The one-mile Fall Creek Falls National Recreation Trail leads to a multi-tiered waterfall with the two largest tiers measuring 35 and 50 feet. The trail passes through a narrow crevice in a large boulder, then climbs alongside the creek through old-growth Douglas-fir. After a short hike, the trail reaches the base of the falls, where you can view the largest, bottommost tier tumbling over a mossy rock cliff. The trail then continues more steeply to a viewing platform where you can view the second to the last tier, before climbing to connect with the old North Umpqua Highway, Road 4710. From this vantage point, you can view the top of the falls descending into the gorge you just climbed through.
