What Sweetbriar Falls lacks in size, it makes up for in ease of access and steady flow. It is located a half-mile east of the Sweetbriar exit on Interstate 5 where you can park and follow the creek to the falls. It is a refreshing mini-excursion for anyone traveling through. There’s even a solid vantage point and photo op from a nearby bridge.
