Great easy trail. Hard to figure out the trail across silver falls to complete the loop

Did this on 4/3/21. Nicely maintained trail with mile markers. Great views of the lake and beautiful wildflowers. Appreciated the people who are obeying the leash rule. No trash and no dog doo. A great day!

Not a bad trail, nice and quiet, but not really much for views. It's mostly forested, nothing super unique about it. Probably wouldn't go on a weekend, I've heard people shooting though they're probably not allowed to on this land. I can see how some reviewers are creeped out due to the tree cover, though I've never found a cabin that someone mentioned. Nothing special but if you're nearby it's not a bad place.

Nature tripsBridge outMuddy

Very enjoyable trail for all levels. At mm 1.5, the trail becomes a little more primitive. At mm 2, you begin to see why it is rated moderate. Very peaceful trail for most hikers, not great for individuals with a recent joint replacement.

Beautiful area, and the falls are just gorgeous! The upper trail isn’t that difficult speaking as an inexperienced and out of shape hiker, and it has some beautiful sights! Road was open, bathrooms are open, upper trail is rocky and slightly muddy...wear good hiking boots.

The road there was open, not too bad. Don’t follow AllTrails with google. Just follow the signs when you get closer. It’s easy to find. AWESOME! Both of the Falls were roaring. A little muddy in spots. A nice short Trail. Well worth the drive down. * No parking fee. * GPS works great. * Vault toilets at TH.

Beautiful trail along Eel Lake. A few downed trees to navigate over or around but very good condition overall. Few wet/muddy spots but easy to get around. Put it on the list!

It was great! Not many people at all. The weather was perfect. Definitely some slippery, muddy water crossings.

The road up was closed. I suppose you can park on the street and walk up to the trail. Not sure, but disappointed we couldn’t drive up.

I am not sure how this trail received as high of a rating as it does. It is deep sand and not fun to walk on, especially when the beach is right nearby with much more beautiful views. May be good for horseback, certainly not for walking.

Nice views of the lake at a lesser known trail. This is out and back and dog friendly if on a leash. Also has a nice park you can picnic at. Took us awhile to find where trail starts-park near kids playground and head towards the fish ladder area, you will see trail from there.

The directions were ok until we got to the horse staging area. We talked with a ranger, who told us the trail was unmarked and could be found if we went on the horse trail, which we did. Deep, soft sand and terrible to trudge through. If you like that kind of hiking, this trail is for you. Not worth the effort to find.

Pretty walk but ended at a marsh. would be cool if they set up a sitting or swimming area at the end to make it more worth it.

Enjoyable moderate hike among stands of large conifers. The trail follows the meandering lake shore and is usually 20-60 feet above the actual water. This provides great view opportunities up the many arms of Eel lake. There are some rotten Bridges near the 2 1/2 mile point that are less than safe. Great hike, kid and dog friendly.

Silver Falls trail is supposedly a loop with the water fall at the midpoint but you literally have to cross over the falls to continue the loop and after watching some people struggle with the crossing, I decided it wasn’t worth the risk of damaging my nice camera! And I hadn’t brought a back pack knowing it was a short hike. So ended up doing out and back out instead of the loop, which was just fine, too. Silver Falls is epic! So however you get up there and back, it’s worth it. Golden Falls trail is much easier, no incline, and just some rocks to scramble over at the very end. Even though Silver Falls trail is a bit more challenging (more consistent incline), it’s the better of the two waterfalls. But we did both in about an hour so may as well do each!

One of our new favorite places. The short hikes to both falls are gorgeous with all the foliage. The falls were incredible and fun to explore. Can’t wait to bring the extended family to do this one! Worth every second!
