Rock Bluff Falls is a small slide over a slope of rock, surrounded by thick brush, nasty pine forest, and marshy ground.

Directions

Head south on US-45 from Bruce Crossing, driving 12.2 miles before turning right for .5 miles and parking near the split on this road. You'll be on a straight two-track, the old route of 45, with Rock Bluff Creek cutting a very deep gouge to the left. Paulding Light is just on the other side of this gouge.

The falls are located down the other side of the road within the steep river valley. Head down through the woods, along an ATV trail if you can fine one, to the river. Most of the drops are located a short distance to the left from the parking spot.

  • Mark Piotrowski Oct 1, '23 There's a lot of confusion about the falls in this area. The Rock bluff Falls I know of is a little further south on Mateson Creek, accessible either from 45 or old 45. The hike in is a little shorter off of the highway, the hike off of Old 45 allows you to be parked in a more secluded area. Just a little farther down the road feel stag lists a bluff Creek Falls on a small branch of bluff Creek. This is not much of a waterfall. This may be being confused with the waterfall you are listing here where the creek looks larger..Add to this discussion
