This modest waterfall along Souther Creek doesn't appear to have an official name of any sort. The locals know it as The Falls at Sweeney's Corner, and a couple books have adapted that name into Sweeney Falls for the road across the street. The lack of a name stems from the lack of visibility from Highway 14. While the falls are visible to the keen sighted when the surrounding trees are bare, cliffs on either side of the creek block in views until it's too late to stop - that is unless you know where to stop. The falls consist of a 67 foot sliding horsetail which veils out at its base. When the creek is running high, two rather notable roostertails occur halfway up the falls - the uppermost being the more prominent. Near the base is an obvious hole in the cliff, remnants of a failed mine.
- Sweeney Falls is the Adopted name of this waterfall.
This entry is located approximately 5 miles east of Bridge of the Gods - or about 2 Â¼ miles east of downtown Stevenson, just north of Highway 14 on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge. Watch for a sharp bend where the highway crosses Souther Creek (cliffs line the east side of the bend) and a modest pullout on the west side of the stream's gully. A rude trail drops down to the creek with aid of a rope and leads back to the base of the falls.
