#12 of 146 in Nature in Oregon
The largest state park in Oregon, Silver Falls State Park hosts mountain bikers, horseback riders, and hikers. The forest trails along Silver Creek are the setting for many films that take advantage of the wild woods. The Trail of Ten Falls, otherwise known as Canyon Trail, follows the creek and passes by ten waterfalls. South Falls is the most popular set of waterfalls, but the highest cascade is the 54 m (178 ft) tall Double Falls.

  • This is a beautiful place. There's a little something for everyone. Such neat things and places to look at. It's a great central location for picnics, swimming, food, souvenirs etc. There is plenty of parking which cost $5 that is paid at a kiosk. It is good until the park closes. I like how it gives a quick access to see the south falls without having to hike or go far to see. Its nice for when you haven't a lot of time. One of my most favorite places to go.
  • Great park. Easy parking at the main lot in the South Falls. Definitely come prepared and do the whole thing, start off from the main parking lot and head away from the South Falls towards the North. This way you do the hardest hiking first, about 2.5 miles to the North falls. Take the canyon trail back the other side for the full 8 miles or so and see every fall and you'll be loving the day.
  • This is a destination that everyone should experience at least once in their lives! Whether it's a day trip, or if you're camping, you must see it. They have campsites, or cozy cabins, for nearly any type of camper. There are showers, flushing toilets, and fresh water throughout. There's a park and picnic area, and when you're ready, beautiful hiking trails. Options of short, medium, and long paths take you to breathtaking views of the waterfalls. Though wonderful anytime, the falls are most dramatic when the water is higher. It's wise to prepare for a passing cloud if your camping in a tent, or out for a day hike. I enjoy a stay here whenever possible. They get full quick so check the schedule.
  • The parking lot was full but only ran into a couple groups on the trail. Restrooms at the south falls were popular but functional. Nearby playground for the kiddo. Oh and the falls are pretty darn impressive too. No dogs on the falls trails but I get it. Also don't let the map intimidate you too much, it seemed easier than it looked. Granted only did 2.5 miles (south falls upper and lower) but if we had more daylight we would have tried to see all the falls.
  • An excellent Oregon State Park with accommodating facilities. Paths cater to many different skill levels. There are paved paths that wheelchairs can travel on and other paths that experienced hikers and trail runners can also enjoy. The staff at both the falls and conference/camping area are fantastic...I know it's not feasible, but I wish the cafe was open more than just the weekends.
