Could not find the TH for this one... It was going to be my last hike of a 2 day venture. Next time maybe.

the directions for this are terrible through all trails. it's easier to reach trail 1034 to woodruff bridge from the natural bridge hike. start out at the natural bridge scenic area parking lot. start out on the trail head for scenic, and shortly on the left you will see a wooden sign/ trail marker for woodruff bridge trail 1034. taking this trail will take you to knob falls. then you can swing back and go on a very short hike to see the natural bridge lava the formation.
the directions listed by all trails takes you down a much more complex trail which I found out was blocked by downed trees.

Pretty views, short hike. Was a little confused because maps took us to a Natural Bridge Hike, I never did see anything about Knob Falls. Maybe we took the wrong trail, still really enjoyed it though.

Beautiful near Knob Falls, and with sure footing and awareness, you can get right up next to them. That does require navigating down a steep hillside (and the "fun" part--climbing back up!). The mossy rocks there and the mist made it a lovely lunch spot for us. The rest of the trail is fairly level and scenic, no real elevation gain and plenty of shade. Nice views of the river; we caught sight of some deer taking a swim.

May 5, 2013 with a temperature of 75 degrees and slightly cloudy- I started at The Natural Bridge and hiked 3.5 miles along the Rogue River to Woodruff Bridge, then back again for a total of 7 miles. The trail was easy with just a little elevation gain. A few trees had fallen across the trail, but were easy to step over. Knob Falls is about half way between the 2 points. The water moves swiftly and if you get down near the bottom, the rocks were covered with moss. Most of the moss was dry so I was able to get quite close to the edge. I do not recommend that for children or if you arent sure of your footing. I didn't use any bug spray and did not end up with any mosquito bites. My friend sprayed her legs and still got 2 bites.
