Sweeny Falls is hidden in plain sight. Located along WA Hwy 14 just east of Stevenson, most people will drive right past the 2 turnoffs that provide access to the falls. Be on your toes as you approach, as the falls is located on a sharp s-bend in the road.

A few hundred yards walk will place you at the base of this 67 ft. tall twisting cascade. This falls is best viewed in the spring and winter when the creek is running at its peak. Due to the small size of the drainage, the falls will likely be dry during the summer.

Have no fear if you find the falls too dry for your taste, an abandoned mine shaft provides an excellent mini-adventure to explore. Bring a flashlight and explore your way to both dead ends. It won’t take long.
