You drive about 4 miles off OR-230 on a paved 1-1/2 lane road to the parking area. The parking area is dirt. The hike is about half a mile downhill on switchbacks. The falls are quite beautiful and worth the hike down and back. There...More

It was a steep hike down to the falls, and when we got to the bottom we could only see the right half. I realize a bridge wouldn’t be feasible but maybe there’s a way to run the trail down the other side of the...More

I did this hike the third week of June. Although the trail is easy the mosquitos were ravenous. You are rewarded with a waterfall you can walk fairly close to. If you are doing photography there will be spray, and if you go midday the...More

another short walk from our hotel in Prospect were national falls. I actually had no idea how many water falls are located by this town. The reason to come to this area is for the nature. so get out and visit the different water falls.

The Rogue River emerges from ancient lava tubes - of which a trace remains here. Read a little geology before visiting about Oregon's fiery past. Makes the visit even better.

We planned to go to Crater Lake, but due to rain and snow the visibility was so poor the Rangers said we wouldn't be able to see the lake. On our way to Medford from Crater Lake we decided to venture down some side roads...More

You have the watch for the signs up highway 230 on yhe right side heading towards Diamond Lake. The hike down to the falls isn't hard, but you will need to take your time. Once you are there it's worth it.
