Barr Creek Falls, Prospect ,Jackson, Oregon ,USA


Address -: Barr Creek Falls ,1051 Mill Creek Dr, Prospect ,Jackson County, Oregon ,USA
Barr Creek Falls is a multi-stepped waterfall in the Rogue River Canyon near Prospect, Oregon. Barr Creek bisects the southern end of the Prospect Airfield, then drops over a 60 foot fall which is mostly obscured by trees, then cascades 30 feet and finally plunges 150 feet to the canyon floor. Barr Creek doesn't hold a large volume of water, so the falls range from an explosive torrent during the spring to a more delicate veil later in the summer. When the flow is right, a second segment forms adjacent to the final drop of the falls.

Along the Mill Creek Falls trailhead is Barr Creek Falls, a three drop waterfall also known as Bear Creek Falls.The name comes from the presence of a cattle bar next to the waterfall to prevent cattle from straying out of the boundaries of private ranches that neighbor the river.
Prospect State Scenic Viewpoint, is a state park south of the community of Prospect on Oregon Route 62 in Jackson County, in the U.S. state of Oregon. It was formerly known as Mill Creek Falls Scenic Area, a private hiking area that was developed by Willamette Industries along the Rogue River. Both Mill Creek Falls and Pearsony Falls are contained within the area, with Barr Creek Falls close by.
A hydroelectric dam was built in the 1920s which drained the narrow valley containing the group of falls. A group of large boulders appeared.These have become a local attraction known as the Avenue of the Giant Boulders.
