The Elk Creek drainage is absolutely chock-full of large waterfalls. So far, I've mapped 11 waterfalls on it's various tributaries. Unfortunately, Elk Creek Falls is the only one of those that are easily accessed. This is the only other waterfall I was successfully able to photograph in the drainage. This waterfall occurs along the North Fork Elk Creek, just above FR 3358. Though there is a waterfall mapped in this vicinity, I suspect that it is not this one, but a larger fall, no more than 1/10 mile upstream. I will definitely be spending more time in this area next time I'm in the region.
- Bramble Brush Falls is the Proposed name of this waterfall.
I've named the falls such because I wanted to convey the moderate frustration I had while trekking to the falls. Even though it's a mere 200 feet above the road, it took me a good 10 minutes to reach because of the thick brush, mostly consisting of sticker bushes. When the creek is running lower, I'm sure it should be much easier to reach.
Located in the Siskiyou National Forest. From the city of Coos Bay, follow Highway 101 south to Highway 42. Follow Highway 42 for about 21 miles, and turn right onto the Rogue-Coquille Scenic Byway, signed for the town of Powers. Follow this road, which becomes FR 33, for about 17 miles, to FR 3358, signed for Big Tree and Cedar Swamp. Follow FR 3358, staying right at the first major junction, for 3 1/2 miles to the crossing of the North Fork Elk Creek. The falls lay 200 feet upstream of this point.
