Absolutely beautiful! Steep, but so worth the burning in your legs!

I can't imagine a more beautiful hike. Not so much of a workout at the pace we went, stopping so many times for photos and to enjoy the views, but worth every second. If you are at all considering this, do it. You'll be so glad you did. (But start out early, especially on the weekend--it will get crowded.)

Scenic views of waterfalls are plentiful on this hike. It didn't feel hard but one does need to be prepared for the distance. It was heavily trafficked on a midday Saturday – so don't expect a solitary experience – but that is to be expected. North Falls are worth the extra distance.

Steady uphill hike with a beautiful view from the top.

Awesome hike and you get to see some really cool waterfalls. Love that you can walk behind some of them. I would grab a map at the start as there are some forks in the road. Cafe is a cool place to grab a beer when you finish.

I did this hike last week and it was great! definitely a good workout with amazing views. I went on a Sunday, midday and only came across a few other hikers. It did take me a little bit of navigating to get to the trailhead though, because my GPS took me on a route that had a closed road. Luckily there are lots of other forest roads to get you there. I highly recommend this hike and would do it again.

Easy hike over beautifully maintained trail system. This park was created during depression days by the CCC and WPA programs. Cool history and awesome terrain. Fairly heavily traveled but no bikes or dogs. A real pleasure.

Hiked 08/15/18. The mileage is most definitely 19 miles round trip minimum. The flies are still kind of mental in the forested section above Ramona Falls but they thin out as you get out of the treeline and into the open meadows above. The last section along the open ridge has some harrowing drops to your left as you ascend. Have fun, be safe and pack it out.

steep but great views at the top. well marked trail.

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.

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!

Awesome Hike, highly recommended!

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....

Trail Is Still Closed At This Time. The Historic Columbia River Highway is Closed Until Further Notice. This Includes Trails Between Bridal Veil Falls and Multnomah, and Trails Between Multnomah and Ainsworth State Park. The Road Is Only Open To State Troopers, Game and WildLife Patrolmen, and Residents That Live On That Road. Anyone Caught Trying To Hike Said Trails Are Fined. This Is All Due To The Bad Fire They Had Last Year And Several Told Me They Aren't Sure When It Should Be Open. One Trooper Told Me It's Looking Like It Will Be June 2019. :( That Means Oneonta George, Oneonta Falls, Horsetail Falls, Ponytail Falls, Larch Mountain Overlook, Fairy Falls, & Wahkeena Falls Are All Closed Until Further Notice. If You Are Looking For Alternatives, You Can Look Into Multnomah Falls & Trails, Latourell Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Vista House. You Can Also Take A Drive To Ramona Falls.

Hiked Aug 2: Well marked trail, very steep. Had just rained and we were unprepared for getting very wet from leaves. Lots of blowdown so u will be climbing over trees. Didn’t make it to Kinzel Lake and we were rewarded with beautiful views on the way down because it cleared up. Lots of unusual nature surprises keep your eyes open for the rock that looks like a buffalo, the tree that looks like a big bad wolf and another tree that looks like a duck

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.

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 !

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.

loved it I did it in may a while back but never logged it beautiful at the top but ran into some snow and heavy rain on the way back down

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.

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.

Beautiful old growth forest some of the greatest waterfalls you’ll ever see. Great hiking trails. Trails get slippery when it rains and they can be snow covered in the winter. The waterfalls are beautiful in the winter if you can get to them. Safety is a concern on the trails when there is snow. If planning on camping you need to get spaces weeks or months ahead of time. Camp sites are crowded and close together. There are cabins and yurts, but you need to plan months ahead to get any of them. There are horse camps, bike trails, summer camps, family camps, picnicking, swimming, special events- civil war reenactments, history lectures and space to get away and be by yourself. There are spaces large enough to play football or baseball. The hike around the falls is the big attraction. The hike is easy with a few steep spots, but do to the length of the hike it should be and is listed as a moderate level hike. You can drive to several of the falls and take short hikes to see them. This is the largest state park in Oregon. Be sure to bring your camera to get pictures of the falls, wildflowers and old growth forest. A great place to build family memories.
