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.

Beautiful paved trail, great for kids and novice hikers. Dog friendly. Parking lot at the trail head with restrooms, but no sinks. The paved part of the trail ends after the natural bridge overlook, but remains easy and beautiful.

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.

Great paved trail, even accessible for someone in a wheelchair. Falls are beautiful and the lava tunnel (natural bridge) that sucks the water one place and rushes it out another is awesome to see. Never seen anything like that before!

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.

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.

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...

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.

It's broken in some spots

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.

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.
