Nestled in the lower elevation of Oregon's Cascade Mountains lies a temperate rain forest. It is here that the Trail of Ten Falls can be found. The trail and the falls descend to a forest floor covered with ferns, mosses, and wildflowers. You will also find stands of Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar. While thousands visit the park every year, it is large enough for you to find quiet places to sit and watch for birds.
One of the most gorgeous loops I have done!! I'd rate it as easy, there are a couple spots with a large flight of stairs, but otherwise the trail is gentle and well-maintained. Head up for dog-lovers, pieces of this loop are marked as dog friendly and pieces are not, so keep an eye out. I'll do this one again and again.
I didn't do the full Trail of 10 Falls, I cheated a bit and saw a few from trail heads. Walked 7.58 miles between all the ins and outs, should have just done the full loop! Nice and quiet on a Thursday afternoon. Was worth every single one of the 15k steps!!
