Sweet Creek Falls was one of my favorite experiences in all of Oregon! The beautiful collection of waterfalls is relatively easy to hike but has so much beauty contained in all the nuances up the river! We only found this spot thanks to having too much time between locations. We shot a lot of waterfalls on this trip but the final waterfall on this journey was the most lovely we found the entire time. If you're a waterfall chaser this is the spot to experience!
Hiked today and we have hiked much of Oregon and I was blown away . reasonably easy trail those though a few spots to be careful in wet weather. I felt like every bend offered a wonderful new view. Can't wait to go back in warmer weather.
While this was about a 4 hour drive total for us, I would highly recommend taking the time and going to see this place. I woukd suggest wearing hiking shoes or boots as the terrain is both wet and slippery. Also, the hike is beautiful, so stop and take a lot of pictures. This is an in and out type trail so be prepared to allow people to pass.
Just a great hike along the creek. I'd highly recommend if you are passing through Mapleton. Definitely wear appropriate hiking shoes and bring bug spray. Parking fills up fast, but there is extra parking up the road as well. I'd cation bringing water dogs because they be tempted at every turn in the trail. Also the trail is kinda narrow and rough in certain spots.
Did not disappoint! Beautiful hike. The water was low enough we could walk along the creek bed for most of the hike. Scrabble around the rocks when we could and enjoy putting our feet in the water. Multiple levels of small falls all the way to the big one.:) Easy hike. Take your time and enjoy nature!
