Hiking Sweet Creek Falls Interpretive Trail

This trail absolutely begs visitors to pack a picnic lunch and linger.There are multiple picnic tables along the short paved hiking trail leading to the falls. On a hot day, visitors can play in the shallow pool below the falls. This easy hike doubles as a rest area on the International Selkirk Loop, or as a leg stretcher on the way to Gardner Cave further north.
