An easy hike with a beautiful series of waterfalls along a pretty creek. Slight elevation changes, maintained trails without being too manicured. Classic Oregon rainforest.

The trail is a bit off the main roads but is well worth the detour. Several accessible waterfalls on a well maintained trail. Count on 2-3 hours round trip at a leisurely pace. Several picnic worthy options along the way if you are so inclined.

Look for the Swift Creek Road off Hwy 126 near Mapleton. The trailhead is 10 miles down the well paved, magnificently tree lined road. Waterfalls all along the way. Wildflowers, including tiger lilies were still out when we visited in early June. The trail is...More

When the weather is fine, this is a little bit of heaven. Beautiful mountain stream with several waterfalls. Pack a lunch and enjoy some quality time with the family. Avoid parking crush on summer weekends.
