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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

It's broken in some spots

This is a nice, easy to hike area.

You can get a nice view of the waterfall but, in my opinion, the area with the boulders is much nicer. The boulders are giant and you get great views of the rapids.

I don’t think the area is marked very well, and signage could use some help, but it’s not a massive area so you should be able to find your way around.

Super easy hike! Multiple falls and sights! My lazy 5 year old does it with ease!

Love this whole area. Plenty of different trails to choose from as well as a few different water fall sites.

the directions to here were horrible!! the road was completely blocked! we decided to just park in the open space and hike on the old road. never got to the start of the trail but did get too the rogue river. if you could find the correct way to get there, maybe it is an awesome hike. but it didn't work for us. i only give it 2 stars because the rogue river was beautiful, otherwise 1 star only because of the horrible gps not being updated.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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

an extremely easy hike and the two waterfalls that fall into the Rogue River are gorgeous.

This trail is currently only a 5 mile out and back. At 2.5 miles there are trail arrow markers on a tree telling you to make a U turn. I continued on the trail past the U turn sign, the trail was washed out landslide style in a couple places, a few downed trees and about 1/4 mile past the U turn sign the trail becomes completely impassable. I liked the trail that was available, great scenery, enough elevation change to make it an easy hike instead of just a walk.

love this hike.
