  1. Consult with Cottage Grove Ranger Station (541-942-5591) for status
    of Forest Service Road #22 (Brice Creek Road) before travel
  2. Take Cottage Grove exit 174
  3. Head east on Row River Road.
  4. Past milepost 4 continue straight onto Shoreview Drive
    (Row River Rd splits off to the left - Shoreview Drive rejoins Row River Rd in another six miles)
  5. Past milepost 19 Row River Road ends. Head straight onto Brice Creek Road (FSR #22)
    This road will have its own mileposts (road that veers left is FSR #17 to Spirit/Moon Falls)
  6. Near milepost 8 look for a rest area just before a bridge and park on the
    left near the rest area (no easy place to park past the bridge)
  7. Walk along the left side of the road. Immediately past
    the bridge is a trail marked 1403. Go downstream for 1/4 mile and cross a foot
    bridge. This bridge goes across Trestle Creek (its waterfall on a trail leading upwards)
  8. Walk past the foot bridge for another 30 feet and find a trail leading downwards
    towards some boulders near Brice Creek. Face Falls is visible from the boulders.
Seen at the start of trail #1403 - Clodius Parnassian Butterfly on clover.
