Temporarily inaccessible due to fallen trees 8/16/19. This 1.6 mile (2.6 km) moderate hike leads to an upper and lower Parker Falls. Located in the Umpqua National Forest along Brice Creek, these waterfalls are less trafficked than the nearby Trestle Creek Falls. The trail begins by following a ridge with sword ferns and moss-laden boulders while Parker Creek rushes below. The trail quickly ascends at a moderate grade for the first .5 mile (.8 km) leading to Lower Parker Falls. Lower Parker Falls is an accessible and scenic three-tiered waterfall. After Lower Parker Falls, the trail begins to get a little steeper and climbs for another .25 mile (.4 km) to Upper Parker Falls. There are limited views of Upper Parker Falls.
