Sweet Creek

Hiking along Sweet Creek

The Sweet Creek Falls trail near Mapleton is one of my favorite short hikes. There is a lot of beauty packed into a short hike.

WOW! Love your photos!!! Adam, I've tried the first 2 trailheads but haven't encountered the falls in your 3rd photo and I've not found the catwalk or scaffolding (whichever it's called). Where are those, please?

I just walked up the trail from the first Trailhead. I parked in the parking area with the bathrooms along Sweet Creek road and walked up the trail from there.

Thanks! I must not have walked far enough...and it was probably not the best time of year (September) when I went because the flow was very low.

I live on Sweet Creek Road, I have only been to the falls once, it was a great hike with beautiful scenery. I need to go again, soon.
