Wonderful easy walk. Park at Woodruff bridge. Gorge starts about 1.5 mile from Woodruff bridge so you can walk as little as 3 miles and enjoy the river from calm to raging.

A quick and easy hike to beautiful scenery!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Gorgeous!

Watch out for bears! Dad and sisters talked me into condemned lookout tower...rickety...don't do it!

Great hike!

Great for kiddos...my Love proposed here!

Good Hike, river is basically by your side the entire trail. Beautiful views and pictures, was still icy when hiked it. Quite a few rocks on the trail, but nothing to difficult, besides incline on mud.

Good trail out and back. Small amount of snow right now but so pretty did not need any snow gear. Beautiful!

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!

Beautiful hike. Fairly simple trail to follow, but it feels isolated enough to enjoy your surroundings. The gorge is powerful and gives you sight of the Rogue River you won't find along other stretches. Highly recommend checking it out!

I imagine that this trail is overgrown in the summer. This time of year it is awesome. Dog, kid, wife and beginner trail-runner did fine. I will be doing it again.

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

Nice hike with hidden camp spots. Trail is well marked and easy, great for families. The water is cold all year, too cold for swimming. Pretty swift in some areas.

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.

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.
