Nice little hike. Off the grid so could not record.

Crazy little crowded spot worth seeing. A lot of water going through a fairly small slot. It was the last little trail of a 2 day journey done on the way out. Met some nice people along the way.

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

Not much for a trail but awesome in it's uniqueness. Not many things in nature this awesome that you can view with a nice protected by fences short walk that most people can do.

Beautiful short hike to a nice waterfall and then farther on to another interesting almost falls where the water travels through the boulders.

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.

Amazing hike...family friendly and great views. Took our 3yr old and she loved it

Wonderful view

good and easy trail to do with young children. we took our dog as well. the trail to isn't marked well, but from the parking lot head to the left and you will reach the falls.

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.

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.

Nice stroll on our way to Crater Lake from Medford, the paved trail along the Rogue Gorge was formed by collapsing lava tubes from Mt. Mazama. Nice trees, interpretive signs, and a raging river that creates a nice cool breeze is worth a quick stop.

Beautiful paved trail, great for kids and novice hikers. Dog friendly. Parking lot at the trail head with restrooms, but no sinks. The paved part of the trail ends after the natural bridge overlook, but remains easy and beautiful.

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.

awesome hike. I'm a novice hiker and this hike I did with very little effort. very little incline. got down to the water to take some nice pictures of the falls.

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.

Great paved trail, even accessible for someone in a wheelchair. Falls are beautiful and the lava tunnel (natural bridge) that sucks the water one place and rushes it out another is awesome to see. Never seen anything like that before!

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.

start at river bridge entrance, the abbot rd entrance is completely overgrown after .25mile mark. Unless youre bringing a machete or battleaxe forget it, you'll be fighting Ents on your way to Isengard.

the natural bridge trail is cool, around 2 miles you can hike out on a horn right above a waterfall for sweet pics and spot for a beer.

great scenery awesome waterfalls nice easy little hike with the family. my eight-year-old did great wife was taking pictures the whole time but loved it lots of shade I would definitely recommend

It's a nice trail for kids and dogs. Pretty going along the lake. There are ticks but they are every where.. I recommend it to lots of people...

Super close to the road, so easy to access. Incredibly powerful river as it runs through its own canyon. Rogue Gorge Falls upstream is an awesome sight: so powerful. Fence separates the canyon from trail, safe for dogs and kids.

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.

Beautiful hike along the Rogue River from Woodruff Bridge to Natural Bridge. Very easy hike with lots of awesome views of the river! We did the round trip - 7 miles total.

Nice trail with beautiful moss covered boulders. Wildflowers are just starting to bloom. Pearsoney falls is gorgeous and accessible.

Haven't been yet...I've researched this trail and it is impassible due to the fire that caused washout a couple of years ago. With that said, I believe the only way to reach this falls now is via the Stuart falls trail off of the PCT near Crater Lake which makes it a very long hike!

Beautiful!

Gorgeous!
