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.

Absolutely love this trail. I take anyone that comes and visits me from out of town to this spot. By far one of my top 5 favs so far on the north umpqua.

I wish people would heed the leash rules for their dogs. The falls were wonderful, a bit mucky in places.

Lovely hike and waterfall! The distance is nice for families with little ones or people that want an easy hike. When you reach the waterfall, you can get right up to it and feel the spray on your face. Which is delightful on a hot day. The only downside for me was the amount of people and trying to find parking when it's so busy.

My wife and I live just off the 138 in east roseburg. We are having a great time exploring these many trails out here in our big backyard. This one was one of our favorites. Our 4 year old son made it with us without too much complaining. We went on up to the forest service road above the falls before coming back down. There are some areas where a fall for kids is possible. keep an eye on them, hold there hand through those sections. Great fun though. We liked being able to get right under the falls and my boy liked the walk through the cleft in the rock early in the hike. We will be back to do this one again sometime.

They really cleaned this trail up! Road to the trailhead fine, and trail in good shape. Lovely falls and worth checking out the rock garden. Walking through the boulder a definite plus!

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.

Absolutely beautiful !

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.
