Wolf Creek Recreation Area
Secluded in a tranquil forest, the 1.2-mile Wolf Creek Falls Trail leads to twin waterfalls tumbling over rock cliffs which drop 50 and 75 feet into pools below. Water volume varies from a full-fan waterfall during rainy months (left photo) to a narrow spout in the summer. In spring, vegetation is lush and verdant. In the late fall and through the winter months rains increase water flow and hikers should prepare for a colder and damper hike.
The hike begins at the arched foot-bridge over Little River. A picnic site is located one-half mile up the trail, with easy access to this point. (not considered disabled accessible due to13% slope over arched bridge.) Farther up, the trail is moderately steep but is groomed by Wolf Creek Job Corps youth. A parking area, vault toilet and picnic table are located across Little River road from the bridge.
Camping is available at the nearby Cavitt Cr. Campground, or at U.S. Forest Service campgrounds farther up Little River road. Other nearby waterfall hikes on Umpqua National Forest offer additional opportunities to view majestic Pacific Northwest waterfalls: Grotto, Hemlock, Yakso, and Shadow Falls. Details are available in the BLM / USFS Thundering Waters Waterfall Guide
