I was trying to remember how difficult it is to find Fern Rock Creek Falls, and realized it is definitely one of the easier waterfalls to find. It is right off of Oregon route 6. Bridge Creek Falls is also nearby, but my gosh, is it difficult to find, though once you find the trail, it’s a super-easy hike.
Fern Rock Creek Falls, on the other hand, is only a few feet away from a large pulloff where there is much more space for cars to park. When I arrived, the parking area was wet and muddy, which I’m expecting is pretty normal in spring. Even so, you can see the falls from your car. It’s definitely worth it to get out and enjoy the view. The waterfall is very photogenic, as are many of the mossy falls in Oregon.
1) I was heading east along OR-6 from Tillamook. Set your odometer, and drive for a little over 29 miles. You should see mile marker signs, though for some reason, not every mile…
2) Just past the 29 mile marker, you’ll see a “parking” area, which is one of the few places you can pull off easily. It will be on your right if you’re heading east.
3) Look out your window, and you should see the falls. If you don’t see falls, you’re not at the right place!
