Moon Falls is a lovely spot to visit on a hot summer day.  It is a bit of a drive up Layng Creek Road to the trailhead, but an easy walk from there. From Cottage Grove, OR, travel east on Row River Road 2400 for 19 miles to the junction of Layng Creek Road 17 and Brice Creek Road 2470. Turn left on Layng Creek Road 17 and continue for 8.8 miles to Forest Road 1790. Turn right and travel for 0.25 mile to Forest Road 1702. Turn left on Forest Road 1702 and travel for 2.8 miles to Forest Road 1702-728. Turn right on Forest Road 1702-728 and continue for 0.3 mile, turning left on Forest Road 1702-203. The trailhead is at the end of the road. Parking is limited to 3-4 vehicles. Please maintain turn around room for visitors. It is a good idea to stop at the Forest Service Office about 2 miles east of town on Row River Rd to pick up a map. Layng Creek is named after George Layng, an Irish immigrant.  The Layngs settled near Rujada on Layng Creek.  They raised cattle and did a brisk business supplying meat to the Bohemia Mines.
