Easy hike along Sweet Creek passes by a ton of waterfalls, with majestic Sweet Creek Falls as a grand finale. In this Coast Range valley, the Sweet Creek Trail follows the scenic cascading waters of Sweet Creek. Each waterfall is framed by mossy rocks and ferns and under a canopy of Douglas-fir, Alder, and Big leaf maple.
I love having raided platforms on trails.
Very easy and short hike to a waterfall overlook, accessible during winter. Trail was in good condition. Highly recommend doing this on your way to the coastal dunes.
I love this trail! Very beautiful and very wet. It can be rather cold and wet during the early Spring. The trail has amazing wooden walkways that are impressive by themselves.
Such a pleasant hike. Super beautiful now that the leaves are changing and falling
Nice little hike in the rain. Beautiful trees and water. Very easy terrain.
Nice little hike. Took the family which consists of a 15 month old (in a backpack) and a 3 year old who isn't a perfect walker. HE DID THE WHOLE THING! It could be a chore to get a parking spot in the lot. The earlier you get there, the better it seems
Amazing little place!!! Took my dog and there are parts deep enough to go swimming!! So beautiful and relaxing!
Beautiful little 2.25 mile hike. Lots of small waterfalls. Just a gorgeous setting. We did this hike at 9 am on a weekend in the summer and were the only ones on the trail. Only saw a couple other people as we were finishing up. Our black lab loved the walk and it was nice for her to get to drink and play from shallow water in many places. Trail is nice with several foot bridges - one wood, the others sturdy steel. Mostly dirt/gravel path. Some rocky areas to navigate but overall an easy little hike.
