Beaver Creek Falls
Siuslaw National Forest, Oregon
Sweet Creek Homestead Trail Complex
The valley was homesteaded in 1879 by the Oregon Trail pioneering family of Zarah and Cecil Sweet. The old wagon road is now part Sweet Creek Trail. There are several waterfalls along this trail. Beaver Creek Falls is the uppermost waterfall in the Sweet Creek Trail Complex. The falls occur at the confluence of Beaver and Sweet Creeks. Beaver Creek veils over a 15 foot ledge, while Sweet Creek Cascades about 10 feet, the two streams intermingling half way down, becoming essentially one intertwined waterfall. Though it only stands around 15 feet tall (maybe a little more), it is one of the larger waterfalls in the Sweet Creek Falls complex, and is definitely one of the most scenic.
