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.

Lovely place! My dog is quite tolerant and unfazed, but we did hurry over the grate sections so not to hurt paws, keep her from getting nervous, etc. She is a medium sized dog. Grates can be slick for anyone! careful! The cool thing is as I remember it, the grate sections were way into the trail, so you can choose not to go past that point. there are plenty of falls and wading in COLD water before that point. The grate sections are broken up with regular trail. Some points are a lil high and looking down thru grate if your faint of heart is not recommended! Beautiful location, lots of great water views, access, trees, etc!

This was a very simple hike. Went her Mother's Day 2013.it was very crowded and the bathroom was destroyed people were doing their business behind the outhouse. The trial was overgrown and I wouldn't recommend dogs because of the grate section that hovers over the creek. My small dogs feet would go threw the holes my big dog would have had a tough time. The fall was pretty.
