Bull Run Creek Falls and Lower Bull Run Creek Falls are located on Bull Run Creek which flows into Elk Creek near Elk River.

Bull Run Creek Falls descends about 85 feet. The falls are reached after a short 1.5 miles hike from the beginning of the trail at a gated forest road. The final path from the logging roads to the falls is an unmarked bend in the road but visitors will hear the falls from the road and there is a faint path that leads to the views. Lower Bull Run Falls is said to be more impressive than its upper creek cousin. The falls are shorter at 50 feet and tumble over a rock face into a small pool. The canyon around the base of the falls is steep and very slippery, so take care in traversing the way down to the base. The upper falls is a cascade and the lower is a cascade falls.

Characteristics of the falls change with the amount of flow during any given year. When the creek is running full, Bull Run Creek Falls is very noisy and leaves a mist in the air. When it is drier, the pock marked rock face is visible.
