Address -: Mill Creek Falls ,Jackson County ,Prospect ,Oregon ,USA

Prospect State Scenic Viewpoint (Mill Creek Falls ), 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.

The Mill Creek Falls is the centerpiece attraction within the Mill Creek Scenic Area. A trailhead developed by Boise Cascade ends on a fork that leads to the Avenue of Boulders to the left and Mill Creek Falls and Barr Creek Falls to the right. The waterfall totals 173 feet high on Mill Creek shortly before it meets the Rogue River and is one of the tallest cascades in Oregon. Mill creek has low sinuosity and has a gently sloping terrain.Yet, it flows through unstable banks which produce large amounts of sediment. Historically, the Mill Creek Falls area has moderate to frequent fires, primarily from lightning, having been entirely burned at least once in the past.For this reason it's common to see charred trees and snags surrounding the waterfall area.
