What a beautiful hike! We parked at the first parking lot and completed this hike fairly quick. Decided to drive up the road a bit and found Wagon Road trailhead. Both hikes were short but well worth it!!! Great day!!!

This is a great hike for a photographer. I went this hike on the 5th of November and the waterfall and creek had good water runoff. Great short hike.

This is an absolutely gorgeous area. The river and falls are beautiful, great for photography, and there are plenty of places to get your feet (or more of you) wet on a hot day. A pretty easy hike, so good for kids. It is apparently a pretty popular place, however, and there isn't much in the way of parking. There were quite a few people there, coming and going the entire time we were there. For me, that's a pretty big downside, and it's really the only reason it doesn't get more stars. So if you don't mind meeting people on the trail, I would highly recommend it.

Stopped by Sweet Creek on our way to the Redwoods via Florence, and it was well worth the sidetrack. Excellent little hike, and a great lunch spot! Dogs loved it except for the metal grate bridges. Very beautiful. Lots of photo ops!

Stopped by late in the day on my way home from Florence, OR. It was worth seeing.You do need to be a little careful on the metal grated bridges if they are wet. The trees had fallen leaves, and there were are some uneven rocks sunk on the trail. It is a watch your step kind of deal here and there, but not too bad overall. It is pretty easy for all age groups. I loved the cascading waterfalls all along the way, ferns, big boulders covered in green moss. The sound of the water is relaxing.
