Pearsoney Falls is a rather small 12' waterfall no more than 1/4 upriver from the more notable Mill Creek and Barr Creek Waterfall. Although that should not discourage you from taking the short hike if you are in the area. The park gate closes at dusk and may not be easily accessible during the snowy part of the year.

Nicely maintained trail, packed earth. Trail is well shaded and the falls are worth the short hike. If you continue down the trail, it will lead you to an overview of the a class 5 section rapids on the Rogue River. Day use parking, no fee, a couple picnic tables at parking lot.

Nicely maintained trail. Close to the water in some parts over looks the giant boulders in others. Dog friendly

Beautiful trail that is really great for kids! If you continue on the trail it eventually leads to the top viewpoint of Mill Creek Falls.

Great easy hike, if you keep going past the first set of falls there is what I call a rock falls. Very beautiful!

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
