Very nice hike to the boulders and then I went back on the other fork that went along the stream with very nice waterfall to view and photograph. Good beginning to the many hikes that I did on my parts of 2 days venture.

Easy trail to Mill Creek and Barr Creek falls. Just stay on the main wide path and follow it to the right when you come to the first junction. There are signs, so you should find it. If you go left, it'll take you to the boulders. You can scramble down right before Mill Creek if you want to get closer but it is very steep. Worth it if you're able to get down there though. Otherwise, both falls are viewable from the main trail.

Easy, but not well marked trail. May not be super friendly for very young kids as I had to climb over several rocky areas to see mill creek falls. Barr creek falls was a clear hike with very little rocks along the way. Avenue of the boulders was great.

Tons of water flow in May. Tough that the viewpoint is so far away from the waterfall. I wonder if you can access the waterfall by way of the Rogue River. No mosquitoes, super light traffic, no snow: perfect May. Easy and well maintained trails although confusing at times.

Easy trail and good for kids. Okay view of the falls. Personally, i think the boulders were a nicer find and more scenic. But overall, nice little day hike. My only real complaint is that the signage isn’t all that great and could use some work. However, the area itself isn’t all that big so you can find your way around.

This is a nice, easy to hike area.

You can get a nice view of the waterfall but, in my opinion, the area with the boulders is much nicer. The boulders are giant and you get great views of the rapids.

I don’t think the area is marked very well, and signage could use some help, but it’s not a massive area so you should be able to find your way around.

Love this whole area. Plenty of different trails to choose from as well as a few different water fall sites.

Well maintained packed earth trail. View of falls is across the ravine with no access to falls themselves. Paired right next to Bar Creek Falls. The parking area is shaded.

Nice short hike to two views of two tall water falls. The trail is pretty steep, but it is worth it. Also check out Ave of the boulders. It gorgeous with boulders the size of semi trucks. Beautiful close up views of the rogue flowing over waterfalls. You can wade in a couple spots, though the water is pretty cold. It's a great place to explore and enjoy the beauty and power of the river.

Short easy and well maintained trail with views of two falls and large boulders near the river. Definitely worth the stop!

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

A fairly easy hike for most people. Nice shade and fun scenery. The dogs are able to enjoy it as well. Great place to stop, stretch legs and take in the view.

Only walked the trail to view Mill Creek Falls and Barr Creek Falls. Very easy hike, and the view point for the Barr Creek waterfall was gorgeous! Arrived later in the day and we were the only ones there. Quick and easy stop!
