This is an easy short hike to a nice waterfall viewpoint. I've done this trail multiple times staying at the nearby Castle Mountain Chalets. I enjoy it most as a winter trail as the frozen waterfall is gorgeous. One of the best parts of this trail is the lack of people on it; especially with nearby trails like Johnston Canyon being so busy. Start at the Rockbound Lake Parking area. About 300meters or so you'll see a sign taking you to the right to Silverton Falls. Part of the trail is on the side of a steep hill where the trail narrows. There are no hand railings on this trail so be careful when you get to the viewpoint! Dog friendly with lots of areas for your dog to stop and drink in Silverton Creek.
