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.

absolutely gorgeous! Fairly easy trail to walk but gave the sense of ruggedness with rocks and mini waterfalls running across the trails. Benches placed periodically along the trail to enjoy the scenery.

Nice easy hike, but there are better ones that are far less crowded but this is easy and not far off the beaten path

Short hike which has a cute trail. Several tiny waterfalls make the entire hike picturesque.

Visiting from Missouri and hiked this is the rain. The force of the water was so loud it sounded like a jet engine. It was incredible.

Perfect time to hike this trail. With all the rain this year, there is constant falls along the trail all the way to the end. Last one is worth the hike, to view over the top.

Something for everyone here! The way in took us quite a while because we kept stopping for pics. Not too strenuous, not a lot of inclines, but just long enough to make you feel like you earned the view

I took my three daughters out to hike here this past weekend and we loved it. Very easy trail with little to no incline. Beautiful views from so many places. The weather was great so the trail was packed, but there was always enough room for safe passing.

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.
