Trail of Ten Falls is a 7.1 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Silverton, Oregon that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
A trail in Silver Falls State Park past 10 beautiful waterfalls, perfect for the whole family. This casual hike through a beautiful canyon in Oregon's largest State park takes you past ten beautiful waterfalls ranging in height from 27 feet to 178 feet and 4 of them you can even walk behind. There are plenty of benches to rest at and the trail is extremely well maintained, perfect for the whole family. The park itself is 9,000 acres and contains over 24 miles of trails for biking and hiking.
Hiked the looped and camped in the park for 3 days. The loop to the falls is a must do. We stayed there in mid October and the trails were sparse with other ppl. Gorgeous area!!!
Went on 12/8/16 and only did the north falls as I was a bit short on time but I uploaded the pics and you can follow my #Robventures @Robdoesitall on insta, snap, and twitter!!! Absolutely GORGEOUS and there was snow!!!
Surprised and shocked at the beauty of this trail is an understatement! BEAUTIFUL easy/moderate trail. The waterfalls are incredible! Getting up close is what make this trail great! Reminded me of Eagle Creek Trail/Vertigo Mile.
This hike is almost too good to be true. After the second waterfall its difficult not to feel aesthetically spoiled. If you plan on completing the loop, prepare for a 4-5 hr day. This is definitely the most family friendly hike I've encountered as the trail is very well maintained and accessible to people of all skill sets. The loop has various entrances around the park, so it can easily be enjoyed as just a segment. The visitor center provides maps.
*Save your picnic until the later falls as there are a number of benches located behind a waterfall which provides a spectacular view.*
This canyon is one truly special place. The amazing thing is that it is so close to Salem. I went the day before Thanksgiving and encountered maybe 10 other people. The scenery is breathtaking, the trail is well maintained, the waterfalls are stunning. You will need to work for it on this one but it's worth every step.
