|There are many local activities located
near the cabin besides visiting Crater Lake National Park.
Mill Creek Falls and Barr Creek Falls Trailhead a few miles from the cabins. It is also the trailhead for Avenue of the Boulders. Mill Creek and Barr Creek both fall about 170 feet into the canyon of the North Fork of the Rogue River. They are viewed from the opposite side of the canyon. Continuing on down the trail to the canyon bottom itself, you will find yourself in the Avenue of the Boulders. The Rogue River has carved it's way through huge boulders to create an amazing natural phenomenon well worth seeing. The trails are only 1/4 to 1/2 mile long and an easy walk.
Pearsoney Falls Trailhead located just across the highway from the Prospect General Store. The trail winds down through the north side of the north fork of the Rogue River and is a quiet, cool walk in the heat of the summer. Pearsoney Falls is about 1/4 mile down the trail and if you continue on you will find yourself looking down on the Avenue of the Boulders from the north side of the river. There is also a great view of the bridge that crossed the north fork. The canyon is awesome in the summer when the water is low but the winter and spring thaw offers fantastic views of the high, rapid water pouring down through the mighty North Fork.
