Picture of the Week: The Hike to Sweet Creek Falls

17 12 2012

The hike to Sweet Creek Falls is unique. Off the top of my head, this is the only waterfall hike I can think of where the wonder and beauty of the hike itself easily trumps that of the falls. A remarkably scenic creek, random smaller falls, catwalks and a lush forest, combined to make this hike one of the prettiest I’ve done all year. Click on pic for larger view.

Where is it?

Hi Donna! Take the 126 west out of Eugene. Just before you cross a bridge into the town of Mapleton, hang a left onto Sweet Creek Rd. Drive 11 miles to the lower, or Homestead Trailhead.Round trip the hike is under 2 miles, but beautiful! I have a photo set from this same outing over on my facebook page if you’re interested 🙂
