Completed this hike yesterday and was very impressed. We did the full loop through PP and GPS'd about 14.2 miles. Bugs were manageable. Sun exposure for the first 3 ish miles out of Zig Zag something to be mindful of, especially on a hot day. Sandy trail in areas so wear your boots! And conserve energy for the climb back out to Timberline. I ID'd approximately 15 flowers/shrubs along the way. Great time!

Awesome hike! We took our 5 year old and he did awesome. There were some hard parts with climbing rocks but he made it through the whole trail! I suggest flash lights, gloves for climbing the rocks and hiking boots, no flip flops.

We knew going in that it would/could be a crowded trail, since we were going on a Sunday. My boyfriend and I arrived around 1 and finished the whole thing at 4:30. Not as crowded as expected. Great hiking weather. All around great time.

Can't get to it. Large metal fence just before the left turn stating private property. 8.11.2018

This trail is amazing! Doing the entire 8.7 mile long loop took me about 4 hours w/ stopping frequently for photos. The first loops of the trail are heavily trafficked but if you continue past the Winter Falls loop there is only light traffic. There are areas that are slightly steep but not a lot of elevation gain overall. The falls are beautiful!

A little on the easier side, but still really pleasant. By noon it was heavily trafficked.

3.5 out of 5 seems like a fair score.

This was for sure top 3 for flowers this year for me.

Very nice hike, with beautiful scenery. A lot of people were not very friendly and didn't smile, something we are not used to. It was nice to see Rep. Adam Schiff on the hike, that was very exciting. My wife and I enjoyed the hike and will definitely be back soon. We will most likely rent a cabin to make it more memorable....

Amazing view , kids had a great time . Very well maintained trail and easy short hike .

Must see! My 8 year old did this hike and loved it! Will be going back in the spring for sure.

absolutely awesome. well worth the full hike of all 10 falls. bring snacks and water as its almost a full 8 miles especially if you need a bathroom break

Well trafficked but absolutely gorgeous waterfalls. Best in spring or early summer. By July the Winter Falls were dry. Great swimming holes, bring your suit and have a dip if it’s hot.

Both gates locked. There is a couple miles of hilly gravel road to walk before coming to the trail head. Actual hike In to the falls was great. With the added gravel hike I would only take older kids that are fine walking a boring, hot road with hills. Falls were cool, we went to the right.

Since the Eagle Creek fire I've been on the hunt for trails that felt similar to my beloved Columbia River Gorge. Silver Falls is unique offering family safe hiking that allows you to experience several massive falls in a relatively short loop. I loved being able to go behind the falls and actually touch the roaring spray. The views are stunning. If you go during the hottest months bring plenty of water. I visited in early July and some brave teens hiked down to the water. The water was far too cold for me to swim but if the trail gets too hot go ahead and jump in. Be careful when you plan your trip because it is a very popular tourist attraction. The weekends get crowded. There is a cafe, interactive center, gift shop and bathrooms on site. There are also picnic tables if you choose to pack your own lunch.

Stunning views but busy in the summer.

Great hike! Easy hike for the whole family. Today was the beginning of a holiday and very crowded. Get there early and get a good parking spot. Like another poster said, start from the South Falls parking lot !

Very unique! Def make sure to take gloves and layers. It’s 40* down there. Wouldn’t recommend taking little kids through the whole length of the caves. Def a must see.

Super short, easy hike to nice view of surprisingly tall and picturesque waterfall.

There is a locked gate; you can no longer access the falls by car. You can park and walk a few miles to get to the trail head. Several people said the wish someone updated the access before driving up.

This was one of the most amazing hikes I have ever completed. The views are definitely earned but amazing!!!

The flies on the way up is the only negative to this trail.

And directions to help the next: go to Romona Falls cross bridge, go on timberline Rt up the hill and you will find the junction for the yocum ridge trail.

Hiked the 7+ mile loop for the second time with friends from Ohio. The weather was perfect, the trail was dry and the trail was not too busy for a Thursday. The only downside, this time of year the water flows is low, so not as much water going over the falls. We did it in just over 3 hours.

such an amazing hike! I loved being in the rainforest setting and getting to see all those waterfalls, as someone from Kansas, was so fucking legit!!

Tougher hike, but worth the views! Left around 8:45am, and got to resting place on the ridge around 1:15pm. Chilled till 2:00, and then got back to our car around 5:40pm. Bugs never bothered us, but they were everywhere. Unless we were on the wrong path, there is some snow at the base of the ridge that covers the path, we went up and around but think going under the snow is the better decision. We will be back to camp towards the top!

Cons: the bugs and severity in which you will get swarmed, mostly wooded with little views along the way (except for crowded Romona). Pros: well worth the woods walk, not very crowded past Romona, incredible view at the top. I camped up in the meadow because the other campsites even further up just didn’t have as great as the view as the first one in the meadow to your right. But wow. Super beautiful.

easy trail. very enjoyable for a Saturday hike

We did the upper level and it was very interesting with climbing over boulders, up walls, and through tight spaces. Definitely wear layers as it's very cold in the caves (you can see your breath). Hiking boots and headlamps are a must. You will need your hands for climbing. Wished I would have had some gloves. Overall, a fun hike that was challenging but not too strenuous.

i went early (just after 6am) and went in from the north falls location. The trail is very well maintained and definitely the easier side of moderate if you're somewhat active of a person. We enjoyed a lot of tomfoolery and lollygagging and turned it into a 10mile, 6hr hike but so worth taking the time to stop and enjoy everything and take a few breaks for the people less accustom to hiking in my group. the codes were great, very few areas had any issues as far as overgrowth etc. I will say that if you're going to actually enjoy nature go Early! towards the end of the hike there were a lot of younger folk who were trampling off trail and getting down screaming in the water under some of the falls and very little trail etiquette. I will definitely go again.

When we got to about mile 3 someone moved the sign and sent us in the wrong direction. We were way off track on a very hot day. Needs better signs
