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!

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

Great for kiddos...my Love proposed here!

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.

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.

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.

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