Awesome little hike to a beautiful waterfall. The road coming in had a lot of fallen trees but were cut out of the way and easy to get around.

The road has some trees down but was not blocked and they were easy to drive around. Nice short hike, a little steep on the way back up but pretty easy.

Few trees down but easily passable. Enjoyable hike with very little elevation gain. Kind of nice sometimes.

This trail is partially closed. you can go about a 1.5 half in, until you hit one of the bridges. Someone knocked the signs down, and you can still go across, by the looks of it, the second part of this trail is a little washed out, but not that bad. This hike is real easy. My three year old can do it easily. We went middle of May, and everything is gorgeous. Lots of blooming flowers. Only downside is if you get poison oak, there is A LOT, and would not recommend going. It has a nice view, as it follows along the water. For parents with little kiddos, you could probably take a stroller up until the second bridge where the signs say closed.

beautiful and quick hike had the kids, so descending to the base of the falls was a no go, will do it next time though.

Hiked this trail from Natural Bridge to Woodruff and back. April 26th, 2020. From the past winter, there are a few blow over trees on the trail. Some you can go around, some you'll have to climb over. Nothing that will make you want to turn around though. A lot of spots along the river for a great view. Getting to the falls was easy, but also easy to miss with no signage. When you get to the split in the trail, you are at the falls. Definitely would recommend this hike to my friends. The falls in April were roaring. So beautiful.

One of the most beautiful areas in Oregon. There is a vista after a short hike that offers a view of Barr Creek Falls and Mill Creek Falls. I highly recommend visiting Avenue of the Boulders as well which features the rushing Rogue River through a large granite field. Please hike with a personal locator beacon and preferably with a group - the area near Crater Lake has many unresolved missing persons cases.

This was a beautiful waterfall and a very easy hike...we did it with my eight year old when we were all sick haha.

I wish there were an easier way to get to the waterfall, but it’s an amazing view even without going down! (Didn’t go down this time, had two kids with me!) I didn’t know the trial went so far beyond the second fall.

2/16/20: always a good hike to do with kiddos!

Wonderful trail along the creek with little falls to follow. Right now there are a couple trees that are down on the trail that you’ll need to crawl over or climb.

I don’t know if blowdown and tree down are the same, but there are a few spots where there are trees blocking the trail that you have to crawl over or under. It didn’t ruin any of the experience though, this was an amazing trail and the waterfalls were breathtaking. It’s an easy trail and kids wouldn’t have any hard time at all. Easy to find as well. I can’t wait to go back in the summer!

Love love love this waterfall!!

Perfect short hike with kiddos! Beautiful waterfall!

It’s a good trail. Water was low so it wasn’t as pretty, but it was still a nice and easy hike. My eight year old did well and he’s on the lazier side haha. The bridge and after was closed due to dangerous trail, but we went anyways and it was fine.

very gorgeous trail, Blue Ridge bridge (?) was out due to unsafe conditions on the other side and I had to turn around but I am definitely coming back.

Beautiful views of the falls and a relatively easy walk, even for our senior dog.

Beautiful and easy hike. Love it!

This is one of my favorite hikes. It’s also referred to as the Upper Rogue River and Woodruff Bridge Trail. To find the trail head from the Natural Bridge parking area, head towards the footbridge and right before it look for a trail on the left. It’s easy to miss. There’s a sign that says Upper Rogue River Trail Number 1034. This is it. After about a mile and a half, you’ll reach a split—go right to the Knob Falls viewing point, go left to continue on to Woodruff Bridge. In October, you’ll see lots of fall foliage and lots of different kind of mushrooms. The best fall foliage will be seen between Knob Falls and Woodruff Bridge, so go all the way down if you have time. It’s an easy trail, with the only incline being on the way back from Woodruff Bridge. My total distance in addition to the Knob Falls Viewpoint was around 7 miles.
