Hike to this majestic waterfall along the North Umpqua River. The trails wind through old-growth forests of Douglas-fir, hemlock, and sugar pine, with trees often over six feet in diameter. The crown jewel of the hike is majestic Fall Creek Falls, which is a great place to swim in the summer time. You can get a view of Fall Creek Falls from the bottom, as well as another mid way up the falls, as well as a view from the top, as the trail leads up the canyon next to the waterfall.

Beautiful trails, easy to get to. Did this hike after work, a good 15-20 min walk in. Waterfall was small but fantastic.

I stopped here with my husband after we stopped at Susan Creek Falls. This trail seemed moderate for us due to the fact that we are out of shape. The little narrow rock formation that you walk through is cool! The waterfall was low with water when visited on the 6th. Nice though!

Needed to burn some time so hit up some trails along the diamond lake hwy. It's nice but very crowded and that's to be expected when it's right off the hwy. Did really like the very large rocks.

Beautiful trail. I hiked it the beginning of August. The rock formations were amazing and the creek/fall were just the same.

A very easy hike, good for kids and dogs. You'll not be able to get your heart rate up on this one. Still, lovely ferns, fungi, moss, and a shady canopy make for a Edenic, quiet, meditative walk. There was nobody on the trail when I was there, and the falls were full and furious from the recent rains.

Went with some work buddies on a Tuesday afternoon. We wanted an easy hike with great scenery and that is what we got. There were people there but it wasn't crowded. The falls were in great shape. The train was easy to follow and well maintained. Defiantly a great hike for anyone.

A good family hike in three stages each with a different perspective of the falls. The top of the trail ends on a forest service road..

This is a nice hike with the kids. You have pretty nice views most of the way as your following the creek up toward the falls. The falls are real nice at the end and fairly safe to meander around in the pool if warm enough. I wouldn't take the little side trip up to Jobs Garden however. I wish I knew a little more of the significance of it. It was basically a pile of smallish rocks. I think it may have been an Indian burial ground (maybe?) which would add to the intrigue a bit. Last time I hiked up to it and rounded the bend near the end a couple of teens were quickly zipping up clothes with red faces....hehe...Must have thought it was The Garden of Eden rather than Jobs Garden.

This easy 0.9 mile (one way) trail leads through a crevice of volcanic rock (basalt), winding through old growth timber and lush forest - leading up to a double falls of 35 and 50 feet in height. The elevation gain is 1300 feet from trail head to the overlook. The trail is clearly marked and trail is well maintained - a little muddy at times. The viewing platform is amazing, a great place to view the falls and a nice location to end the hike.
