Pearsoney Falls is a small cascade along Mill Creek about 1/4 mile upstream of the much more worthy Mill Creek Falls. The falls cascade about 12 feet where the creek splits around a small island - the majority of the volume of the creek staying to the far side of the island (the smaller channel may run dry in the late summer). The falls are worth seeing if planning on hiking the trail system in Prospect, but focus on the larger waterfalls downstream first, then only if you have time, come see this one.
- Pearsoney Falls is the Official name of this waterfall.
Pearsoney Falls was named for a pair of families who settled in the Prospect area, the Pearsons and the Mooneys.
Pearsoney Falls is located just outside the town of Prospect. Following Highway 62 south from Crater Lake, turn east on Mill Creek Road about 2/3 of a mile north of the Highway's crossing of the Rogue River. Follow Mill Creek Road through town for 3/4 of a mile to the large parking area on the left side of the road (if you cross the Rogue River you've gone too far). Follow the trail from the north side of the parking lot for about 1/5 of a mile to the falls.
