thumping. Avenue of the Boulders was fun to climb around, offering more of a challenge for you, if walking the short-easy falls trails is not enough of a workout for you. Expect a little elevation change, but the all the falls trails are well maintained for persons with a moderate physical challenge. Bring water, and a snack, easy to spend a few hours there if you see everything. Did not pick up much trash, though the spray paint on some of the avenue boulders is sad.
