Mill Creek Falls

mill creek falls directions tips oregon Many people that go to Mill Creek Falls miss out on the other wonders in the area. The directions to the waterfall are well marked on Highway 62 and easy to get to from Medford or Crater Lake. My book said to get off at mile post 38. Mile post 38 is actually a few feet beyond the turnoff if you are coming from the Medford area. So either turn before mile post 38 onto Mill Creek Road or wait and get off at the junction (marked with a large sign that says “Mill Creek Falls ==>”) at about mile post 42. If you are going further down the road after your visit (like to Union Creek, the Rogue River Gorge, or Crater Lake) you can turn right out of the parking lot rather than backtrack.

Back to my first statement about what not to miss. After viewing Mill Creek Falls continue to walk another five minutes (to the right if you are viewing this scene). There you will find the even more spectacular Barr Creek Falls (photograph in my next blog entry). But the best place of all in this neck of the woods is “Avenue of Giant Boulders.” The “Avenue of Giant Boulders” is one of my favorite places on the planet.
