NATIONAL CREEK FALLS

VERY KID-FRIENDLY

Douglas County, Oregon  MAP

Actually in Douglas County, but not too far from Union Creek.  The falls occur where the spring-fed creek diverges around a basalt outcropping and plunges about 40 feet over a jagged ledge in two scenic channels. The grotto below the falls is exceptionally scenic and thriving in greenery, with a small meadow of mosses growing on a flat area just downstream of the falls where Falls Creek merges with National Creek. The falls flow very consistently and are good to visit any time of the year.

PEARSONY FALLS

VERY KID-FRIENDLY | Stroller Friendly

Prospect, Oregon  MAP

Pearsony Falls is not a tall fall but it is very beautiful trail to get there.  It has a very wide path and it is about only a 1/4 of a mile to get there for the view.  Be careful when you are trying to get pictures, the rocks are very slippery.  If you continue on the path you will reach the top of Mill Creek Falls and a top view of Avenue of the Boulders.  

To get there you will take the same road as Mill Creek Falls going into Prospect.  As you head into Prospect you will see a rest area on the right side (no sign).  That is where you will park to walk to Pearsony Falls.
