Mill Creek Falls

Mill Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Follow a roller-coaster trail out to Mill Creek Falls, a ribbon that drops over a tiered cliff at the confluence of East Sulphur Creek and Bumpass Creek. Mill Creek Falls is a narrow whitewater plunge at the confluence of East Sulphur Creek and Bumpass Creek. Spray from the 72-foot fall darkens the cream-and-gold-colored cliff over which it cascades, and the narrow gorge of East Sulphur Creek resonates with its splendid roar.

The falls can be enjoyed from a shady overlook on the Mill Creek Falls trail or from a perch on one of the footbridges at the very brink, where the creeks gather in a frothy fury before taking the plunge. The trail begins by dropping down stairs behind the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center and the Southwest Walk-in Campground. Switchback down through big pines and firs to a bridge crossing West Sulphur Creek, which meets with East Sulphur Creek downstream to form Mill Creek."
