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.

This place just became my most favorite hike of all time! Easy to moderate forested trial. Dog friendly. Lots of wildlife from snakes, birds, chipmunks, lizards and fish. DOZENS of waterfalls! Fern/moss wall heaven! Mostly shaded with some people. Mosquitos were also not an issue. Catwalk along the mountain side was just scary enough to be exciting but not "turn around" scary, of course depending on your fear of heights. Almost wish the trail was harder to keep more people away! Doable for kids as well. Bathroom also located at the start of trail.

A great hike for the whole family, old and young alike! An extra plus is walking in the creek if you have your water socks on.

Beautiful trail, quite easy. I was there at 10 a.m. on a Wednesday, and it wasn't crowded at all on the way up, but coming back down, it was already starting to get crowded. I imagine it's a crowded nightmare on summer weekend afternoons.
