Pearsoney Falls is a rather small 12' waterfall less than a quarter mile 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.

loved this hike!! First time on this trail brought my 5 year old and 2 year old. It was nice to be able to put my 2 year old down for majority of the hike. They only big issue I ran in to was where the map states where the trail head is. spent half an hour walking around with my kids before giving up and just going to mill creek. luckily Mill creek has a giant map that showed us where it was at. So if you go there it's about a mile after the bridge heading into town on Mill Creek Rd. Not at the bridge where this map has it marked.

Beautiful falls, you can hike further if desired to avenue of the boulders, which are falls as well. Easy path and very shaded. There is even a bathroom at the trail head.

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.

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
