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.

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.

Awesome. Probably, the most aesthetic trail with waterfalls in Oregon with the second being Multnomah-Bridal Veil-Horse Tail area.

Such a fun hike. We had ages 11 to 56 in our party of hikers and everyone loved it. We did the full 8 mile loop and picked a perfect day for it. Trails are in great condition and lots of interesting landscape to look at. An Oregonian must do.

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.
