Hiked this trail on 1-15-17. From Corvallis and was staying in Prospect as part of a family vacation to check out Crater Lake. Saw the parking lot of this place on my way to the store and went to check it out. It's a fairly steep downhill trail and I did it in pajamas and basketball shoes in the snow! Loved it! Cool waterfall. Awesome view! Wish I could've gotten to the bottom of it. I posted pictures! Definitely worth it. Follow my adventures on Instagram @ Robdoesitall
We got to the trailhead without issues and there were no bugs. BUT! the trail disintegrated into deep sandy gullies and huge logs which became insurmountable at about 1 1/2 miles in. Too dangerous! Needs major restoration. Do not recommend, especially if you value your health.
It's a short easy hike. A wide trail. I've hiked the area for a while but didn't realize that the waterfall was there. February 2013 I hiked further down the trail along the Rogue river. There were some amazing trees in that area that didn't appear to have any bark. The area is along the avenue of Boulders. If you have small children with you I'd advise not to go past the falls. The area along the Rogue is steep and has a sheer drop off to a class V rapids on the Rogue
