4.7/5 based on 550+ 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 were forced in from the coast due to storms. Otherwise we never would have found this gorgeous gem. If you are prepared to hike, there are 10 waterfalls to see. We walked in a rain forest to South ...  read more »
  • My wife and I did this 8.7 hike in 3.5 hours. This is the best hike I've ever done. 10 waterfalls. Well maintained trails. All the words you can use to describe this place is true. MUST do! 
  • A couple girlfriends and I did the 8.7 mile hike on a Monday in October. We started at the South Lodge Parking area and were able to use our Northwest Forest Pass for our daily parking permit. There i...  read more »
  • Silver Falls State Park is maybe 90 minutes from Portland, but it feels a world away. The waterfalls are simply stunning, and there are so many to see. What a majestic place! Helpful tip - bring a $5 bill so you can pay for your parking permit - I had to beg strangers for change for a $20.
  • I've been here on two occasions and am definitely looking forward to more experiences out this way. The first time, my parents and I hiked the 8-mile trail. This was back in Aug 2015, so Oregon was coming off of a pretty dry summer. Many of the falls were noticeably missing their fullness, but it made us appreciate it even more. The second time I went, I went with a large group of friends. I stayed behind in the picnic area to mind the groups belongings. The more active members went out while others stayed back and relaxed under the shade. Overall, the atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable. I am looking forward to coming back again
  • The trail of ten falls was incredible. Great for the family and pretty amazing scenery. I suggest starting at the south falls and make your way up to the upper northern falls for lunch. We sat on the rocks by the falls and had lunch we brought. It was very nice
  • Great state park. Nice trails along the rivers winding through huge trees. Plenty of water falls. Easy trails, moderate trails. Some are fairly steep.
  • This is a wonderful hike. Can be packed in the summer, but, anytime is good. If you are.doing the loop hikes be prepared, they take a little endurance. The switchbacks can be brutal in places. I recommend packing a lunch and plan on spending at least 3 hours walking around and hiking. One could make this an all day event and there is camping too.
