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 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.

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.

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
