Sweet Creek Falls Hike – Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021 – Registration Required. The Hikes: The Sweet Creek/Beaver Creek area offers hikers a smorgasbord mountain stream and waterfalls experience. There will be 4 different hikes all of which are out and back on the same trail and rated moderate. The first will be a 1/2 mile trip to view Beaver Creek Falls. The second will be a 1.2 mile hike to a different viewpoint of Beaver Creek Falls. The third hike will be 1.6 miles to Sweet Creek Falls. The final and best hike of the day will be a 1.6 mile hike along Sweet Creek on a trail that meanders along the water and actually travels right over the creek on a railed catwalks that is bolted to the side of the canyon. All together you will hike 4.9 miles for the day as you enjoy 4 beautiful waterfall views.  If you want to take it a little easier you can cut out the third hike and take a break while the rest of the group goes on this section. Since the hikes are all “out and back” you can cut any of the hikes short and return to the parking area if you are getting tired. Plan on 4 hours for all the hikes—starting for home around 2pm. Bring lunch and water and rain gear, dress in layers, and wear sturdy boots (waterproof is good}. Location and Time – Meet at Oregon Dunes Visitor Center in Reedsport at 9:00. We will caravan from there. Directions: From Coos Bay Visitor Center in downtown Coos Bay travel 26.6 miles N on Hwy 101. Visitor center is on left directly opposite the turnoff for Hwy 38. We will consolidate vehicles and leave from the Dunes Visitor Center at 9:00, reaching the Beaver Creek Falls trail head at about 10:30 (with one rest stop along the way). In the past we’ve driven over gravel roads, but this year we’ll be going through Florence and Mapleton.
