Silver Falls State Park, Sublimity

(600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We live about 10 miles from Silver Falls Park and don't go here often enough. It is beautiful every season of the year. I would skip it when it is raining but otherwise it should provide a good experi...  more »
  • Be sure to go early so you can hike all 10 falls. Take a nice lunch with you- don't forget something for the chipmunks !  more »
  • This great waterfall is very close to south of Portland. We had a chance to look at this beautiful falls with water in full flow and thanks to the spring time of the year. The best part is one can wal...  more »
  • I love the moss covered trees! I should be used to it but it still makes me feel serene and content. Even hiking in the pouring rain can't dampen my spirits where waterfalls are promised! We got a cabin for the first time. We loved loved loved it! I would've been happier with a few more coat hooks and a shelf or two. But, we were warm and dry.
  • Beautiful; worth a visit to see all of the waterfalls - each one gets more spectacular. Make sure to have good shoes to walk through the sometimes muddy area. No bathrooms into the trail so make sure to go at the beginning where there is a visitor center/store with restrooms. It's helpful to bring a lunch also since it's quite a hefty hike around the multiple falls.
  • Silver falls is a beautiful place to get outside and hike in year round! The trails are very well maintained and there's not too much steep incline/decline. The loop feels very short for being...was it around 8 miles? In the summer a few of the falls are good for swimming­čśŐ
  • LOVE this park. Great, paved and relaxed hiking with beautiful views. Paved bike trails crisscrossing the park are mostly on level ground and never too far into seclusion. There's a playground for children in the park as well as the campsite, and there's a shallow and pretty safe area for children to play in the stream. Also plenty of picnic tables, benches, and covered areas with picnic tables as well as barbecues scattered around. Decent bathrooms in the entrance, just make sure to bring your own snacks!
  • This is a beautiful place! Careful on the directions because there are two ends to the park and the main trail. Our directions put us at the "end" and there is virtually no parking -- the lots are tiny and no road parking is allowed. This is a very heavily used trail and there are very few bathrooms/porta-potties and no other options. We went in the late winter so the falls were filled.
