Well maintained packed earth trail. View of falls is across the ravine with no access to falls themselves. Paired right next to Bar Creek Falls. The parking area is shaded.

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.

Very interesting and informative. You can see the river, trees, waterfalls and awesome lava tubes.

Decent hike that took the better part of a day. Sadly, the views from the lookout and surrounding trails were severely limited by wild fires.

Nice kid-friendly hike to both Mill Creek Falls and Avenue of Boulders.

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.

Nice short hike to two views of two tall water falls. The trail is pretty steep, but it is worth it. Also check out Ave of the boulders. It gorgeous with boulders the size of semi trucks. Beautiful close up views of the rogue flowing over waterfalls. You can wade in a couple spots, though the water is pretty cold. It's a great place to explore and enjoy the beauty and power of the river.

Beautiful hike! I just had a bad experience when I did it... about 2 miles in I realized I had about 20 ticks on me... I immediately turned around and had to keep stopping to wipe of at least that many again and again... go when it's been hot long enough to kill most of them off. Or soak yourself in deet. It's is very pretty!

We started this hike at Woodruff Bridge which made it a 4 mile out and back hike which was just right for the first hike of the season! Parts of the trail are slightly covered by overgrown plants but besides that it was a very enjoyable easy hike. Any skill level could do this hike, there's a very slight elevation change and there are a couple of spots next to the river to break and/or take pics! The Gorge is absolutely beautiful and you can hear it from about a half mile away. You can continue to the left side and climb down on the boulders to get closer to the edge. Very cool hike, would do it again for sure! Make sure you bring bug spray!!!

Short easy and well maintained trail with views of two falls and large boulders near the river. Definitely worth the stop!
