Saturday, May 3 – Hike Sweet Creek Falls Trail We will hike Sweet Creek from the Homestead Trailhead past Split Falls, Punch Bowl Falls, and Ledge Falls to the end of the trail and back. This will be a fun chance to see coastal wildflowers and the falls at their best with all the spring rains we have been having. Sweet Creek is just across the Siuslaw River from Mapleton where we will plane on having lunch at Alpha-Bit Gallery/Cafe. This is an easy 2.5 mile walk in the woods with almost zero elevation gain until the very last section. Part of the trail is on a metal cat walk above the creek for great views of Maiden Hair Ferns, Yellow Monkey Flowers, and Trilliums.
Please come with water, rain gear,water resistant foot wear, camera and your curiosity. This is a no dog outing.
