Sweet Creek Falls and Beaver Creek Falls- Friends of the Umpqua

February 22, 2020

February 22 – Sweet Creek Falls and Beaver Creek Falls:

Siuslaw National Forest near Mapleton with 5 named falls and more. Due to no bridge in the middle the hike will require in and out from 2 trailheads for approximate 5 miles of scenic hiking through varied species old growth forest. Rated easy to moderate. Hiking poles recommended due to slick areas. 
Driving time: 2+ hours. Distance: around 6 miles Type of hike: Two distinct hikes separated by a short drive to a second trailhead. Sweet Creek is absolutely stunning when the creek is swollen with winter runoff. The trail follows the creek on catwalks and one can observe the creek tumbling from pool to pool. There are several spectacular waterfalls that will amaze and delight hikers. For more information contact Diana Pace 541-784-5004.

Meet – The group meets before 8 am in the Douglas County Courthouse parking lot behind the Roseburg Public Library. In general, most hikes take an hour to an hour and a half driving time each direction.

Bring – Each person should bring water, lunch, layers of clothing including raingear. If you wish to carpool then please come prepared to share gas expenses. Driving time to trailheads and hike length are estimates only.

Be Prepared – Wear seasoned boots. Stay with the group and on the trail. If lost, stay put. Each hiker hikes at his or her own risk and is responsible for his or her own health, safety and welfare. Hiking destinations may be changed due to weather conditions or other concerns.

The hike coordinator will have you sign a SignInWaiver to participate.

Hikes are submitted to the News Review for publication. A schedule is also listed on this website and is posted on the club’s Facebook page.

Hike destinations are subject to change at the hike coordinator’s discretion due to weather conditions, etc.
