Fall Creek Road is, in many ways, two separate roads. The first section, FS120, starts at the Anderson Ranch Reservoir Dam and follows along the side of the reservoir to the Fall Creek Recreation Area. The second section, FS123, follows Fall Creek to Ice Springs Campground and is bordered mainly by private land with many cabins. Fall Creek Road is primarily an access road to the recreation areas along the reservoir and the cabin area. Fall Creek is relatively small and scenic. It is a pretty drive.

The road is generally a narrow two-lane along the reservoir with a well-maintained gravel surface. Maintenance is limited in the winter. Numerous pullouts assist with passing larger vehicles. The hazards along this stretch are twofold. The gravel often feels slippery, and the road is twisty, with many blind curves. The Hardest Part photo does not show the road surface but, instead, how the road winds along the edge of the reservoir, which is the hardest part of driving this road.

There are campgrounds along the reservoir and in the Fall Creek Recreation Area. At the north end of Fall Creek Road is Ice Springs Campground. It is a fee campground maintained by the Boise National Forest and is quite popular and often full.
