Sweet Creek Falls

Saturday, May 14, 2011
Leader: Joanne Ledet
Hike: 2.5 miles, 250 ft (Easy)

The threat of rain may have discouraged some people from hiking Sweet Creek Falls on May 14, but the three hikers who participated enjoyed a creek full of water and an abundance of wildflowers. We left at 9 a.m. and picked up a little mist as we drove west, and the light mist stayed with us for most of our hike. The wildflowers were thriving with the moisture and we saw large areas of bleeding hearts, false Solomon’s seal and scattered beds of wartberry fairybell. There were even a few last-of–the-season trillium. Amy found a wildflower that I could not find in my wildflower book so we decided to name it after her. Since we so thoroughly enjoyed the many vistas of cascading waterfalls that Sweet Creek affords, we decided to take an additional hike to Beaver Creek Falls. The waterfall created by Beaver Creek flowing into Sweet Creek is well worth the additional short hike.
