If you like waterfalls, the Upper Rogue Region is a great place to visit. Here are a few spectacular falls located off Hwy 62, in or very near Prospect:
Barr Creek Falls and Mill Creek Falls: Take Hwy 62 to Mill Creek Dr. and follow it through the town of Prospect to the Mill Creek Falls Trailhead, about 1.5 miles south of Hwy. 62. A parking area on the left has a trail going down towards the falls, with vantage points from which to view them. Barr Creek Falls is multi-stepped, dropping first 60 ft., then another 30 ft, and finally 150 ft. to the canyon floor. Mill Creek Falls is about 175 ft high. The greatest amount of water flow is generally in the spring.
Pearsony Falls: Take Hwy 62 to Mill Creek Dr. and go for .75 mile to a large parking area on the left side of the road (if you cross the Rogue River you’ve gone too far). Follow the trail from the north side of the parking lot for about .5 mile to the falls. Pearsony Falls is not as high as the others, but can nevertheless carry a significant amount of water, and is quite lovely in its own right.
