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 place is absolutely amazing. From the deer roaming in the park to the awe inspiring waterfalls. We split the waterfall hike into 2 days because my wife is disabled. The trails are well maintained...  more »
  • It is an amazing little hike. You can go behind the waterfall. It is beautiful. We took our granddaughter. She was able to complete the loop without a problem. It takes about 30 min to complete if you...  more »

  • There is a reason this place is so popular. The waterfalls are magnificent and easy to access. Depending on who you bring and their fitness level you can park at the north lot and see two falls and drive to the south, main lot and see a couple more falls with only a couple miles of walking, or you can walk the nine miles or so of the loop and see ten waterfalls. Either way you will have multiple chances to walk behind thundering waterfalls. If you haven't been here, put it on your list as this is one of the places that stands out in your memories, even years later.
  • This place is amazing, one of the best holes of all times if you are a waterfalls fan. This is one of the places I bring people who haven't hiked in Oregon if I want to impress them. The most parking is at the lodge the other lots can fill up, once you get a few hundred yards from the lodge the crowds for down dramatically. Dogs are only allowed in trails that don't have views, it's not really a pet friendly park.
  • This waterfall and the surrounding State Park is a must visit for Oregon. There are extensive paved trails making access easy. The falls itself are quite spectacular. The scale of the falls is captured in one of my photos (hint, the little dots are people). There is a lots of parking, though I imagine parking could be tough on very busy days. I drove through one of their campgrounds and it looked great. It's on my list for camping spots this summer.
  • So much amazingness! This is a MUST see area! I don’t recommend the rim or bike trail if you’re hoping to see the falls. The rim and bike trail are the only trails that dogs are allowed on. We got to the park as soon as it opened and did the whole Trail of Ten Falls and had the whole park to ourselves! Go early to beat the crowds! Do the whole trail too, it’s super easy.
  • Really great if you're into waterfalls, just watch out for humans and their debris. Bigfoot habitat, so pack up your trash or be eaten, literally. Perhaps the history of how our great infrastructure built here from almost 100 years ago could use some updating from the Civilian Conservation Corps. Just appreciated the volunteerism that keeps this place running, thank you all!
