  2. mile past milepost 37 - east of Oakridge - head south at road signed for Hills Creek Dam / Kitson Springs
  3. After 0.5 mile turn right onto Road #21
  4. In another 16.1 miles find Butcherknife Creek Falls on the left where Rd #21 intersects with Rd #2127
  5. In another mile on Rd #21 find a sign for Boulder Creek on the left
  6. Park just a short distance on the right past the creek
Found this interesting structure near Boulder creek. It draws water from the creek and comes out the
blue chute. I imagine it's for filling a water truck. Maybe exhibitionists use it for a shower.
You be the judge.


There are some camping and picnic facilities on Road #21.
Flow is most likely seasonal for both.
