Sweet Creek Falls
April 17, 2005
It was raining heavily as our group met at SEHS to car pool to Sweet Creek
Falls outside of Mapleton in the Coast Range.
This didn’t dampen our enthusiasm (particularly as the rain subsided)
for one of the most spectacular waterfall hikes.
We extended the mileage of this hike to five miles including three trails
offering different views of Sweet Creek and Beaver Creek Falls.
We enjoyed a variety of wildflowers including bleeding heart, false Solomon’s
seal, fairy bells, yellow violets, pink fawn lily, yellow monkey flower, trillium,
salmonberry, candy flower, and fringe cup.
